I have an old .22 single shot bolt action rifle that my dad and late brother owned. A few years ago when dad went into a nursing home, I took the rifle home with me. No markings or #'s are on it. The trigger and bolt are chrome in color, and trigger gaurd is thock black metal. Also, there's only one screw on stock to take it apart.
It looks like all of the old marlins i have ever seen. Or possibly an old h&r(now owned by marlin). They are common beater guns for farmers and people that wanted a pest gun. I would go online to marlin/h&r websites and search the database for one similar to it. If you really want to im sure you can get someone from the company on the phone to help you out. By the way H&R is Harrington&Richardson and i belive they are out of Mass? Very old American company now owned by Marlin. Good luck finding out let me know what happens
Thanks everyone, found the name partialy worn off its a JC Higgins 103.18, based on the Marlin 100. Need to have the stock refinished and find a buttend for it. Can anyone tell me if I can put a scope on this?
If made before 1968, will not have a serial number (1968 Gun Control Act). Please get some close up pics of the action, and any writing on the barrel.
I'm disappointed C3.
Not that it WONT have a serial number, it MAY NOT have a serial number.
My H&R American Double Action was an early model. Had a 5 digit serial number.
I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?
