Nice score...!!

The Marlin Model 99M1 is a short carbine with the same tubular magazine and action as the Marlin 99 and 99U.

The main difference is the 99M1 has a wooden hand guard and an 18-inch barrel to make it look more like a US military M1 Carbine.

Marlin introduced the 99M1 in 1964, in hopes that the resemblance to the US M1 carbine would appeal to the thousands of

WW II veterans who had trained with and carried into combat the larger caliber US M1. The 99M1 was a success and over 160,000

were sold before production was discontinued in 1978.
