MP- Naw, no paypal. Precious metals, bearer bonds, loose ammo, nubile women, distilled spirits or chocolate accepted.

Seriously, the Marlin levers are sweet rifles, machined steel and walnut- harks back to the days when a rifle was built to last longer than the buyer. I have grandchildren that are shooting the Marlin 39 that Mom bought Dad for their first anniversary. Enjoy.

Umm- just curious- why the interest in 45-70?

You're a funny guy. When I was a kid, I had a bunch of toy guns. My favorite was the lever action rifle that looks like this one. It would be really cool to get the real thing. Plus it has all the features I want- Easy loading and unloading, no bolt action, no scope, power, and the overall look.
