Comments and Description:

For your consideration is my Marlin 1897 in 22 s.l.lr. It was born in 1901 making it 117 years old. The bore is bright with very nice rifling. The stocks still have quite a bit of their finnish with no cracks, chips only honest wear, bluing & patina covers metal surfaces. I would rate this gun at 70-75% overall. Book value in my new Fjestad blue book is around $1500 in this condition.(shown 60%-80%)  I may consider trade but not for any plastic guns. only wood & steel. Considering this gun is that old and in this nice of condition I am not going to lowball it. I will leave it up for a couple weeks if not gone by then it will be removed.  Guns have always been better investments than most everything else I have tried so if it don't sell I won't be too concerned. If interested text or call 208-631-3458
