So....9 days ago, I went to a yard sale and bought an SKS.
2 days ago, I went back for another SKS.
While there, we got to talking. I admit nothing, but there may have been some really good whiskey involved.....
Anywho...... a Marlin 81DL snuck into the car. The guy I drove up with wound up with a nifty 12GA too.
This 81DL is a long, tube fed, bolt action version of the venerable Glenfield. Made from 1941 to about 1964 or thereabouts.
That's about all I really know so far. Still trying to dig up info and get an idea of how old mine is.
I need a scope mount, scope, and the target peep sight that mounts to the rear portion of the receiver. If any of you are Marlin junkies with a parts stash, I could sure use some help.
