Made for only 3 years between 1957 and 1959, the Marlin Model 98 is scarcely seen today in any condition. The Marlin Model 98 is a self-loading rimfire rifle that is fed from a tube magazine located in the buttstock of the gun. The Model 98 features a recoil-operated action, a grooved receiver for optics, a 22" inch barrel with iron sights, and an American Walnut pistol grip stock. This particular example is serial number 212, likely making it a first year production gun from 1957. It is an all-original rifle in superb condition, and has the sought-after optional factory receiver-mounted peep sight instead of the normal barrel-mounted blade rear sight (original factory-installed sight blank in dovetail). The factory blue finish is in excellent condition, rating 97% with only some tiny handling marks counting as deductions. The bore is perfect in this rifle, bright and clean with nice sharp "Micro-Groove" rifling. As you can see from the pictures, this Marlin has an exceptional factory stock on it with lots of beautiful figure and contrasting grain showing. The stock is free from any cracks, chips, repairs, or wear. All of the stock hardware is in excellent condition as well. All of the controls are in 100% perfect working order, and the bolt closes into battery with force. We have no doubt that this rifle would function just as well today as it did when it left the factory in 1957. If you have been looking for an interesting new Marlin .22 rifle for your collection this Model 98 would be very hard to beat!
