I found this lever on the local gun site, I'm in California . It's not the true Marlin, it's the sears model made by JC Higgins, if you have any information, whatever it is , lets talk about it.
I know a little about it, some alloy parts instead of steel and such.
I'd like to hear your opinions.

Sears sold "Ted Williams" model 100 30-30 made by Winchester, it was their "top of the line" toys. JC Higgins was the normal sportsman products. What you have could be a Marlin manufactured piece .

Is it a Ted Williams?

I have a Marlin 56, it may be the most accurate 22 I have, or maybe I love it so much, it makes me a better shooter. I've killed more squirrels with my 56 than my 8 other 22s combined x 10.

The pics show an aluminium receiver model so one of the later ones.

That is a very nice rifle. Looks like a keeper.
It reminds me of the Model 62 that I owned many years ago. It was chambered in the 30 carbine. Can't hardly find them anymore and they are pricy when you do. Still kicking myself for letting it go. What was I thunk'n??? Or maybe I wasn't. thunk'n I mean.

I've got a model 62 in 30cal carbine, and I will not price it. I bought it new!

Finally took the Marlin 56 lever to the range today. Didn't have one failure of any kind. Them 22's sounded like magnums coming out of the barrel. The short stroke made it easy to maintain my site picture, as good as it is with my eyes. It's a lot of fun to shoot!
Here's the two targets I shot, one with 24 rounds, two mags, and one target with 12.

Distance was 25 (blurry) yards, about 85 degrees with a slight breeze left to right.
Good times!
