This is one of the rarest production Marlins made in 1973. I think around 1200 guns made. The gun is real nice shape. It has been used for hunting and has a few marks. There was some grooves in the pistol grip that I had to fill in from the old owners scores. I didn't like the feel of them. It has a Williams Foolproof on it. I think I might have the rear sight some where. With that long heavy barrel its a great pointer. $900 shipped with a FFL. Sold!!
