Description: Original J. M. Marlin Ballard “Montana” rifle, No. 5 1/2, commonly referred to as a Pacific 5 1/2; 30” octagonal barrel, sharp edges, very good bore with strong rifling, usual minor pitting just ahead of the chamber; mostly patina on the barrel; has the original Rocky Mountain sights, the rear sight is bent slightly from sometime in the past; correctly marked barrel in .45 2 7/8” Sharps, cleaning rod is not original but appears to be period correct; forearm appears to have been shortened slightly in the past, as it is just a wee bit shorter than normal, but was done so long ago that unless you measured the length, you would not notice it; serial number is 9914, as noted in John Dutcher’s book; receiver is mostly silver/grey, excellent lockup to the action, has the wonderfully crisp Ballard DSTs; crescent rifle buttstock, finish on the wood is very good, no cracks at the wrist; a rare and fine condition Montana that one would not hesitate to shoot; can be seen at the Tulsa Gun Show in October; email for more pictures and details at
