    Very nice...especially beings it's from your Dad.

    A heritage firearm to enjoy with and pass down to the boys.

    { My only two lever actions are a Winchester Model 1894 in .30-30 and a Rossi Mare's Laig in .44 Mag. }

    Those Mare’s Legs are sweet. I haven’t ever figured out how to correctly hold one. Guess I need to break out the Steve McQueen.

    Yea...break out your inner Josh Randall and be one with the gun.

    I usually just twirl rack one in the chamber...and being right handed...raise it up and out while I sight down my arm to the sights and pull the trigger.

    It is a point and shoot system, but, once you know the gun, and your own skill, it becomes a learned motor skill.

    { And...you can twirl, rack and shoot from the hip with practice...lots of practice !! }

    This is my Marlin 39A Golden. It belonged to my dad that he bought when he was in the Air Force. It was 57 years ago.

    Here is my Marlin 59A Golden as well. I bought it off a friend Mom after he passed.
    It was manufactured in 1963. That make it 55 years old.
    Almost as old as yours jeffshore. LOL

    My Henry octagonal barrel .22 on top, and it's .45colt sibling on the bottom (Rossi 92). The Henry receiver was modified by soaking it in paint stripper, then burnishing it with fine steel wool. Then a coat of clear lacquer spray paint to keep fingerprints off the silver. I think Henry may make a silver one now (?), but they didn't back when I did this treatment. Moral to the story - don't fret when you eventually get a scratch on that painted Henry receiver. Just take ALL the paint off when that happens, and make yourself a more unique looking firearm!
