Pm sent, but here are several important questions

There are a lot of variables to the value of this rifle. Is it an early mid or late, Skipline or regular checkering, machine or hand cut, jeweled or shinny bolt, and etc etc.

Any help in finding a current value would be appreciated. It is in very good condition. It has been shot some. No box or papers or anything. Just a shooter grade gun but still worth a bundle.

Thanks for any input. John

By the way congrats on your first one, I remember and still own my first one, I was in AWE when I held it, I'll never forget the feeling!!!!!

Thanks, I sent you a PM. I will contact you this weekend sometime.

I remember when I first handled this gun over 20 years ago when I saw it for the first time. I still remember that day. I can't wait to get it in my hands again!!!

I got the 40X repeater today. My friend was waiting for me to come up. I spent most of the day with him. His wife just died from covid. We talked, we reminisced. He gave me a very good deal. Here are a couple of pics to start with. We just sold our home so we are very busy. I will get more pics up tomorrow I hope.
Rich I will call you in a couple of days and get the specifics on the gun. It did come with sights and I have them. I did get the Marlin mag that I found for him as a spare over 20 years ago. He also put a Canjar set trigger on it. I got the original trigger too. Everything to make it back to original.

It came with a Leupold 3X9 EFR scope. Very nice wood. More pics to come.
John

Most beautiful. I was surprised the other day at Sportsman's warehouse.

They had just a couple of shotguns with wood stocks. No rifles at all!!

I must be getting old.
