is that one of those new polish made rifles? i will have to get one for my Father in lawHere is my venison tool in .30-30
I traded my old winchester for it. The winchester was lighter and prettier but not very safe. (no safety, hammer can cock accidentally, have to carefully lower the hammer after loading- can slip with cold fingers- goes bang, embarrasses you and scares the deer away)
This marlin is safer and has the mount you are talking about. It was a bit of a pain to install. I had to file the mount to make it fit. It works well.
