Thread: In the begining there was...

  1. #1

    In the begining there was...

    ... a little used .444 Marlin p14. A lightweight woodland stalking rifle.
    But now... hmmmmm.... PIGGY gun!

    After some thought it needs two little modifications!
    1, A sound moderator (Believe me aesthetics do not play a role here, I have tinnitus from years of shooting - it only gets worse, so save the I hate moderators comments, I am the one shooting it!!!!)
    2, Seeing that the rifle already has Redfield type bases it needs a subtle mod here to enable a scope to red-dot easy change... Think I have cracked that too!!

    Can you get factory ammo for a .444 Marlin?

    Yeah it is available but never used any only reloads!
    The really interesting part is the swaging gear that makes pointy (4 cal. ogive) bullets...
