A friend of the family is slimming down. He offered me his 1942 Remington 1903 which has been "sporterized" with a Lyman peep and cut down handguard, and a 1964 Marlin 336 in .35 remington.
The lever gun was his "bear gun" for years in Pa. The 1903 was his fathers deer gun. I'm a sucker for the old marlin levers and have wanted a 1903 for a long time. Range day tomorrow to verify my purchases. These guns have some serious miles and history
