I have a chance to purchase this rifle but I can't seem to pin down what it's worth. Can anyone tell me what model it is? The barrel is stamped "The Marlin Firearms Corporation New Haven, Conn. U.S.A. -Patented-", no model number present. It is chambered for .22 S-L-LR.

My fascination with Marlin rifles is a recent development, so I am by far not an expert. I have seen quite a few, though, and own a couple of Model 80's. I have never seen a Marlin with finger grooves like this. The knob at the end of the forestock is also new to me. I have a feeling that the stock is not an original match to the rest of the gun, but as I said, I am still pretty green.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Didn't get a chance to check the function, somebody wanted it a little more than me at auction. If I run across another I'll split it with you. :biggrin:

So what did the buyer have to pay? Just wondering in comparison to other brand name older singleshots.

It went for $165. I was bidding online, just too rich for me when you add an arm for internet bids plus the leg for shipping/transfer. It was an uncommon model in good shape but it was still probably a good pass considering the person paid 25%+ less than I would have by buying it onsite. I'll keep my eye out, though, that model has an interesting look and is different from the rest of what I have. Until then I will try not to think about the lucky stiff who is holding close and whispering sweet nothings to that Model 65 haha.
