I was at the local gun shop and saw the above mentioned SG. It was a little rough, but not bad for a 94 year old SG. I saw in my blue book that these were made in 1906 and 1907. It also showed the value in poor condition at $150 so they aren't collectors pieces like the M97 and M12. The want $190. Does anyone have experience with this SG?

Thanks

Marlin made about a gazillion versions and upgrades of their 1893 pump shotgun. This is a variant of that. Generally speaking Marlins are good shotguns but parts can be hard to find. Also some of the early variants were for black powder cartridge loads.
The excellent book Marlin Firearms by William Brophy has several chapters devoted to Marlin shotguns.
