I started with a Model 25 and have had many come and go in our household through out the years. Many fun filled hours Iv'e spent in the renovations and chasing accuracy potential. Some Marlins are good shooters, some not, no matter what you do to them. The 70's were good years for real shooters, but Iv'e had newer that shot just a well. For me the old JM's is the way to go, I'm thankful for the handful I have and always on the lookout

The high end guns are wonderful and have a few but I have more fun with the Marlins

yeah...I'm sick just like the rest of yous

D.I.Y.

The beauty of the rimfires is you don't have to be a rich man to play, the Marlins are one of the best examples. A 100 dollar rifle with some fluff and buff, some attention given to the triggers, some attention given to the action and barrel bedding if finicky and not shooting well.

I encourage all the up and coming infected ones to be on the look out for that old JM stuff. Get handy..learn how to redo the stocks..learn how to cold blue..bedding technique,temporary or permanent, I guarantee you that you'll have a blast. Iv'e sold off new ones to keep my own personal renovated ones. Iv'e even sold some of my renovated ones, all excellent shooters, the people were very pleased with their rifles.. and made enough to buy another old beater (well, not too beat) to bring back to life

Companies and outlets out there sell all the parts to help you bring it back-


Enjoy to the fullest

I am so happy I don't care for automatics...or I would have a real problem.

Thank you for confirming I am not crazy putting a really nice Weaver on my 81 clone. I received it with a crappy Simmons that I could not move to the point of impressively repeated impact. The Simmons crosshairs were too fat to pin point on a location as small as my groups at 50yds.

I think I might have a touch of marlinitis as well. Somewhere around 15 and counting. Smallest is a papoose (well, 3 of them actually), up to a JM 45/70, with a 30-06 MR-7 and a whole bunch of other cool ones in between.

if you look at the pictures, do not- REPEAT, DO NOT- linger, or consider embellishing your own collection of cz's, or any other rifles, pistols, revolvers, or shotguns.

signalman is an enabler, and the influence of his photographs must be resisted.

especially those ones with the really nice tiger stripe lumber not, of course, that i am susceptible...

man, those look good...
What do you mean shotguns you mean like these:

My Browning XS Skeet


Or my Browning Cynergy in 12 and 20 gauge.


your lucky this is Marlin forum...or I could really get you infected. LOL but thanks for the complements.


Mark75H sir the V-16 scope was made for my Marlins. I use these two for gopher shooting the only difference is the rifle model number and the reticle in each scope....both are 22magnums. One reticle for long shots and the other for when the wind blows.

Shot the 81 clone with the Weaver today. Accuracy is confirmed at about 1.6moa with its favorite ammo. My nephew blew 16 shots thru a .80 hole at 50y. The last rounds were just going thru the same hole, no stringing etc.

I have been a Marlin fan for years and years. I have the following:

336A .32 Win
336 30-30 Win
81TS .22
60 .22 (Glenfield Squirrel stock)
25 .22 (Older 1/2 moon style clip)
783 .22 mag

Looking for a 444 and a nice 39...saving my pennies

I also have three 15YN rifles living in my safe. They belong to the three grand daughters and we pull them out when they visit.
