    Want a 19x... grind off that goofy lip on the front so I can use any mags I want and throw a threaded barrel in and a Agency comp.

    The 19x is a compact slide and barrel on a full sized frame, correct?

    {<huh}

    Don't make much sense to me, but whatever floats your boat, I guess.

    I like how the 17 grip fits in my hand but hate how long it is.

    Weird I know.

    The fact that Far Cry 5 was set in fictional Montana was a major reason for me wanting to play it. Kinda also makes me want an AR again, kinda.

    I made the switch last season to a more ready to go system. I keep my bino harness with all of it's contents, a tree harness, a jacket, and my hunting backpack in my truck all hunting season. That way I all I have to grab is a weapon, and I'm ready to hit the woods. Another benefit I've found is that the bino harness makes a great place to rest my phone. As more or less of a stereotypical eastern tree stand hunter I find myself often watching youtube videos while sitting in a tree.

    That reminds me that I need to get a better backpack before the season starts. Mine is way too heavy and has too many pockets.

    I’ve run AGC bono harnesses for years, there’s nothing better out there. I keep a few rifle rounds, range finder, havalon knife and tags in there as well.

    Okay guys . . . need some help making a decision.

    I've got this complete 450 Bushmaster Upper and 100 rds of ammo that I'm trying to sell . . . I've had a guy offer a Marlin 1895 in 45/70 as a trade. I've seen pictures . . . it looks like a nice rifle and has less than 75 rds through it.

    Just not sure I have a need for it.

    Are you going to try to sell the 45/70 if you traded for it?

    Do you have experience with 124-147+gr 125-130 power factor 9mm?

    Also any experience with total synthetic jackets.

    Yeah, they make up names but effectively i believe its nothing but powder coating.

    I like them. The hard one's load good and shoot good. Im pushing the 45cal 225grn bullets 970fps outa my 1911 and xd. They dont foul in the barrel or nutt'n.

    What year was the Marlin made? You want pre-Freedom Group made Marlins. Once Freedom Group bought them their QC went to crap. The older ones bring higher $$.

    Well whatever is easier to sell. 450 isn't exactly super popular. 45-70 might be easier to sell

    Is it a JM stamped marlin or one made within the last year? If so go for it, if not I’d give it a thourough examination as there were several years where these rifles were just junk.

    Which model is it? The guide gun or the big loop extended magazine version? Or is it the full size? I have one of the guide gun models and it’s pretty sweet, it’s short so it’s very handy, it comes along anytime we go camping or boacting.

    The brand new on a seem to be much better than those crappy freedom group ones, I agree though if it’s a JM stamped one, jump on it.

    I'll need to take a closer look at the pictures . . . I've asked for a manufacture date.

    Hopefully I won't have to worry about it as I've sent a potential buyer an invoice for the upper.
