    A top eject Marlin? You got me. Might the caliber be 44-40? Waiting to hear from the pros. It's a beautiful rifle!

    Sure looks like an 1888 in 44-40. And a beauty it is! Just beautiful. You're a fortunate fella with such a rifle. Thanks for sharing such a nice one.

    1888 in .44-40 or .44WCF. Last of the top ejects, the 1889 was the first side eject. Only about 4800 1889's ever made, also in .38-40 and .32-20. You have a rare one that looks like a museum piece!!
    Congrats!!

    Welcome from SW Ohio.

    That is a simply gorgeous rifle. And it's in great shape. I've not seen one like it before.

    Is is old or a modern repro? I can't tell from the pictures.
