Description: Original Marlin .410 Barreln 22 ” Choke ?? LOP 13 & ¼”

The stock on this gun was shortened and then re-extended, also the butt-plate is not original otherwise the gun is in very nice condition.

If asked to name perhaps the most popular lever action rifles in history, odds are Marlin would top that short list of answers. The thing is, did you know that Marlin made a shotgun version of the carbine? Better yet, that it was in sweet-shooting .410? If not then keep reading...

The classic Model 410

In 1929, Marlin took their standard Model 1883 lever action rifle and reworked it as a shotgun. To do this they had to lengthen the loading port, modify the tubular magazine, and replace the .45 caliber rifled barrel with a 26-inch smoothbore cylinder choked shotgun tube.

This allowed the gun to hold five shots of .410 gauge. Like most shotguns of its era, it was only given a gold bead front sight and no rear.

A rare gun, it wasn't widely marketed although its list price was just $30. Instead was given away free to stock buyers at a rate of one new gun for every four shares of Marlin Preferred Stock. Now these shares were $25 a pop at the time, which, adjusted for inflation, would translate to about $1400 in 2014 dollars.

The thing is, when you remember 1929 from your high school U.S. History class, you recall that it was the same year as the great Wall Street crash, which quickly turned into the Great Depression. With that in mind, it is easy to see why these guns were out of production by 1934, with Brophy estimating that under 10,000 were made.

Since these guns often went to bankers and investors and not sportsmen, they survive today in decent quantity, often in exceptional condition. The going rate for these lever action scatter guns? Oh, about $1400 (showing that they have kept their value in line with inflation) with a few super-rare 26 or 22-inch modified choke round barrel versions going for well over $2K.
