I purchased this rifle from a local gentleman in 2013. It has not been fired since I have owned it. It has the JM roll mark everyone seems to be looking for. Also, it does not a cross-bolt safety. This is a beautiful older rifle that is in great condition!
Several photos are attached to illustrate the rifle’s condition. If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to ask.
Feeding and function are perfect on SAAMI-spec rounds; I just cycled it with 4 rounds of Hornady 325gr FTX’s and Garrett 540gr Hardcast. The added length of the Hornady’s occasionally caused a hickup when the carrier tried to lift them to the chamber. This can be remedied if desired.
While this rifle is being sold as-is, I would be willing to modify/build it into a custom project if you desire. Please let me know if you are interested and we can discuss your options. I will do my best to work a discount into the deal.
This rifle will be shipped to your FFL in an inexpensive hard case, inside of a cardboard sleeve. Since Marlin stocks have a habit of breaking at the wrist in-transit, this will hopefully prevent that. It will also be insured for full value. The cost will be approximately $100 depending on your location.
Payment methods accepted are personal check, money order, Cashier’s check, cash, etc. Credit cards are also accepted with a 4% fee.
I will wait two weeks before publishing this ad in the For Sale section of the web page, or until offering it to the general public.
Please do not hesitate to holler if you have questions, or require additional information.
