Nelson;

The Marlin Model 25 pump action, .22 short and CB caps caliber rifle was only made 2 years, 1909 and 1910, and sold for $10.00 at the time.
It was made as an inexpensive rifle to own and use because of the caliber. It was advertised for personal use and in shooting clubs and for gallerymen.
Value of any antique firearm is dictated by the amount and condition of the original factory finish on the wood and metal. Without knowing these conditions, it is not possible to give an estimation of value at this time.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there will be no warning shot!

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

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