    I am not knowledgeable about the .22 rifles. I just wanted to welcome you to the forum. I'm sure someone will chime in and help you.

    ^^ ditto ^^
    I'm not familiar with the model 97. Not sure why it would have two different models stamped on it??
    But, Welcome to the forum.
    I'm sure that someone will chime in with an answer. Here is an article on the 1897. http://www.nramuseum.com/the-museum...ket/marlin-model-1897-lever-action-rifle.aspx
    Cabela's has one for sale for $1699.00 Looks to be a pricy unit.
    Be it what it is, here is another link with some information. http://www.marlin-collectors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6595

    Highly probably that someone replaced the barrel...many parts are interchangeable...

    Pics are the best solution...once we see what's going on we can give a more informed answer :)
