    this is a nice marlin i picked up for deer season .

    it came with a foggy swift scope that wouldnt hit a plate at 35 yds. took it off and shot consistent 2 in. groups with the iron sights . dropped the elevation a notch and drilled a coke can in the 1st attempt at 35 . gonna be a fine brush gun for yrs to come .

    the gun is super smooth as fast as i can work it. however , i did take it apart , oil it good , and stretch a few springs . the lever was dropping slightly after shooting . did it a world of good . its stays much better now.
    the micro grooves are pretty visible in the barrel , the brass tip on the iron sight was tarnished in black.. meaning no one bothered to try the iron sights for a long time . the ghost ring prevented the black tip from being visible enough to shoot. i had to sand it clean to see it reflect . now , its a real good shootin gun . a scope could aid with 100 plus yd shots . it looks to be deserving based on the shots already fired . . perhaps a nikon in the future.

    it has the original walnut butt stock and the gold plated trigger . the bluing is about 85 % i think . only place its worn much at all is on the barrel in the area of the makers marks from being handled for over 50 yrs .

    the serial # beginning with a w indicates its a 1963... same as me. its the jm model which im learning is top of the line. its fit , finish , design , and structural make up were far better , dare i say than the winchesters of that same pre 64 era . features like marlins micro groove barrel and side eject design far exceeds winchesters top eject system . it also has the beautiful pistol grip stock that was standard on them. this type of gun is certainly gaining in value . these guns were built tough in performance and beautiful in appearance .

    the future is looking really bright for these dolls . wish we could post more pics . its far better than these few appear . these are for identification purposes mostly.
    sweeettt !

      They dont make them like anymore, these days it's all cast & MIM , I like the quality of the older guns fro the 1960's

      That is a real beauty whyatt, and like the earlier comment, they don't make 'em like this any more!
      I have a 1960's air rifle, a Webley MK3, built by hand and all solid steel. I would post it but can't think which category to put it...
