    I am not aware of Marlin ever supplying model 90's with ribbed barrels except perhaps on presentation guns, but anything is possible.

    Simmons and PolyChoke, possibly others, installed aftermarket ribs on Model 90's, so it might be possible that they removed the matting before attaching the rib. Some Simmons ribs were marked with the company name. Maybe PolyChoke also marked their ribs.

    i have a very early 12 ga Sears Ranger 103.1 (Model 90) that does not have matting on the topbarrel. It also has the first generation forearm, and the top lever is attached to the frame with a visible flat head screw.

    Use a magnifying lens and inspect the area of barrels to locate the stamping of the choking use.

    Chack out the website : www16ga.com for additional sources of information

    I have a 103-1 with a 3 digit serial#, 26”barrel, stock has a pointer and quail carving. Any info you may have acquired?

    I have never seen a production Ranger 103-1 (or any Model 90) with a carving on the stock. It is possible that a previous owner customized the stock.

    As I mentioned in an earlier post, 1939 and 1940 Model 90’s had a bird dog scene stamped on the frame. However, I think the 103-1 was likely made earlier than that, especially if it has the first generation forearm ( only the top half of the forearm wood mates with the frame) and the top lever is attached to the frame with a visible flat head screw.
