For those that don't know, it's a pump .22LR/.22S.
I think you'll have a few years after he's born to shoot it
Heck, watching you shooting it will probably make him more interested in it!
Marlin Model 38 made from 1920-1930. Approx 20,000 were produced. Option of round or Octagon 24" barrel. (Hope it's the Octagon, they look nicer, IMO)

Schematic ain't real helpful...but it shows a few things, plus has a parts list.
The Marlin 32 was the precursor (first edition) 1914-1915. Reportedly it was dropped from production because of metal shortages due to WW1. Oddly, even though less than 3,000 of the 32's were produced, the 38 is selling for higher
I can't find a manual for either. I'd suggest posting on the Marlin Owner's Forum for assistance. Marlin Owners - Index
