Marlin 410

While Winchester has always been the big name in lever action guns, Marlin has been arround nearly as long. Both introduced their signature rifle in 1894, rifles that remained in production for decades.
This jewel though, is not a rifle. Meet the marlin 410 lever action shotgun.
Introduced during the deepest years of th depression, the Marlin 410 was never sold. Instead, Marlin gave these away at their anual shareholders meetings from 1929 to 1932.
A modern version was reintroduced in 2006 but discontinued in 2008. These are a fun gun to shoot, and a challenge to hunt with.
