MARLIN No 18 SLIDE ACTION
A slim trim little rifle with a 20 inch octagon barrel. Caliber 22. Most blue remains on both the receiver and the barrel. There is some light to moderate frekking on the barrel and a couple spots on the receiver. Bore is shiny but there is some roughness. Wood is in VG condition and nice fitting. Upper tang has 2 holes drilled for an upper tang sight which are not factory holes. There were about 16,000 of these made from 1906 - 1909 and not seen very often. Very nice little rifle.
