And Z....don't we whipping that "Leg" out at Moab in March....we dont' want to see it....:dispirited:Z, its not nice to pull our leg like that, you had Tommy and me worried.
Jut don't ask us to pull that third leg, thats for all those lady-friends of yours.
Darn bank walkers!
I have that Montgomery Wards lever action but in .22 Mag. Actually made by Marlin for wards. Outstandingly accurate and the lever has the shortest pull I have ever seen. Model 57 I think but will have to check the Wards number.We picked all our toys from those catalogs. My favorite was the 22 lever action rifle from the Wards Catalog
Small misquote! Mine is a JC Higgin's Model 44 DLM but made by Marlin which called it a model 57 in .22LR and a 57M in the magnum. Yes, absolutely a 1960s vintage rifle.That's interesting. I would like to know the model. As I remember, no rifles were chambered for it until sometime in the '60's. I always liked the cartridge, although as a boy, my "big rifle" was a .22 hornet.
Yup! Back in those days gun manufacturers would re label various guns for Sears, Wards, Western Auto and some other catalog stores. Same guns but usually with lower grade stocks. Mine is a survivor and my brother has the Marlin 57 in 22LR that is identical in every way except 2 inches shorter. They were dubbed the "Levermatic". I have proved it many times at 50 yards a quarter takes three shots and three hits and the magnum will reach out pretty nice up to 100 yards with no change in hold or scope settings. I am betting at 100 yards I could fix Zs third leg so it was not so much of a burden!That's a good looking well cared for rifle. I had a JC Higgins shotgun when I was a kid. If memory serves, it was a Sears house brand.
