    Looking at a Marlin Model 25R .22LR bolt action. Need some Help

    I ran across this add in a local forum that read. "Marlin Model 25R .22LR bolt action, with micro-groove barrel. SWEET little shooter that is seriously accurate, comes with one mag. $125."

    I have never owned a 22, and do not know much about them. Can any of you briefly educate me on this model, and do you think it is a good buy? I email the gentleman to get the year on it, and the photo of it looks real nice.

    Here's the Serial# 075798xx

    Thank you.

    Well Tilden....I think it's a 1993 Model and from what I've read over at at Rimfire Central they are a very accurate rifle. The Model 25 started life in 1979 as the Glenfield Model 25 and ended in 1982 when it became the Marlin Model 25 from 1983 to date, Brophy's book notes that these were promotional models, yours should have a birch stock with no swivels and it had a black, instead of chrome trigger guard. I can't tell how many rounds the clip holds, probably 7-10 would be my guess. Mr fixit

    Around here (swVa.) almost any 22 safe to shoot will bring $100.00 or more at a yard sale/flea market,even old single shots if not broken or rusted to bad.A good clean model 25 would bring $150. easily considering there are no tax,shipping or registration fees involved.

    Hey Dave, I was hoping you'd answer this. As you can see I'm looking to expand my collection. Your old one is doing good, but thought I'd get something to practice more, and use less expensive ammo.

    I just ordered a couple of your recommended Marlin slings, so the lack of swivels is a concern. Is it difficult to install them?


    Thanks Mudpuppey

    I have a 25N that is so accurate I had a trigger job done on it to make it even better. It takes a seven round magazine, but the ten round magazine, part #707135 fits it as well. It's the same magazine that fits the model 795.

    Here's a link for you Tilden: https://www.marlinowners.com/forums/i...,60201.15.html
    there is always the option of a tube hanger which basically clamps on to the mag tube. I pointed out the cut down screw in the thread, this might at some point give way and pull out, I suspect you would have to do a little work, but you could use a t-nut the size of a machine thread swivel, the T-nut would have to be inset into the forearm i think. Some cutting/filing will most likely be in order.
    Here's a for instance:

    I would go to the hardware store and get T-nut as they have prongs to help seat them into the wood which prevents them from spinning. Looks like these: http://t-nut.com/

    Brian, I have a Model 25, do you think I can use the 10-round mags you just mentioned?
    Thanks!

    I just checked a schematic at the Numrich site, and it is as I suspected. When Marlin switched from the model 25 to the model 25N, they changed to a different magazine configuration, so magazines that will fit in the 25N will not fit in the 25 and vice versa. Sorry to disappoint you.
