Swapped a mini 30 for this lovely pair at a recent gun show. They are a marlin 94 in 44 mag and a TC contender in 223. I know absolutely nothing about the contender, but I have always been intrigued by the setup. Shot a few through it and it is a dream! any input to a newbie is greatly appreciated. currently doing some work on the stock. It is a right handed thumb hole and I'm a lefty so changes have to be made!
