About theree years ago I picked this rifle up new in the box from a friend. He said he need cash for a new project and only wanted $150. I can’t seem to pass up a good deal so, I bought it. I really didn’t have any use for it at the time so it got stuck in the attic. The other day I was up in the attic looking for something and saw the box up Marlin and got to thinking. I had just pulled the Bushnell 4-12 scope off the Savage Axis rifle I picked up, and it should fit the Marlin. I got the rifle down today . I dug out a box of old mounts and found a set that would work. If the weather stays nice this weekend, I may take it out for a test run.
