I finally registered after lurking around for a while. This looks like the best of the Marlintalk spawns. I did a search on ebay for Marlin and found a 1980 firearms catalog. It went for 3 bucks and is in absolutely pristine shape. It has all the centerfire,rimfire, and shotgun offerings of the year and some wild game recipes. Last year I bought a 1980 M-375 and wanted its catalog to go with it. Very cool find. Anybody else have these, there were a few other years available?

260Brian,

Welcome aboard.

That is actually a pretty neat idea to have a catalog of the same year as your gun. I saw one of a 1950's circa some time back on Ebay. That kinda makes me want to find a 1970 edition.

Good score, 260Brian. I got a 1972 one from ebay to go with my '72 model 1895. It somehow added a little to the pleasure of acquiring the rifle. Hope you enjoy yours.

I need top get a lot more Marlins! I have every catalog from WWII to present, plus a couple dozen from 1896-WWII. I'm missing a lot of guns!

I bought a 1980 catalog, a sling, and an original press release/photo of the M375 from Don Anderson of Marlin Collectors fame. Very nice gentleman with some first rate memorablia.

Welcome Brian. Glad you like the place. We tend to think it is the best of the "replacement boards " but then we may be a little partial.

I was just wondering is the handle 260 Brian or is it 26 O'Brian?

Its 260Brian as in .260 Remington. I have been Brian S on Jesseshunting.com for 3 years and It wasn't available on Gunbroker or some other shooting site so I started using 260Brian and any other new sign-ons so I could keep my log in info easy to remember. Guess it doesn't work so good on a lever cartridge site. :wink:

I question was just curiosity as when the number 0 or letter O are used I have trouble telling them apart. Welcome aboard. Randy
