One more time. This is was a junk Marlin tube magazine 22 I ran across and decided to rescue. It had six bulges in it's long, skinny barrel and about six inches of the rifling was destroyed on the muzzle end. My original plan was to reline the barrel and refinish it's poor ol' stock and make it a truck gun. The lifter mechanism didn't work correctly anymore and my repair efforts failed so I decided to have some fun with the old thing. I relined the barrel, removed the tube magazine turing it into a single shot and then made a new stock. The bolt handle wouldn't clear a scope and had been welded back on. When I began to heat it to bend it the handle fell off! So I made a new handle, welded it in place and polished it up. Turned an aluminum knob for the bolt handle and whittled out an aluminum buttplate and trigger guard. Then I went a little crazy with the airbrush on the stock. It shot fairly well but I experimented with different muzzle devices I made and the brass blob you see on it made quite a difference.
