Marlin 80 DL

Got out the old 80 DL with Williams peeper for a change of pace. Wow, what an accurate rifle. It did have a few failures to eject, but most rnds extracted and ejected with ease. Thoughts?

I have the same rifle with a Lyman peep. Great fun to shoot and very accurate.
As for as the failure to extract check that the extractor groove is clean of any gunk.

Very Nice, its on my want list, I just let one slip thru my fingers today on GB. I think it went for $341, it was higher than I wanted to pay. It was nice, just missing the disc from the peep sight.

You have some nice wood on that one. I have an 81dl that isn't walnut but plain birch even though it has the bullseye in the stock. Accurate shooter though.

Tnx everyone for the replies and suggestions. I didn't realize this model had gone up that much in value.

Yeah, I don't think that auction was a true representation of the market, one just like it sold a month or so ago for $195 and the peep sight was complete. I tapped out on this one at $306 and would have been paying to much at that. But I'm bored and its a model I don't have so............... One thing about GB there will be another one for sale down the road.

Good points Big Dog. Amazing how many "vintage" rifles remain operational and offered for sale. I presume the sellers are most often kids who inherit our stuff and have no interest in shooting or the inherent beauty of the firearms themselves.

That is a beautiful rifle, I have one that is drilled and tapped and the stock notched, but when I bought it about 50 years ago, it was already gone. I had a Weaver El Paso 4X scope mounted on it until yesterday. I have a more powerful one on there now, gonna see if it helps. I'm kinda old and my eyesight is not what it used to be.

Have a blessed day,

Leon

I have a very early 80 DL I think it’s either a 40 or 41 of all my .22s I think it’s my most fun to shoot. SV ammo is pretty boring just punching through the same hole.

Thnx Leon/Outbuilding. I've only owned this one about a year; love it. I hear 'ya on the eyes....the Peep on this one really helps.

Here is a blurry photo of mine, I put the Weaver scope back on it. The other scope was junk.

It has been re blued and I refinished the stock. I have had it for 50 years or so. It and I are both "vintage" models.

Have a blessed day,

Leon
