Old Marlin Pump

Hey folks,

I picked this up back in the summer. It's a Marlin Model 19N 12ga. pump from back in the early 1900's that the Lgs had on it's rack for about a year and it was just taking up space..anyhow, the shop owner who is a good friend and has my C&R license on file and knows that I like the old stuff asked me if I would be interested in the old Marlin. Well I said of course if the price was right..I didn't know anything about the Marlin and went ahead and bought it for $ 100 otd. It cycles like a Winchester 97..exposed hammer. After a little research I decided not to fire it as they were deemed unsafe to fire..not a problem for me as I have other shotguns to shoot. A serious Marlin collector offered me $ 200 since it is in very good condition for it's age but I decided to keep it. I just like the old guns. Tell me what you think. Rich

I love it. Why is it unsafe to shoot? Looks to be in great shape.

Any gun in that condition for a hundred is a good deal. That's a nice old Marlin and is really neat.

It is obvious you enjoy the old guns and knives. Keep the pictures coming.

The chambers may not be 2 3/4" so best to find out before any shooting. I have a problem owning anything I can't shoot so I would be looking for someone to check it out. Just the way I am I guess.

I can't believe one that nice hung on the rack for more than even a week. Why is it deemed unsafe to shoot?

Safety always come first when handling or shooting any firearm old or new. My gunsmith checked this old Marlin out and said it was good to go..at my risk. He schooled me on the old Marlin slide action hammer shotguns which included the Model 19N. Marlin issued a service bulletin recommending these old guns not be fired due to the fact that most are at least over 100 years old and system failures do and have happened. Prior to this model their shotguns were set up for 12ga 2 1/2 inch black powder. Mine is, I've been told is from around 1904 and is 12ga 2 3/4 smokeless powder. This gun is about as nice as you will find an old Marlin 19N field gun. It has a mirror bore and was well maintained but I will never fire it due to the possible safety issues. Hope this helps.
