Project Lil Buckeroo...22 Trainer Rifle
« on: September 24, 2017, 08:44:57 pm »
I bought a rifle at a garage sale for $20, it was missing the bolt, trigger guard and rear sight elevator.
JC Higgins model 41 (Marlin 100/101). I decided to try and build a cheap youth trainer rifle, by shrinking the dimensions and then refinishing the wood and steel. I think it turned out pretty good

Here is what I started with:



and here it is finished:

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    That is beautiful.  You are shaming me into thinking about doing wood refinishing on my kiddos JC Higgins.
