    Marlin 55 Bolt Shotgun

    Hello All,

    I just purchased a clean model 55. Very little rust near the adjustable choke.

    I have not been able to shoot her yet...

    Can anyone tell me anything about this gun?

    Does it look anything like this one on Gun Broker? This one started at $265.00 with 13 + hours left and no reserve.

    The Marlin Model 55 is a large, bolt-action, series of shotguns. It was produced in 20, 16, 12 and 10 gauge at various times in its production history.[1] It features a full-choke and a thumb safety. The shotgun shells are fed via a two-round, detachable, box magazine.

    There were a few different models over the years: The basic shotgun had a 28" barrel with a Micro-Choke adjustable choke, the Goose Gun had a 36" barrel and there was a shorter Brush Gun for slug hunting, although I don't know the barrel length off-hand. I bought the standard model 12 Ga. in 1968 and still have it; I bought it thorough an executive at the plant whose son was in my Boy Scout Troop. It was suppose to be a 3" magnum, but it doesn't say so on the barrel-I never shot 3" shells out of it, but that was because I was too cheap.

    I have one, the 12 guage "Goose Gun" with the 36" Barrel. I got lucky and picked mine up for only $75. Came with one clip, and found anouther at a gun shop in the clearance bin. My dad nick-named mine "AT&T" "Reach out and touch something"
