I was rummaging thru some of my old marlin pictures and came across these,1881 32-40 with engraving and fancy wood its the one i need the forearm tip for. my question is what is the wood? english walnut? or circassion (SP) walnut?
Old Marlin catalogs referred to that as "Circassian walnut", which is English Walnut. The high end walnut stocks on early Marlins make me weak in the knees! Seems 1881's had some of the finest high grade wood!
So, Circassian walnut and English walnut is one and the same ??? , well thats good to know! ;D i think the 1881 marlins are underated in value, i only have this one but would like one in 45-70 some day. Don
