Re: 32 special

1960 Marlin 336 SC .32Spl. is all I hunt with not much blueing left on the receiver but the action is like butter you can work it with one finger.

Re: H&R 929 barrel ??

They both shoot ok you can hit tin cans with them at 20 feet can't complain with the fixed sights that are on them.

I don't shoot the 929 much and I mostly use the 949 with snake shot in it.

I had a 999 and I couldn't hit the side of a barn from the inside with it.
