just me- i probably wouldn't on a lever marlin, but if i had
a rifle that i knew for a fact that the base wasn't coming off
for any reason, i wouldn't hesitate to use the strongest adhesive
i could find including JB. the concept of a rock solid mounting
is sound, but not on something you don't intend to keep until death.
i mostly use red loctite on my bases and rings.
i have an identical 1894 44 that will get a scope and base as
soon as i can afford a quality one. it'll get red loctite most likely
as far as re-selling something, i'd agree. no permanent alterations
and for sure no hidden nothing. very unethical.
i never understood these folks who make semi-permanent alterations
to something (anything) then turn right around and try to sell it.
The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.
Honor the Texas flag;I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas,
one state under God, one and indivisible.
