Marlin did not make any full on Carbines but they did make barrels

You got it. That is exactly the correct facts. It is also what I was trying to indicate.

In that conversation, I was playing stupid and let him correct me. In the alternative, I was giving him a chance to launch off into a made up story about his rare Marlin carbine, should he have wished to go that far BS'ing us.

Sometimes people tell you false things just to see what you know or what you are willing to correct or what else you are willing to lie about. Consider it an interrogation technique that does not alert the BS'er. Alles Klar??

We have a Gunshop here in town that is run by the Owner and his Nephew. They are both 2 A -holes. He has tons of old Military stuff and WWII Rifles!!! He used to buy all the old WWII Veterans War trophies off of them for a couple pennies on the dollar, back in the day. He was smart, his Gun shop is up the street from 2 taverns. The Old Vets would bring their stuff to him and sell it for beer money!!! Now he's getting top dollar for this stuff. He and his Nephew greets customers with " What the F--k do you want?? If your not buying , don't waste my time!!! If you want something , give me a yell, I'll be in my office!!! He lies about his guns all the time too. He told me one time that a Lockbar sight needed a special tool to unlock the sight to adjust it!!! He sold a HRA Garand to a guy one time because the guy said it had to be in WWII since the stock was beat up on it and he told the guy he was right!!!I haven't been in his shop for 3 yrs this month because of his lying and cheating people!!!
