The very first gun I bought as a kid back in 1969 was a Marlin model 80. If I remember correctly I paid around $10 for it back then as a used firearm. It has the micro-groove rifling and it's very accurate. This particular gun has no serial number and I'm trying to find out how old it may be. Does anyone know the date range (beginning/end) when this model was being manufactured?

Microgroove rifling was introduced in 1953 and serial numbers started in 1968 so your gun was made somewhere in that time frame. If you could post a few pictures it would help to pin it down more closely.
