    Marlin 989-M2

    I was visiting a Chicago area gunshop and spotted what at first looked like an M1 carbine, it turned out to be a Marlin 989-M2. What a neat little carbine, I can't believe Marlin discontinued these. It came with a vintage Weaver 4X that I just replaced with a BSA 4X with a 1" tube. I can't say enough about this handy, accurate and just fun gun. It is in 99% condition and I paid a whopping $120 for it. The action appears to be the same as a model 60, it's cut down to carbine length and has a handguard thereby replicating the look of an M1.

    I did get the rear sight with it which has to be removed from the grooved reciever to mount a scope. I'd love to post s ome photos for you guys but it's not as easy on this site as other where you just click on Manage Attachments.

    I have one of those guns too, My brother picked it up at a yard sale for $50!! It stopped working so he gave it to me, and I've since went through it... Replaced a few springs, screws, smoothed up the action, and rebent the magazines. It works good now! Hope you enjoy it, I sure like MINE!!

    Maverick, Yes that's it, what a great little carbine. It's the perfect 22 I think. I sent you an email with pics of mine.
