Nice looking rifle! The model 10/100/101 are pretty much the same rifles, minus the stocks, from the research I've done and the catalogs I have.View attachment 814041
I have a 1977 Glenfield model 10 that I've had since I was 4 (about 30 years). It wears a El Paso Weaver 4X that I purchased several years ago off this forum from Gaterskiner. Shoots good with Remington golden saber's. Trigger is nice and broke in at 2 1/4 lbs.
That's a very nice looking 101! I'd say it was worth the trip too. I don't have a birth year Marlin yet (67). My 101 is my brother's birth year (66). The previous owners of my 101 either used it with a scope, or didn't shoot it much with iron sights. I couldn't believe how far off the iron sights were. I'm glad it was still at my LGS when I decided to buy it.That is a nice 101, they are nice little 22's. A guy on this forum turned me on to this 1959 Deluxe 101 last year. It called a Crown Prince, had to drive 6 hour round trip to Buy it. Its my only birth year Marlin I own so it was worth the trip to me.
