    Leaning out my in-laws house & garage after they passed last year, I found my wife's Dad's 22 in the garage rafters, where it had been for almost 40 yrs. No one wanted it & said I could have it. I wish I had taken before & after pictures, it was so dirty, I couldn't tell at first what it was, but I was lucky, very little rust on it. I don't think he ever fired it. I haven't had a Marlin 22 in years, was going to buy a 795, now if I can only find some 22 shell's I'll try it out, they are pretty hard to come by around here

    Are you still having problems with .22 bullets?

    You can find them, but it depends what your willing to pay. Just at the gun shop, all they had were match grade at $8.99 for a 50 box. I just can't make myself spent that for them. You never see them at Wal Mart. I'll wait, the price eventually will come back down & they will be everywhere again.

    Crappy picture, but if you saw the before condition. Almost 40 yrs in the garage rafters tend to leave things dirty

    Good find. You never know where the grand folks stashed stuff. The Attic under the insulation pad was a small metal box which had nothing in it.
    But it did have something in it at one time.

    Tim; Welcome to the Marlin Forum.
    That sir, is a nice rifle. I'm envious. I've been keeping my eyes open for one of those or a Marlin 99-M1.
    Should give you many years of enjoyment.

    Thanks. I lucked out the other day, stopped at the gun shop & they actually had a few box's of 22 shells, so I'm going to the range today to try it out, along with 2 handguns & a .410 shotgun my Dad bought for me 40 something yrs ago. Haven't shot it in yrs, but I'm anxious to try it out today

    I think I'm naming the Marlin Bob Marley, cos we be jammin! Only got about 10 shots off, wouldn't feed, 2 shots in a row was the best it would do. Then the lift-feed lever spring edge got caught under the breech bolt & jammed it. Took it apart, straightened the spring, polished up everything & I'll try it again one night after work. Could have been the ammo, I was trying Federal, just lead tip, no copper coating, I have some winchester I'll try in it this week. Though the spring looks & operates ok, I'm going to order a new one today in case I have another problem, I checked the serial number & found out it's from 1974.

    I picked up a Glenfield 75 yesterday, 90 bucks. Pawn shop find. I thought it was a Marlin 99 m1 at first. I own 2 already, so that is what I thought it was.

    Those H&R Singles are a solid ole workhorse. Years ago, I loved to hunt Doves with a 410 single.
    I bought one a few years ago and gave it to a widow lady friend of ours. She lives alone along one of the state highways near here and felt insecure. She had zero experience with firearms and was babysitting to supplement her income, so there were children in the picture. I bought a box of shot shells and gave her a firearm safety course. Then I gave her a box of Federal Hand Gun Loads (000 Buck) and told her that I hoped she never needed to use them. The idea behind my choice was; reliable, simple, ease of use, little to no recoil, could be safely secured and adequate for the purpose.

    Gumpy,

    Although I do look better than the rifle, LOL here you go.
    I put it next to my 99 m1, the other is my model 700, a 70.00 pawn p/u.
    and my umarex 1911 22 pistol with custom grips I made.
