    Did you get the deal with the charging handle included?

    They stepped up their NiB BCG deal to include charging handles as well now for that same $89.99 price.

    I think mine was about a two week wait, but it was worth it, I do think they should show it’s backordered on their website, but it was worth the wait,

    I completely understand first world problems but..... There are enough companies out there that can do internet sales correct, I just don't have time for those that can't.

    I am happy with my Rock River NM 2-stage triggers in my other ARs so I ordered one of those last night. It was shipped today and will be here by Monday.

    Yeah, I completely understand, I do know that people do have problems with Mark LaRue and his attitude, I think it is kind of shady not to say upfront it’s backordered, I ordered it just to have as a spare and wasn’t in a hurry, but on the same note I’ve been waiting over a month for a Gcode holster, probably should of went safariland instead

    Not exactly a gun, but these arrived in the mail. @TeacherSmurf makes jewelry and some of them have charms.

    1000 rounds of American Eagle 5.56mm 55gr FMJBT XM193BK ammo (it would take me 50 months to accumulate the same amount of ammo if SB 501 becomes law) $249.99 after rebate American Eagle 5.56mm 55gr FMJBT Ammunition 1000rds Loose Pack - XM193BK and three extra evil "large capacity" magazines for my S&W Performance Center 15-22. Get 'em while you still can.

    With all of the new gun control bills coming 2019 Firearms Legislation - Oregon Firearms Federation it is possible law-abiding gun owners in Oregon are going to be limited to 19th Century technology (the bad guys of course will still have the modern stuff) so I decided to get a cap and ball revolver to get used to the only guns our leaders (guided by The Children) will allow us to have in the future. I got a new Uberti Walker from Dixie Gun Works on sale for $389.95 RH0450 Uberti Walker Revolver

    This thing is massive (15.7" overall length) and heavy (4.5 lb.):

    along with some of the things necessary to shoot it with (before the Oregon Legislature bans or limits those too)

    Here it is after I removed the bluing from the cylinder and polished it (original Colt Walker cylinders were bare metal "in the white") and cleaned up the brass trigger guard:

    Next stop is shipping it to Goons Gun Works for a full service package Services — Goons Gun Works

    BSG, you pushed me off the fence. I ordered 2000 rounds of XM193 and 20 PMAGs from PSA. $299 for 1000 rounds and 10 PMAGs at this link: Federal 5.56 NATO 55gr FMJ-BT 1000 Rounds Ammunition & Ten Magpul PMAG 30 5.56x45mm Magazines

    That price is after rebate. I might have to order one of those deals, or similar, each month for a while with all the proposed legislation.

    Also some CCI Quiets to replace the 22lr I shot yesterday. Oh, and a Howard Leight hearing band. The one Hickok45 uses. Figured I'd give it a try when shooting with a stock that doesn't fit my earmuffs well. He's been using it for years and seems to like it. It was $6 so no harm in trying it out.

    Nice looking Walker there. And you are historically correct about the cylinder being in the white and they are fun to shoot. But for a replacement for a modern handgun there are better choices IMO. I have a Walker and I rarely shoot it just because of the size and weight of the thing. More practical (I own all of these and they are all replicas) are the 1858 Remington(3), the 1860 Colt, the 1851 Colt(3) and the Rogers and Spencer for use instead of a modern handgun. I like the feel of the 1851 & 1860 Colts and my Euroarms .36 1858 which is built on a smaller frame than the .44's and feels in hand more like an 1851 Colt. I have read that Ruger modeled their Old Army after the Rogers & Spencer which was the most advanced of the cap and ball revolvers and the last new cap and ball revolver design before cartridge guns were introduced. Of course this is just my opinion which is worth just what you paid for it.

    Ordered 2 muzzle brakes today. They were on sale and future rifles need muzzle devices!

    And yesterday I picked up a grind to fit limbsaver recoil pad for my over/under shotgun and a couple hogue grips for ARs from sportco.

    Speaking of sportco... I have decided that I will never ever buy ammo from them after seeing that it is all marked up by about 75%

    Nice rifle and what a great buy...I hope to stumble on a older 336 someday.
    I wish you many years of good shooting with that Marlin.

    Incredible find. I absolutely cherish my ‘58 336SC although I spent almost 2 1/2 times your find for it 20 some years ago. I might have overspent but I’ll never be sorry. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.

    That makes it one of the earliest examples of the 336. One of the first few made after the war. I am not a collector but you can bet I’d find a way to keep her a nice comfy spot in my safe. What a steal!
