I went to Marlin owners forum. It says model 1936, serial number 7xxx under lever, made in CT, "Marlin Safety" on top of receiver with fancy arrows. Slotted screws on butt plat, fluted stock, perch forearm stock, case colored case hardened receiver, I'm pretty sure its a 1st run model 1936 which came out in 1936 and was made till 1940 when stock, serial number, screws, etc was changed. This is per Marlin owners forum info. Just wondering when in that time period it was made or if anybody else has any ideas. Thanks.
P.S. its for sale if anyone wants to make a fair offer.
