I would like a few answers on what yall think about this I was planning on buying my old granddad a cheaper 22 for christmas that has an engraved stock for his company McDonald Land Surveying in Jackson and I was planning on getting the seal of his company engraved in the stock so he can hang it in his office above the fireplace I thought this would be a good present since he has a few pistols but no rifles so I would like to get some serious feedback from yall so I can have enough time to customize the rifle like I want it for him and get a guy I know to laser engrave the stock so any comments will be greatly appreciated.

I know you said cheaper, but the 39 gets my vote. Lever actions are sexy!

Second choice would be the 915y. It is much cheaper.

Yeah but I see the Marlins at academy for 100 bucks and plus another 20 bucks to get it engraved and then do what I want to with it I just dont want to go over 150 on this gun I just want something plain and simple for him because hes getting over the hill you know I dont want to spend a whole lot of money but I love that man more than you know its just that I dont want to spend a lot.

Ya, but who is to say it won't stay in the family? You may end up passing it to your children. You never know. I understand tight money, but I would probably go overboard just because it would ber something special. Just make sure you post some pics, whatever you decide. :D

I'm refinishing a Marlin 22 right now.

I added a Walnut stock from Numrich's and am putting a 2007 Walking Liberty Silver dollar in the stock, (year of my son's birth), then I'm having his name put on the leather sling. top it off with a BSA sweet 22 scope.

I'm almost done. Going to be his first rifle.

Before:






Current:

That Just Gave me a great Idea I am a big coin collector so I might put a quarter with the year of his birth in it also I think it would be really really cool. That with the engraving should be right around my pricerange for him. What ill do is just get a plain ole quarter from his birth year and polish it so I dont have to put my really valuable uncirculated ones in there. Sounds like a plan to me. Thanks 4runner.

Joe I have a henry lever but I want to keep that you know he isnt the gun type guy but he has a few and this is just a thing that would be centimental because I dont want to spend too much money because Im gonna set in the coin and im gonna get it ingraved and everything and I think he would like it just the same as any lever action or semi auto rifle.

The stocks that Numrichs sells can be purchased with the cutout. It's about the size of a half dollar exactly.

I used a dremmel to enlarge the one on mine to the size of a silver dollar.

Or I put one of the silver dollars I have in the stock to commemorate the gift like 2010 silver dollar. And then get the engraving and stuff done.
