Good Morning,

While cleaning out my father-in-law's basement, I ran across an XX Standard 1873 that was non functional. I took it to a local gunsmith for repairs. I noted the serial number as 10367 and am wondering where I can find information on its history.

Thanks!

Lt.Col William Brophy's book on Marlin Firearms is the best reference out there, and has a good section on the original pistols. It may be available in your local library, or can be ordered on line from many sources. Not cheap, but worth every penny.

Bill collected Marlin pistols, so he seemed to have a lot more data on them than most other referencesd on Marlins firearms.

I have Brophys' book, sure would like to see a pic or two, perhaps I can help you out some. I'm somewhat confused by the post prior to this one, is this a pistol or rifle? Mr fixit

Sorry for the confusion. I saw 1873 and immediately thought Winchester. Im assuming hes talking about a Marlin pistol?

Pavelow, I ask because of the post that mentions Marlin pistol and the fact that in the book is a xx and a xxx Standard revolver, in fact the Standard gets mentioned on page 105 and ends on page 118, so there is quite a bit of info there. Mr fixit
