I was looking for a .22lr carbine to go match my M1 Carbine when someone mentioned a Marlin 99M1. I've never seen one. Anyone know anything about them? Common? Rare?
They are common and were made in two variations a clip fed version and a tube magazine fed version. They are common and not hard to find I have actually owned several of each type over the past few years. Pricing is in the $100-$225 range I paid $250 for one but it had the original box and papers with it(Looked new in the box). Clips are easy to find as Marlin used the same basic frame for several versions of semi-automatic .22 caliber rifles. Good Luck looking for one.
The other version is the 989-M2, clip-fed
A firearm should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.

Aside from condition,the biggest thing to look for ,is to make certain the rear sight is present.It clamps onto the scope grooves and a lot have been removed to mount a scope and lost.Originals are scarce and Expensive
Yes I saw the date on the original post but thought this might help future searchers.
Thanks Mudpuppy, your plan worked.
