Dang!! I forgot all about the IZH Russian built Baikal O/U. Here's my 20 gauge which I picked up last summer for $300 bucks in like new condition. It is built like a Russian T-38 and is easy to shoot...

Sometimes wrong, but never in doubt...

Built like a Russian T38 tank is not really a great compliment for a gun meant for swinging on your target!........

Model 90 with "G" serial number was made in 1950. Marlin started using the letter prefix in the serial number to indicate the year made after WWII. C-1946, D-1947, F-1949, G-1950, H-1951, (Marlin did not use I, O or Q) J-1952, etc. Apparently, there were a few made prior to WWII that were marked with A (1940) and B (1941)

In case anyone is interested there are a couple of Model 90's listed on, a 16 ga. Sears Ranger 103. and a 12 ga. Model 90ST. Search for Marlin 90 rather than Marlin Model 90.

SKB 500

You may be able to find one in the $500 range, and it will last a lifetime. I've owned one for 33 years.

If you can find a SKB for under $500 and it hasn't been beaten to death, let me know - they go for over $1000 all day long

Many people want to bash the Mossberg Maverick Hunter and I bet none of them have ever shot one. Personally I like them a lot. Are they pretty guns, NO. Are they smooth as glass, no. Are they retardedly expensive, no. As first o/u they swing decent enough, have extractors instead of ejectors, synthetic stocks that you cry about if it gets scratched up, and a decent enough finish against the elements. I don't know about some of these guys on here, but mine spends more time in bad weather than good.
