    how's that?
    Everything looks fine, only wear on the finish, no cracking or whatnot. Unless you're saying the stock looks, well, not stock.

  10. I think this is the winner. Here's another shot of an 1898. It looks exactly the same.

    I've got one of those too. Marlin 1898. Kickass design, sucks it's not built to handle modern 12ga loads. :hs:

    Hi there, I'm that "friend who is an expert on old and antique guns" of Sphen's, and I found out the following. It is a clone of the Marlin Model 21 shotgun, which was produced by Marlin between 1899 and 1904. It can be confused with the 1898, but the stock is straight as opposed to pistol-gripped on the '98. It was designed primarily for blackpowder shotshells, however, low-pressure modern shells can be used quite safely as long as the gun is sound. The Marlins sometimes get a bad rap, but as long as you go through the following checklist you should be fine. Safety tests: http://www.100megspop3.com/oldvalkyry/marlin.html
    You have a very interesting and nice looking shotgun there, I hope this has helped.

    Thanks Market Garden! I also have found that this shotgun would be valued between $180 and $320, depending on who you sold it to. And I also found out that Marlin made shotguns marked 'National Fire Arms Co' for H&D Folsom Arms Co of New York City. Hope that answers all of your questions.

    Damn, more helpful than I was imagining. Thank you, I'm going to find some low-pressure shells and run through the checklist when i'm cleaning the thing. Thanks a lot guys, Hopefully I can get out to the range and manage to encourage myself to get another gun so that this one will stay in good condition.
