I woke up one day a few weeks ago and decided I had to fill my void on guns with a wish list item. Marlin 338 express. I found one with only only 56 rounds in it. I posted pics of it two weeks ago. Walnut and blued. Gorgeous. BUT, I really wanted a stainless/ laminated MXLR. So I couldn’t sleep. As you know the good ones are hard to come by. Well I had to get one. Found a brand new never fired JM. Got a scout scope from Schmalts. Installed it all today. Here she is. I went from just a wish list to 2. Can’t wait to shoot it.
