Went to the gunshow today and left all the guns there. then me and my boys and brother decided on a whim to hit one of our favorite country gun shops. nice selection as always. i am a big marlin fan and have some of the Davidson limited edition 336's. as i perused the used racks i spied a stainless walnut shorty and initially thought it was a 1895gs 45/70. then i looked closer and realized i was looking at a davidsons limited. if any of you are real Marlin fans you'll know why i was excited when i saw this roll mark.
Davidsons commissioned 500 of these a few years ago and they have become highly sought after by marlin fans. this gun is really nicely finished and has beautiful wood. the trigger is better than any marlin i own too.
Its a like a mini guide gun. 18.5" barrel. stainless steel and walnut. no ports which is good.
Look at the wood on this thing. unreal for a factory marlin. the pictures don't really do it justice. lots of figure and swirl and smooth as a babys bee hind.
Looks like it was fired very little. came with original box, hammer spur, front site hood and all paperwork. The gunshop didn't know what they had and had it very reasonably priced. about half of what it was worth. i was not going to correct them and got out my wallet fast.
This baby is going to get a set of Talley Lightweight lows and a nice little compact scope one of these days. i'll be heading out back tomorrow after church with a box of 200gr corelokts to give it a try with the open sites. can't wait.
Sweet rifle! I have a 336sc in 35 rem. They may not be as rare as the davidsons but are very hard to find. I felt it was appropriate to put a weaver k2.5 on it. This instantly became my favorite rifle.
