    You'll have a hard time wiping the grin off your face after you shoot it!

I put the mag in and tested it with some snap caps, cycled great, I can see the mark that the firing pin left. This was probably the BEST firearms purchase ever. From the serial number the year of manufacturer is 1988. A great year. :-) Martin sent me the actual manual as a .PDF file. It also came with 100 round of Federal .22LR and a hoppes cleaning kit.

    Good score. I have a few rimfires that are my faves, mainly my stainless 10/22 which is a tack driver, but for 60 bucks I'd jump all over that Marlin. Even if I had no use for it, I mean, 60 bucks?

    Seeing a picture of that old model 25 brought back some memories. None of them were bad. I'll risk saying this but you sir just purchased an heirloom gun that can be passed down for generations. I would buy a couple of spare mags for it that you can keep tucked away that only get used when the original one finally fails. Remember, your great grandkids may be shooting it the same way you do today.

    In regards to the magazines.. already did. :-) , and I 100% concur with your post.. it's a fine USA made gun.. and it is wicked accurate. And I intend to buy a few more spare parts here and there that I see for it.. just for backups. If you have not seen my Range Report that I posted today in the other long guns part of the forum, I used to sell guns "way back"... many years ago up in one of the most gun restrictive (and even still to this day) states in our country in the North East. Because of the money, "many permits", and time involved I never bought this same rifle that I was selling at that time (I also liked the Marlin 60 as well.. but this one more because it was a bolt action, like my friend had). So buying this.. many years later in a private sale here in the South East.. is not only rewarding for the price paid for it, and as an heirloom piece, but also as a significant victory in gun rights.. no matter how small that may be to others.. "to me".. it very vindicating to be able to do so.. and to travel "legally" per state law in regards to transporting in a locked trunk (in a locked secured case) to the shooting range and back.

    Sounds like a good deal. I have a Marlin 336 in .30-30; Marlin 1895 in 45-70; Marlin XR7 in 30-06, and 2 Marlin 60s in .22. To me a Marlin is always a good bet.
