Iv tryied wikipedia to figure out more about this particular gun but it was no help. it looks like it was made in either 1908 or 1909. on the bottom of the gun it has the number 4941 i have no idea what it means though.

WOW posted in late 07 and just found this post while looking for more info. you guys must be morons to not have posted anything in 2 years. thanx for the help.

I did however find more info on this weapon. like all the safety checks to use to see if this weapon could be fired without repare. it passed all safety checks.

Your post was made Prior to Me becoming the Marlin Whore...lol

Marlin Model 42A Visibile Hammer Slide-action repeating shotgun.
It was similar to the Marlin 24 Grade A, but not of as a high quality.
Made from 1922-1934


the Model 24 WAS made from 1908-1915
Grade A-$275
Grade B-$455
Grade C-$575
Grade D-$1195
Prices subject to change depending how stupid the people on Gunbroker are getting this month. ;)

i dont want to sell it. and it says 1909 on the shotgun itself. so that must mean its 100 years old this year. cool.

Heay what kind of Shells would you reccomend shooting? i know it cant use slugs. and it probbly cant use steel shot. so would any shell that uses lead be ok?

Also iv found alot of good deals on ammo online but i cant tell if they are steel shot or lead shot.

That I don't know...that may be better answered by a Gunsmith familiar with OLD shotguns.
I'd hate to even try to guess.

Try the Shotgun section :)

Its gotta be made in 1909 because that's what it says on the barrel.

EDIT: After more checking it seems that it had been made anywhere between 1922 and 1933. im betting it was made more close to 1922 becaus it has a low number.
