Those have been getting popular for the last couple of years…known mostly as “space cowboys” on the interwebs 🙂 

There’s been a resurgence of lever popularity amongst the new guns too, driving up prices and lowering availability…

I predict you’ll see that in a Hollywood movie before the end of the year. And then they’ll say it should be banned.

Only a gun–what a relief!  Thought you might be referring to some new oppression of gun owners enacted by the NYS legislature.

Cartridge holder on fore-arm is an old idea, similar device designed for Trap Door Springfield in 1880s, & I made one to use on my SS .22s.

I “like” that Marlin is selling new guns.  However, I’m holding off until they come out with a folding bayonet.

I’d hate to see the amount of dirt and crap that would get caught up in that forearm. I bet it kicks on both ends with the lite weight stocks. Probably need to purchase some spare recoil pads to go with it.

If they’re young and dumb enough to buy that 45-70 they’ll probably survive the beating it will administer. They probably won’t be going through large amounts of ammo, though.

We must give these young fellows some slack. They choose hideous merchandise because of insufficient blood flow to the brain. 

Think back to your youth and remember what organ was getting most of the blood flow.

An ugly gun is a lot cheaper than child support.

I don’t have the words to describe the extent to which something like this is not for me.  Not even if it were chambered in the .32 Special Wink

At least it wasn’t a vintage Winchester! The fact that Winchesters aren’t easily scoped saves a lot of them.

 

I am what others consider young at 40, but I don’t care for that sort of thing. I like the old stuff, or at least traditional styled stuff even if new.
