    Good evening. Found this rare gem and plan on re-finishing the wood. Here are a few pictures of it so far. 1e619987398708b5d6122cd72b4cea80.jpg 20200220_170239.jpg 20200220_170252.jpg 20200220_170259.jpg 20200220_170246.jpg

    Forgot to add a little history. This is a lever action 22 mag. So the 44 dlm was made by Marlin and crosses over as a Marlin 57m. Marlin made 66,889 of the 57m between 1959-1969. Now Marlin only made 1200 of 44 dlm between 1963-1964.

    Down to 600 grit and waiting on a buttplate and front site hood and this one will be wrapped up. 20200222_160159.jpg 20200222_160222.jpg 20200222_160244.jpg 20200222_165117.jpg 20200222_170110.jpg

    Well here is the finished product. 5 coats of shellac and there you have it. I ended up having to order an oversized buttstock and had to shape it down to size because I just couldnt find an original. 20200307_151900.jpg 20200307_151922.jpg 20200307_151927.jpg 20200307_151957.jpg 20200307_152022.jpg
