Marlin 25N Restoration

  1. I got this rusty and dusty 25N for free. It needed serious TLC.

    I sanded the stock bare, stained it a mahogany finish and sealed it with a flat spar urethane. Took steel wool to the metal and hit it with Outer's gun blue. Added an old scope I had laying around.

    Looks and works great.
     
  2. That looks great. A 25N was the first gun I shot. My dad gave it to me a few years ago. I have put more rounds through it than I could count with a calculator. always stayed accurate. Love the gun, and you cant beat the price. new models don't come with those nice stocks and quality for the price these days.

    Good job, nice looking 22 rifle.
     
  5. Have any groups you shot from it?

    Some day i will have to go out and really try some tight groups at 100 yards with mine.

    No one ever talks about the old marlins being real accurate, but i Haven't missed much with it.
