I have this burning in my soul, it's a desire, it's a passion, it's just a God damn joy fo me; and that is my marlin model 1894 (SS) in stainless steel is my drug of choice! There is not to much more that gets my blooding pumping like shooting off .44 mag hollow points into watermelons, cantalopes, or pumpkins (well even a coyote, bobcat, hog, etc....) My son enjoys his marlin 1894 in the blued walnut (my hand me down to him) i could miss lunch when having that much fun!! kevin and his son (my lil buddy)

what type of sights have u put on that Marlin 1894 (44mag)? I have one but have not been satisfied w/ a number of different sights for all of the usual reasons, to include age. It is a really nice little carbine for 100 yard deer work if you're using some of the better ammo.

Few of the modern sights are going to fit that Marlin of yours. Btw, you're right it does make a fine deer rifle. But anyway, most of the good and really good optics are designed to fit on the Picatinny RIS or Rail Integrated System. For that Marlin of yours you might find a 3x MARS or an older Burris 3.5 x 9, but that's a very expensive optics system and much more than needed for 100 yard deer banging. Another possibility would be if you could find, at a reasonable price, the Zeiss Ikon Norseman 2.5 x. that should fit your Marlin and save you a lot of money over a Mars or a Burris. Mars may in fact make an optic that is designed to fit the Marlin, but the price would be outrageous even if one is available.

Once again we agree about certain weapon. The M310R CheyTac is an outstanding piece of work. If you had one, would you have it chambered for the CheyTac .416 round, the CheyTac .375 round or the Lapua .338 round? Also I wish they would make a semi-automatic version of this weapon. I prefer semi-automatics to bolt action the way some people prefer automatic to standard transmission I guess.

As for me if i had to pick one weapon overall it would be the Tavor STAR 21 designated marksman's rifle. Weapon can be chambered either for the NATO standard 5.56mm and any of the special and magnum rounds available for such, most of which are one company made or wildcats, and it can also be chambered for the 7.62mm x 51mm NATO round. It has effective ranges from 300m to 600m with the 5.56 rounds and variants: NATO M865 or SSG109, to with the 7.62mm 800mm and with the 5.56 OTM can range all the way out to 1000m with 1 MOA.

The CheyTac is .408 CheyTac and not .416. Barrett makes the .416 round. I like the .408 CT for long long range accuratize.
