Barenjager, thanks for the informative post.
So if I understand correctly, this gun loads through a tube in the buttstock, is that correct? How is it for taking down and cleaning? My impression is that it could be a maintenance nightmare, and complicated to manufacture. I don't know, that's just my impression.
Incidentally, if you're interested, I found this post in another forum: http://www.marlin-collectors.com/for...pic.php?p=7598
Thanks for sharing.
