Description: This Marlin Take-Down carbine is in NRA 'Good' condition for it's age. The rifle was manufactured in 1904. This firearm is quite rare. It was originally produced as a 16" carbine and has several options. The tang sight is a Lyman optional sight and is complete and quite usable. The front sight is very unusual in that it is a tiny gold bead mounted on a traversing bar that is windage adjustable with two little screws on each end. This is mounted on a slug which fits the dove-tail on the barrel. The rear sight is the standard buck horn model. The stock & forend are in very good condition with no fracture lines, anywhere. The only bad place is the toe of the stock where a small chip is missing. This is approximately 7/8"X3/8". The butt plate is original to the gun and is missing a small amount of the toe where the stock was chipped. There is some bluing remaining on the receiver bolt and the barrel and magazine tube have most of the original blue remaining. The balance of the receiver has a silver/brown patina where the case colors once were. The take-down mechanism functions properly and the internals are in amazingly good condition. The bore of the octagonal barrel is fair. Some corrosion and pitting from black powder loads, but plenty of rifling to spin a bullet. The steel forend nose-cap has two screws to hold it in place. The R/H side screw is missing half of its face. Hardly noticeable and not a big deal,easily fixed. A couple of other small screw heads have buggered slots. Overall, pretty good for a hundred and five year rifle. Please remit funds by Postal Money Order and include a signed copy of the FFL you would like it sent to and add $25.00 shipping/insurance.
