Marlin Model 512 Slugmaster, which was first produced in 1994. Modeled after the company’s long-standing Model 55 models, the most famous of which is the 36-inch barreled Goose Gun, the 512 features a 21-inch fully rifled (one turn in 28 inches) barrel and two-shot detachable-box magazine with rifle sights, capable of firing 2-3/4" and 3" shells. The 8.5-pound gun is built on a checkered birch stock. The Marlin features a shotgun bolt, not a beefed-up rifle bolt. Neither bolt is front-locking, rather leaving the bolt handle to cam into a receiver slot and lock the action. The Marlin bolt is mounted well forward, Mannlicher style, and notches in a slot in the receiver top, necessitating a side scope mount (Weaver 10M), which is included. A heavy recoil lug is set between the receiver and barrel into a recess in the stock. A Simmons Blazer 3 x 9 variable scope is included, however, the sight picture is a little blurred from 5 to 9 power, swivel studs installed, two round clip included. Stock shows some finish wear around wrist, trigger guard shows some finish wear, rear sight needs adjustment, front sight is good, finish on barrel and action is good. No problem with feeding the three-inchers. This gun shoots like a laser.
