#4 Perfection

Post by candlestick » Sun Dec 03, 2006 2:53 pm

Hi all, I would like to present my newest addition to my collection. Fresh from the gun show in Tulsa.

Just put on Kelley sights from Buffalo Arms and plan to fire it up next week weather permitting.

Hi Ken,
Very nice indeed! Is that one of the new Cody Ballards? I see they use a DST, unlike the originals that were single trigger.
What caliber is it?
I have a early Marlin Ballard #4 Perfection in .45-70, with 34" half octagon barrel. Ballards are a real favorite of mine!

Marlinman93,

Yes, it is a new Cody Ballard. The gentleman that I purchased it from said it was from 1998.

It's a 45-70 also with a 30" barrel.

I too like the lines of the Ballards. Takes you back in time. If there ever was a time machine, it must have looked like these!

Yep, Ballards are very cool! Just wish they weren't so darn spendy!
