Welcome to Marlin Owners (MO). Just give your question a little time -- one of the collectors will probably jump on it and fix you right up.

If I'm reading it right, I think it's an early 1968. DP (Mr. Fixit just confirmed what I thought.)

You acquired a nice little rifle there. Pictures are a must. I have one made in '65. With all these WesternFields showing up all of a sudden, maybe we should start our own little club to show differences between the years----If there is any?

Welcome to MO, blankmeyer.

I have a 1967 model WesternField 740, and am very fond of it.
You will enjoy your's for many years to come.

Good idea, Delbert.

Here's mine:

Here's mine, but I changed out the Red Dot scope and put on a Burris FullfieldII scope, and now also wears a sling.

Thanks for the warm welcome and the help, folks. I haven't figured out how to get pictures on here yet, but will try to get some soon. I'm real happy with the rifle, just a good honest gun, looks to have been shot very little. It has factory rear barrel sights. I may be replacing those with a peep (what do you think of the tang sights?)

This is really a very informative forum. I have learned a lot already.
