    Also the lower tang will be curved for pistol grip and straight for the straight stock.

    the lever is curved and I am hoping that means pistol grip. I have another gun with the straight stock and I don't like the way it feels.

    db81, welcome to MO! From the way you describe your Marlin I'd say it has a pistol grip stock. You might be able to purchase one from Marlin/Remington or check out Macon gunstocks in Lincoln, Mo. They do have a website with pictures of stocks for all the Marlins and the pictures will make you drool. Again, welcome and enjoy yourself here, John.
    Just keep on keeping on.

    Re: how to tell what stock

    Thank you all. I got the gun from my uncle when he moved to tailand and could not take his guns. I have been wanting one for a long time and now I cannot wait to get a chance to take it out and shoot it. Now all I need to do is order the stock and find someone willing to teach and take me dear hunting. Have always wanted to do that as well.
