Pic' of the weapon crime

Post by Lamelune » Sun Mar 11, 2012 12:43 pm

Do you know where I can find a photo of the the rifle ? It should be a photo taken by the police on the crime scene.

This must be the real rifle (Marlin) which was used by Ronnie to kill his entire family.

The only one I seen was of the rifle sitting on the Bulkhead after the divers recovered it from the water, I believe I seen the rifle being held by one of the cops that arrested Butchie in a documentary.

Anyway, 336C Marlin Rifles are a dime a dozen, they haven't really changed in 60 years... :)

... And why "must" it be the rifle that was used to kill his whole family?? Anyway, there is a B&W pic in the book High Hopes by Gerard Sullivan if ya wanna see it.

And here's mine, 1958 Marlin 336 RC .35 Remington... although ten years older than Butchies, looks as good as it did in the 50's, like new... ;)

Yep anytime! Should be a Deer stopper in November... I would never have bought this rifle because Butchie "used" it, but the more I read about this rifle and more importantly the .35 Remington, the more I found out, these are an amazing little Bullet/Rifle Combo and for close fast shooting will put meat on the table every year, 3" high at 100yds and I'm good for anything from 0 - 175yds... 175 being the farthest I would try with this light lil rifle... And if I gotta shoot a lil farther I got my 65' Winchester Model 100 for field work... :)

I know I know... I like the old Oddball(classic) rifles... but I got rid of all my Magnums and decided the bruised shoulder, High FPS and flatter shooting specs on paper ain't worth it... The way I hunt now, mostly with hounds is up close and fast... Gets the old heart pumping and the lead flying... :)

I like the old military rifles myself. In fact recently I picked
up a nice Mauser rather cheap. Someone had ruined it by
drilling the barrel to accept a scope rail, not to mention it
was filthy.

I bought it, brought it home and gave it some tender loving
care. She cleaned up beautifully! I put a nice scope on it and
took it out to fire.

She kicks like a mule!! Ill either have to get a nice shoulder pad
or a muzzle brake. But she fires wonderfully and damned loud too!!

The action is very smooth and the bore is like a mirror. Only problem
though is the scope in relation to the bolt. I cannot use the safety. I will
have to get a different design scope. For instance, a scope is made to
sit right where the blade sight is farther up on t he rifle. One of those would
be ideal. Then I can use the scope onmy Enfield:)

Heh heh I just sold my my M-305(M14-M21 chinese clone) to get my model 100, battle rifles are nice but except for the later years, SKS, AK-47, M-16 they were heavy and awkward, great for pointing and shooting but bad for MOA's... :)

Unless we're talking the Swedish Mauser 6.5x55 M96/M98... Those things are built like swiss watches, sniper deadly.

i have some more work to do on my Mauser (K98) before I can dial
it in but I am anxious to see the results:)

About the m-14 clone, I would like to have one of those! In all honesty
I would rather have an original M--14 but that would be hard to come by.

How much did you get for yours?

Well I fired 2 boxes of shells through it and sold it for $350.00 it was the Synthetic stock and came with both 10/5rnd clips and sling.

You could always get the M-21 but at $1500.00 US, they're not much better than the clones today, China has really stepped up their game with the Norincos, some would say the reciever is better than the American version...

They're cheap and legal up here in Canada! :)

Well you can come up here and I'll sell you one, getting across the border is all you, too bad they're illegal down South... :(

I don't get it, the Chinese Reverse engineer the rifle and the states outlaws them, I get that... But then Springfield sells them all their old Machining tools, dies etc... to make them properly and their still banned... whaaaaaat?

makes no sense...
