Description

Seller's Description:
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.

  Questions from GunAuction.com Users...
(Public)   
    Q:  How does the bore look? 10/16/2007
        A:  I don't have any kind of special bore scope but when I hold up the barrel to the light I can see pretty good. The rifling is clearly visible and is sharp ( to me ). On the muzzle end I can see tooling marks between the lands ( or is that in the lands ? ) On the breech end I think that I can see some pitting but am not sure of that. I can clearly see where the rifling begins from that end. To me it is very good. I would go shoot it in a heartbeat ( with std. vel.) and expect it to be accurate, but haven't shot it in many years since buying it from my wife's uncle, (about 30 years ago) W.G.Conley, now deceased, who was a Winchester collector in Ozark, Arkansas. 10/16/2007

    Q:  Hi, is the bluing or wood finish all original or has it been "added to" Is the chip at the stock end just in the butt plate or in the wood also, (tuff to see from the picture) please email or call my house 715 410-8819, western Wisc.) thanks fred 10/20/2007
        A:  I don't think that any kind of finish has been added to the original finishes, either wood or metal. There is a (small) chip out of the wood and the buttplate but is not too noticeable. 10/20/2007
