    Hello guys new to this site I have had this gun in our family for a long while, no sentimental aspects to it but been around along time. Is this a model 1895? It has the factory peep sight and circle sight that flips up on the front of the barrel and also a dovetail site on the barrel as well. Says mailing safety on top of the receiver and has dates on the barrel. Thinking about selling this gun and was wondering what value it might have. Thanks

    Looks to be a 22 rimfire, tube fed, takedown.

    The model 1891 (loaded from receiver) became the 1892 (tubular magazine) which became the 1897 (takedown) which became the 39 in 1921 and the 39A in 1937

    Looks to be a Model 1897. Is there a serial number or other markings? Check on the tang under the lever. There may be a Marlin 1897 marking under the tang sight as well.

    Regarding value: probably a lot. It looks to be in great shape

    Yes thanks is a 22 caliber Inhave shot it in the past, tube magazine. Says Marlin safety on top of the receiver. No model number found but serial number is 182xxx the serial number is 182000 range does that help?

    Looking to get a scope for a center fire rifle and wondering what value would be decent to ask for this gun?

    Thanks again

    Also the butt plate says on it Marlin safety?

    Hard to see because of glare but clearly legible when looking at gun it says " Marlin safety"

    According to the serial number I entered this gun was made in 1899 if a model 1897?

    Looking at others online pretty sure it is a 1897 and the peep sight seems to increase value?
