Looks like a Marlin 81, or possibly the JC Higgins version.

I have a JC Higgins that is similar , except that it has the detachable box magazine instead of the tube feed. It was my first gun, and it is a great shooter.

If it is a J.C.Higgins 103.229 it will say so on the barrel just about the end of the forearm !...............You said painted it may be covered up.
