In an earlier posting (http://marlinowners.com/forums/index...c,68339.0.html) about a Vintage .22 auto,there were some nice photos of the Marlin A1 in its 1st variation. Forum member Schtoolee also posted some ads for the A1. Here are some photos and a 1940's ad for the "new" and improved Marlin A1C - A1DL

Pictured side by side ,one of my Marlin A1's 1st var. and the Marlin A1DL 2cd var.

Schtoolee,do you happen to have any more ads/catalog pages showing the Marlin A1C-A1DL ??
