buddy, you just asked my question for me. A friend of mine who I hunt/shoot with knows of my Marlin sickness and called me the other night and said "A boy I know is out here with a Marlin single shot break action for $100" me"I had no idea such existed but I got cash in my wallet send him my way" Needless to say I procured said shotgun for $100. I thought it was just an H&R when he got it out of his car. But sure enough it says Marlin model 200. Mine's a 12 gauge with mod. choke. The reciever has some surface rust and a couple nicks in the forearm but otherwise is in very very nice tight shape. Has a real nice walnut stock on it as well.
