    its a 30-30 was looking for a 444 but wanted an early marlin but found this on holts so i took a punt with a low offer, it looks like it had been resigned to the cubboard the bluing is like new the stock had a few deep dings but a week of ironing and oiling has done wonders, i am using 170 grain pills and open sights i ended up with 2 1/2 inch group at just under 100 yrds I am going to skinner sights so should help. It turns out to be an antique model in either late 1973 or early 74

    Lever guns are great fun, and a very useful tool to boot, I have an Ulberti 45-60, cartridge for woodland stalking, very fast follow up shot if needed and that heavy bullet knocks them down, mine looks like a Winchester 73 on steroids, a long 28" octagonal barrel, and a larger action to boot. The 45-60Win is about 0.26" shorter than a 45-70, as a modern repro these can be loaded higher than the original ones, same as the original 45-70s, the new 45-70 reproes can be loaded higher using sensible smokeless loads. I'm going to do a speed action rebuild to lighten the springs etc to make it even more slicker to cycle the action, haven't heard of skinner sights was going to put on a tang sight, but would prefer something better than the original crappy things it came with. deerwarden

    Skinners are very nice sights, and he is a really nice bloke to deal with.
    Mine were posted out before we had even worked out how I would pay for them, as it was before he did Pay-Pal and had a proper web site.

    Nice rifle, the antique carbines are hard to find around here but yours is the second one I've seen on SD . Maybe they're all in the UK lol . The Skinners sights are a really practical sight , I had a set on a Marlin 336 in 35 REM . They will help you get better accuracy out of your rifle and are much faster to use , especially in low light . I recently picked up a Marlin 1895 in 45/70 that will probably get a set put on it . A perfect combo for Moose , Bear , etc in the thick stuff . And you are all right about lever guns , there is something that just feels right when you pick one up .
