Okay, tired of the...

I am of tired seeing the lousy quality rifles being manufactured nowdays. Even the ones I like are crap,,,, so considering I am bored tonite I thought I would post some pictures of some of my old rifles made when quality mattered. Heck, even though when production was pushed during war time the quality was superior to today. Yeah, I'm bored

The Martini was originally .450/577 while the Swiss is 7.5x53. If I remember right the Martini Cadet was .310?

All very nice, I agree with you, they just do not make them like the used too.

Re: Okay, tired of the...

I have two Marlins that the quality is greatly different. One is a 35 built in 1961 or 1962...it's solid, tight, flawless, with great fit & finish. The other is I think a 1972 model in 30-30(this one I converted to 444)....it was always sloppy and had a mediocre fit & finish. Not that it's not fine for a shooter or anything, but it doesn't even feel the same as the earlier one. The new ones seem like garbage to me....so I won't buy one.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

I have a few Oberndorf and Loewe Mausers made prior to 1900 that the fit and finish rival any custom gun of today. There's nothing quite as beautiful as an old German fire blued finish as shown on the ejector box.
