Description:

Manufactured in 1891. The receiver features highly attractive English style floral scrollwork along with scroll borders and a circular bordered stag scene on the left side. It is similar to examples documented in Brophy's "Marlin Firearms" which are listed as factory engraved. Scrollwork flanks the "MARLIN SAFETY" receiver marking at the top and bottom. The special order part octagon barrel has blade front and fixed notch rear sights, and the legend ending with the 1890 patent date. The correctly unmarked upper tang is mounted with a peep sight. The highly figured forearm and pistol grip stock feature multi-point checkering and a Marlin hard rubber buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Very good plus, the refinished barrel and magazine retain most of the blue finish and a few faint traces of the original case colors are on the frame with the balance a mixture of silvered case colors and grey patina. The finely figured wood is fine with a sliver of wood absent at the right side frame juncture, minor dings and scratches throughout, and well-defined checkering. Mechanically excellent.
