    Minneapolis is going to burn tonight

    This incident will be used to make the case that guns should be taken from police officers.

    Marlin Texan - Bullseye Replacement

    I made the final repair with sawdust and wood glue. With proper sanding and now four coats of TruOil, It's looking as good as it can for a repair. I'll do at least four more coats before I'm ready to call it complete.

    GA 45 ACP for your 9x18 MAK

    Bad news, mixed with OK news. First, I don't have the ammo you're looking for. I did find some on the shelf last week, at Barrow Gun store in Butler (Barrow Automotive in Google maps). I checked with Hoss, but he didn't need it, so I didn't buy it. It's been a week, but they may still have...

    Marlin Texan - Bullseye Replacement

    In a possibly insane move, I have removed the putty and made a third attempt at getting this as close as possible. I used a drill on the end of the stock - the area under the butt pad - to make a little sawdust. I mixed it with the darker wood putty and reapplied it to the damaged area. Not...

    Marlin Texan - Bullseye Replacement

    Yep, if you think about how a gun shop typically displays rifles, it's a quick way to identify a Marlin on the rack. I think many people have used it as a mounting location because - the bullseye is in the location where oem rear mounts are often provided - it's a location you can drill...

    Marlin Texan - Bullseye Replacement

    Now block sanded flush with the stock. The wood filler was too light to get a good finished color match. I picked up some walnut putty today and it should look much better under the finish coat. Nothing to do now but let it dry.

    Marlin Texan - Bullseye Replacement

    I used a narrow belt sander to remove the extra material, bringing it down to about 1/16" proud.

    Marlin Texan - Bullseye Replacement

    I worked with one end until I could get it to fit, then tapered it out to the other end to create a tight fit. Happy with the size, I added a little glue to the hole and seated it with a small mallet. These pics also show how the top edges of the hole were damaged.

    Marlin Texan - Bullseye Replacement

    I refinished this Marlin 336 a few years ago, both the bluing and wood finish. At the time, one issue that I didn't address was replacing the missing bullseye in the stock. Someone in the past had attached a sling mount to the stock, putting wood screw through the bullseye. The original drilled...
