Marlin 15



Log in to see fewer ads
I came across this Marlin 15 several weeks ago at a local pawn shop. A Japan made Tasco scope was mounted on it. Even though it is a single shot, I couldn't get it out of my mind, and last weekend I brought it home. The scope is in excellent condition and clear as a bell. I don't have any use for it and will probably let it go. The squirrel stock was a mystery when I first saw it, but a little research with Brophy convinced me it is original to the rifle.

Very good condition for a gun that old (probably late 70's).

I have had Model 100's and 101's, but never saw a 15 or 20.

This was the first one I'd seen and was initially confused with the squirrel embossed stock. From Brophy, with the demise of the Glenfield brand in 1982, the model 15 continued under the Marlin name for one year, 1983, as a promotion model. Hence the squirrel stock. The serial number on mine shows a manufacture date of 1982. With this information, I felt like the rifle would be a good purchase.

That's a sweet looking little single shot, I have never seen a model 15. Its in great shape, I would have snagged that one myself, I like the hard to find Marlins

bought one new back in the 70's, a fine little shooter, should have held onto it.

I have Glenfield 10 - from 1969 - predecessor to yours

Single shots are great training rifles and for squirrels from the deck
