I'm new to anything that starts with "marlin" so you'll have to forgive me if this seems like an incredibly stupid question. Referencing the photo below, do I have something to worry about?



The rest of the bore doesn't look bad and my new baby does need a cleaning, but shame on me for not noticing this before. Of course, it could be normal given the patterning. It's literally a ring inside that narrow zone of the barrel interior, which strikes me as an incredibly isolated area for rust. If it helps, the serial is 98series (2008?).

On a side note, it looks incredibly sexy with my katana.

Clean it and shoot it. Then tell us if you have problems. BTW swords are ninja. Marlin levers are not.
I will, but these guys disagree with you :)

Teppo Jutsu refers to the "art of the rifle", a warrior art practiced in feudal Japan by the Samurai. Contrary to popular belief, the Samurai did use firearms and as with all their weapons arts, were quite the skilled "riflemen". Similar to the other weapons employed, for the Samurai this art encompassed all aspects of the rifle as a weapon: achieving accuracy, proper cleaning and maintenance, rifle and ammunition design and development, as well as using the rifle in Close Quarters Combat. This latter included such skills as weapons retention, striking with the rifle as a blunt weapon, and even the use of the bayonet (Juken Jutsu).


And I love the see-thrus myself. :-*

It's a stainless rifle, rust is possible but not likely. It's probably copper fouling and powder residue, clean it and shoot it.

Looks good to me. Don't think you need to clean it unless you want to.

The copper fouling has corroded, similar to a penny. 1 pass with a solvent soaked brush and patch and it will be gone.

Your gun is a 2002. Like Tman said the copper fowling just turned blue. Give it a cleaning and welcome to Marlin Owners! Those are some shnazzy see thrus on there! ;)

FYI; Hit it with some breakway, ran a few patches and got rid of the gunk easily enough just as you all suspected it would. Will proceed with live firing this weekend :)

And I like my see-thrus, neener-neener ;D
Actually, I like the fact that the scope came part of the package more than anything, but I appreciate access to the irons nonetheless.

Need a cheap butt-stock now. Much as I would like one of those hot leather ones, probably not yet ;)
