Marlin slide-action in 'Gun Digest'



Log in to see fewer ads
Hey guys,

About fifteen years ago I read an old 'Gun Digest', and recall an an article in the 'One Good Gun' series about an old Marlin slide-action .22 rimfire.

Sadly, I gave the book away and am unable to remember which year's 'Digest' it was...

Could anyone please help me?

Thanks!

Spikey

'98 Gun Digest p. 97. "Me and the Family Marlin" by my good friend Holt Bodinson, a great guy and a great writer.

Thank you very much! I'll keep an eye out for that edition. I seem to remember it was one of the earlier Marlins with an octagonal barrel.

Hi again Spikey, Yes, it was a little Number 18, the forerunner of the M20. Very interesting little rifle, it was the first Marlin .22 pump. It was designed by a true firearms genius, Lewis Hepburn, and came out in 1906. The much more popular Number 20 came out only a year later. Since it could handle all three .22 rounds, it was way more popular.
