Like the sights.
"Adjustable Skinner Sights™ receiver-mounted peep sight is perfect for rapid target acquisition."
Pence makes no sense
I shoot better with a long sight radius. I wouldn’t want to shoot clays with a 16” barrel shotgun either.Bisbee wrote: Thu May 19, 2022 5:50 am Hmm, “rapid target acquisition” with a 45-70? Jeebus.
Anyone still needing to shoot buffaloes from a moving train or sumthin?

Then that would be the first one Ruger/Marlin came out with, 1895 SBR with a 19 inch barrel.sikacz wrote: Thu May 19, 2022 3:27 am Might be interesting if it came with a 28” barrel.
Yes. Ruger pistols may be cheaper than other gun manufacturers, but they don't scrimp on quality.

Hope your neighbors are a mile or so away from you...CDFingers wrote: Thu May 19, 2022 8:06 am I'm totally glad about the quality of these--I have Marlins and Rugers and can confirm the quality is high. The short barrel here is designed for quick action in the woods: "Trapper." Sure, it would be more accurate with a longer barrel and sight radius. The short one is quicker. At home, I'm sure lookin' at the business end of one of those would be like peering down a train tunnel to Hell.
Yeah, and I can't believe the round went straight through that little clay pot without obliterating it.CDFingers wrote: Fri May 20, 2022 9:34 am Did you all see how good Hickock45 is with that .45-70? That video above compares the Remington version and the Marlin version.
And that was only from the Muzzle Blast.CDFingers wrote: Sun May 22, 2022 8:34 am Last time I took out the Siamese Mauser .45-70. I'm gonna stay away from the 500 grainers.
