This Marlin is a .22 caliber rifle with very short ( 16" ) barrel AND dual sighting ( buckhorn and peep ). Actually we could have said 3-way sighting with buckhorn, triangle, or peep. I have been advised by the Marlin Firearms Collectors Association that factory records do indicate that it was shipped from the Marlin factory with a 16 inch round barrel. It was shipped the first time on April 19, 1905 and again pm July 21, 1905 although there are no records to indicate what the return or reshipment was about. Full barrel magazine feed. This rifle appears to be in excellent condition. If fired use low or standard velocity but first have a gunsmith approve this use. Excellent markings throughout with 1878, 1889, 1890, and 1892 patent dates on the barrel. Serial Number 310532. Note that there is a chip at the butt end of the stock ( see picture ), otherwise no substantial defects are known.
