Mh53;

What you are looking at is the Marlin trademark "Bullseye". Marlin started that trademark in 1923 and described it as a Marlin "birthmark" showing it was a Marlin. What it ended up being is a sales gimmick, so when a customer walked into a hardware store, and saw an upright rack of guns, that customer could easily pick out the Marlins without seeing the rest of the gun.
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.
