BarkeyVA;

It is a great gun and has been listed before. Problem is he has a high reserve on it, $1,400.00 worth. Just not worth that much.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.

If the world was perfect.......it wouldn't be.

I was just wondering how/why it showed up on a shotgun link.

BarkeyVA;

I see the "link". The description lists the gun at 90% condition, and you are picking up the 90 number in your search for "Marlin & 90"
It is also listed in the "antique" section.
The seller purchased this gun from Cowan's auction a while back, and probably paid to much for it at the time, so now his reserve is to high for anyone to seriously consider buying. I have put a couple of reasonable bids on it in the past, but his reserve is to high.
