I looked at one of these in a local shop a couple of weeks ago. Sure was short, handy, and lite as a feather. Recoil might be interesting. The price tag of $639.00 convinced me it was not for me and that I should hold out for an unported 1895GS which is about $200 less in my area.
Please update your post as I would be interested to know how that "carbine" shoots, especially the recoil :!:
By the way, I was through your home town 3 years ago on the way to western Ontario for a Moose hunt. Munising really impressed me, beautiful area.
Good luck with your new Marlin, I'm sure you'll love it
small delay in delivery the man that was selling me the gun dropped dead from a stroke. He was only 47 years old. His wife called and while in tears told me that the gun would be shipped next week. I guess you just never know. If you ever get up this way again drop me a line and we'll take the linebaughs out and do some playing.
