She isn't chinese, this is Thailand and the language is Thai...you all missed the whole point of this..although,It is good to know that you all feel the same as I do about having to modify every firearm you shoot...Damn Chinese infiltration is everywhere, resist the urge to buy their crap
I thought the language and company was chinese but their products are made in Vietnam. You’re entitled to your point but the point I was making was different then yours, mine was buy American, not Vietnamese or especially chinese. We do agree on silly mods.She isn't chinese, this is Thailand and the language is Thai...you all missed the whole point of this..although,It is good to know that you all feel the same as I do about having to modify every firearm you shoot...
Humorous anecdote, recently a gent brought a Marlin 1895 to me with an unfired round in the chamber. Seems as I have reported in the past, "why would anyone want to buy a firearm that there isn't ammo available." This gent went on line and bought some ammo from a "custom reloader". The CRer loaded this ammo with a blunt nosed 500 gr bullet of the likes of a Buffalo Bore may be a comparison. The contour of the ejection port is tapered and the blunt nosed round would not eject. My quick and dirty solution was to fire the round so the brass would eject. "Jesus H Christo!" that round kicked like the last .458 500 gr solid I had fired 10 years ago!!I think a lot of this kind of crap is done because of video games. My youngest son was talking about lever guns a few years back, and was telling me of how they "added tactical stuff to a lever gun" in the games.
I told him that it was obvious the nerds designing these games were NOT real gun people,, but only internet warriors w/o any real world experience in such things.
I'd like to hand a Marlin 45-70 to a nerd like that,, w/o any crap on it & tell him; "Fire this thing as fast as you can!" I bet he would get his eyes opened REAL quick! (After he got his butt kicked! )
I don't know if anything she is displaying is made in China. She is not Chinese and Siam is not Chinese. She shoots in competitions such as Jerry Michelek does. Of course Jerry is the Master but from Thailand she has a great reputation. Most of what she displays and shoots is firearms from the U.S.Damn Chinese infiltration is everywhere, resist the urge to buy their crap
In Thailand and a few other Asian countries, one such is the Philippines they shoot competitions with semi-auto AR type plasticated rifles and Semi-auto pistols mostly 9mm...and 9mm semi-auto rifles same as we do here...and modern plasticated shotguns also get into the act. They do take their competitions seriously as do we.I understand that semi-automatics are verboten in some areas, as well as certain cartridges, so a lever action in a pistol caliber may be the best bet for someone who wants a rapid firing long gun with decent capacity in a caliber suitable for personal defense or hunting. And it is an excellent choice.
But many of the mods on the one in the vid actually detract from what makes the Marlin such an excellent choice. It makes it less ambidextrous, heavier, and destroys the lovely slim ergonomics that allow lever actions to feel like an extension of the shooter's body. Ruins the "pointability".
I'd accept a synthetic stock with some adjustability and a good recoil pad, as well as a red dot (preferably a micro unit that co-witnesses with the open sights), and a small tactical light as being the maximum needed to turn a handgun-caliber lever action into a serious personal defense firearm. An elastic cartridge holder on the buttstock would be an okay addition as well.
Just my 2¢...
