SOLD--16 gauge lovers and American made shotgun lovers will like this Marlin Model 90 O/U 16ga. Marlin got in to the O/U business in the late 30's. Brownings were selling well. Remington had the Model 32 and Savage had the Models 420/430. The Marlin Model 90 was a field grade gun that has developed a good following all these years later. Made in 12/16/20 gauge with a few 410 bores and some rifle/shotgun combos--these guns were affordable for the average sportsman/hunter of the day. The 16's and 20's were built on the same frame. Prior to WW-2 the Model 90's had a solid rib between the barrel. Post-War the center rib was eliminated. This gun is an early- Mid-50's gun with 26 inch barrels bored improved cylinder and modified. It's got just about all the original finish on the barrels and receiver. It would be hard to find a better specimen. The wood is very good with sharp checkering. Bores and mechanics are excellent. A poorly fitted pad has been added and the LOP is 15 1/4 inches. The stock was probably not cut. The pad is soft and usable but has a few broken cross sections. A nice trim quick pointing O/U that would make an exc field gun. So--if you ever wanted one of these--esp. in 16 gauge--I doubt many exist in better shape. I'll deliver this gun to your FFL in the lower 48 for $495.
