Springfield J.Stevens Arms Co. maybe?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

A picture of the rifle and any markings on the barrel or bolt, if applicable, would be helpful. Many of the folks here can ID most guns from that info.

Get us some GOOD pictures. And EVERYTHING stamped onto the metal. Marble DID manufacture an unusual two barreled handgun known as the Gamegetter, HOWEVER- they manufactured a sight used on many firarms, and they are more common than the Gamegetters.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

For some of us old farts around here, all we usually need is a good photo and sometimes photos of all markings.
