This is a newly acquired NIB 1995 444S, it has an inspectors card. This person did his job, back in the day, the rifle is flawless. Been looking for a good 444 for awhile found this at a local gun show for $600.00. More than I've ever paid for a Marlin, but it was well worth it. Plan to shoot it, and hunt it some, along with rifle came four boxes of loaded Hornady 265 flat points, which I understand is a good game load. The original price of the rifle was on the box, $351.00, those were the days.
