I ended up with Marlin model 81-DL. When I got it I just cleared it an put in the gun cabinet (I thought it was a model 25 to be honest). I just checked it out and it looks like it hasn't been shot much at all. Anyway, I have been having a hard time finding anything out about it other than it was made from between the 40's and early 60's. After looking at it closer, it appears to be a quality adult .22 and back then must of cost a bit of $. Anyone have one or know anything about them?
