I have for sale a Marlin 1897 Texan 22 in excellent condition I would judge it at a 91/2. I have owned the rifle for about seven years and have never fired it..(safe queen) I cant say it has or has not ever been fired. ...NO BOX or PAPERWORK These were in the catalog over a two year period only ...2002-2003. (JM stamped of course) Going to downsize some of my treasures before the new law takes the fun out of it for me. Besides working on the big 75 in years. $750 Cash no trades............Meet somewhere in the Dallas, Monmouth area. Prefer a quick sale. Thanks for looking...Sorry my camera is not the greatest...looks much better than it shows.
