Marlin 1 of 1000, to 1of1

Wanted to complete old style look, so I obtained a Marlin factory crescent stock to go with the .45-70 octagon barrel. Seems to look all together now from the original flat stock.
What say you?

It looks great but you may want to keep the flat stock to shoot the rifle. The crescent stock can be painful to shoot even with a less powerful cartridge.

It's OK with a shooting vest and a gel recoil pad. Even with the flat stock it was a beast! But your thinking is correct.

I purchased a few older Marlin 1893s and 1894s. The first was a 1893 rifle in 32-40. It has a crescent butt plate. It was painful to shoot in shirt sleeves. The second 1893 was a take down 30-30 rifle with a special order shotgun butt plate. It was much more comfortable to shoot. I have two 1894 carbines in 25-20 with flat butt plates and they are very soft shooting.

Very nice and classic looking, but I do like the nice hunk of rubber on my 1895G.

That is why I got a shooting vest and put a gel recoil pad in. I have so many monster guns to choose from with steel butt plates, heavy bullets and so forth. It did not seem logical to spend money on every gun to tame the recoil. Plus slip on pads change the length. I actually don't like the looks of recoil pads most of the time. So I bought a nice shooting vest that any gun, anytime will handle. One price, one time, and go shoot.
When your young it's a badge of cool to have a green and purple shoulder from your Garand and a half a can of M2! Not so much now.
Not trying to sell anything, just sharing my thoughts and why it works for me.

Have you given thought to get the pin? the eliminates the crossbolt safety. I put one on my 1895CB but if I ever sold it I would switch it back. It just looks better without that safety in my opinion. Good looking rifle love the looks of that crescent stock. Cheers Joe

I just prefer to shoot enough to keep my shoulder tough..............that way I don't get bruises.

Gives me something to talk about when I get a massage and she wants to know why one shoulder is all bruised. And No, there is no happy ending.

Nice.........I was suggesting ways to keep shooting more powerful guns comfortable. Some may have health problems and could need alternate ways to keep going to the range. Myself, I glue ground glass to my butt plates just to enhance the experience so I can tell the world what a man I am. Of course you don't get the full effect till about the 500 round mark everyday for 7 days. But that's just me. But I didn't want the rest to know how it really is.
Hot Brass don't give a s*~% Hot Brass don't care
I open honey badgers with a p-38 and snack on their brains
(Satire, and hyperbole can be fun) ha,ha,ha
But hey, thanks for the suggestion, I got it covered.
Hot Brass, out
