    Thanks for your prompt reply to my raspy trigger question. My
    thinking was that since the the firing pin assembly weighs several
    ounces, a heavy spring would be needed to give any kind of decent
    lock time. I have polished the parts I feel comfortable with
    removing without much improvement.

    I understand the 99 was submitted to the US Army for trials but
    failed the dust and mud part. Anyway, the design is unique, and I
    really like that rotary magazine

    I also like the cartridge counter...nice to glance at it and see how many are left. Right now, I'm debating on replacing the ugly monte carlo with a straight stock (got a nice one from Boyds) and going to open or tang sights. It would sure carry and balance better without the scope. On the other hand, my 65 year old eyes don't pick up the irons as well any more.

    They're great shooters that's for sure. I've got a few of these residing in the safe.

    I have never figured out why Marlin didn't adopt this design in lou of special ammo. I figure the patents have expired a long time ago.
