Marlin 56 from 1955 (no serial number)
Marlin 56 from 1955 (with serial number)
Marlin 39A from 1979
Just a hunch, MattNH, but I'm guessing you're a fan of the Marlin brand. I have 2 lever action Marlins in .35 Rem manufactured in the '70's. Always like the triggers on those.
Don’t currently own a Marlin, but want a Guide Gun or GBL in 45-70. Great-lookin’ lever guns. Love the GBL’s big loop, pistol grip, and ammo capacity.
My first real (not milsurp) rifle was a 336 in 35 Remington. The first Rifle I bought after I lost my firearms in a house fire was a 1895G in 450 Marlin. Unfortunately I have neither now. The first one lost in the fire, the second one sold to pay medical bills. I liked those rifles though.
I want a 336 XLR. I'm just leary of purchasing one since Remington took over what with the quality control issues. But Remington owned up to the issues and claim they fixed them. My nephew recently bought a 1895 in 45-70. By all accounts it is a very nice rifle. I have not seen it yet, but just maybe Marlin/Remington has it right. Might be time to take the plunge.
What is it with all the guns getting smaller? Glad I got mine when they still made them for people over 5 ft tall. After all that's why I have the recoil pad is to extend the length of the stock another 1/2 inch to make it comfortable. ;-)
How do you like your GBL? It’s just such an awesome-looking carbine.
Great-looking rifle, sir. Color me jealous.
Model 1894 FG in 41 mag
Very Nice Gentlemen...
I own a Marlin Model 80C Bolt Action and a Marlin Model 60 Semi-Auto...But, no Marlin lever actions as of yet !!
A friend offered me a JM marked 41 mag for a whole lot of money. I thought he had lost his marbles. I looked them up and they are.......worth a whole lot of money!
Yes, they are like hens teeth. Mine has had less than 10 rounds through it. Bought it new back in the 90's when they did the small run of them.
Back when I was shooting the 41Mag, I owned the Marlin to go with me Blackhawk. Like to many other guns they got lost in trades.:Angie:
I have a Blackhawk in 41 mag also. Made in 86 with the 6 1/2" barrel.
I have never seen an inaccurate 41Mag, even the one I had with a bent sight was a tac driver.(Bent for my eyes).:smilie flag:
There are some fine rifles above this post. This was the Marlin lever rimfire thread, but what the hell .... here are my other 2
Marlin 1894 Carbine in .357 Magnum, vintage 1979 with a Skinner sight
Marlin 336 in .30-30, vintage 1976
Yea...funny how threads go off the rails around here Matt...
You'll get use to it...
Oh I'm not complaining, the more pictures and discussion of Marlin levers the better
I did not notice it was in the rim fire section until you mentioned it. Still, a good subject to discuss.
Since it is the rim fire thread, I own a 39A with four digit serial number that is a tac driver. The serial number has a Y prefix so it would be made in1964.
Here is mine:
Marlin Golden 59-A Manufactured in 1963
