That's it you have a rare one, and as said before, the grip shape is different and more elegant than either the regular capped ones, or the caplets ones. The only grip more beautiful is the early s shaped ones.

ok yeah, nothing engraved that I could see, thanks

so it is kind of rare with less than one year doing that, that's kind of cool.

I will have to tell the daughter.

thank you STRUGL4X'SC for catching that I never knew. I have no plans on ever selling it but that's good to know

Super cool stuff, the story of how you came into possession of it and plan to pass it along in the family, just great, I wish you good times shooting it,and the same for your family members. You can look at a thousand of them on the internet and that grip shape will jump out at you like a Ferrari on a dirt road.

thank you very much for the kind words and yes I think my daughter will enjoy it. she loved shooting it and she is the future gun person in the family. my son not so much. she has been shooting since she was six and my son since he was three. but he is not a gun person and doesn't care. so he gets my 76 FJ40 Landcruiser and the daughter gets the guns LOL

by the way very nice collection you have too

thanks again! and you take care too!

forgot to add she is 31 now and the boy is 27.

Old Marlin survivor

How about a Marlin Model 97 made in 1889. I'd say that was pretty old~!
