I picked it up today. I just love the feel of this rifle. The action is buttery smooth & actually feels better than my BLR! I put 7 rounds in & cycled them all through, as fast as I could....everything worked perfectly Smile

I stopped at another dealer & they had the Hornady 165gr flex tips. A little hotter load than the old loads.

I am really looking forward to shooting it. It had a cheapo 3-9 scope on it, but for the Michigan woods I'm thinking a fixed 4X.

Is that a pre-"microgroove" barrel?

From what I have read it does have the Micro Groove rifling. It is a 1964 model.

Older Marlins usually have even better wood than that. You young guys hardly ever get to see fine figured walnut any more. All you see are plastic stocks and sap wood. I've got a Marlin .22 (39A?) with beautiful crotch wood.

The .32 Special is an interesting rifle caliber. Seems to fit somewhere between the .30-.30 and the .35 Rem.

Anything other than a flat nose bullet would be an exception rather than the rule in tubular magazines. I'd be curious to know how long you could store the rifle with a full magazine without the flex tips deforming.

Hmmmm......never really thought about it but it doesn't apply to me as it will be unloaded after every hunt/range time anyway. I don't even know yet if it will like these bullets, but I have access to Rem 170 Core Lokt as well. These are just considerably hotter.

I agree! I am re stocking since the deer herd has been depleted & I will have to go north to the rifle zone where the deer weren't affected by the fly bite.
