Marlin 57M Levermatic - 1960-1969
I've got a Sears 46C/Marlin 56...w/ Sears "Ted Williams" 4x Scope & Marlin Leather Sling
When I got it, this carbine had been pretty badly dogged out, finish was half-gone, it was covered in a light rust....just awful condition.
A few hours of cleaning and it started to look good again...repainted the reciever with Krylon Flat Black...refinished the stock,
which turned out to be a decent piece of wood! Found the scope for $10 at a pawn shop...
The whole project took about 2 weeks of fiddlin with it after work.
One of these days I'll track down a 57M...its been on my list for a few years...
