Its a Marlin,12 guage, 3in. magnum,detachable mag, bolt action shotgun from [email protected]! The barrel measures about 35". I put it next to the M1a for reference.
I have never even shot it. I have another one that looks just like it, but has a normal barrel.

I have not seen one of those in a lot of years. A friend had one for goose hunting, when he could not afford a semi auto.

Buddy of mine has one with a shorter barrel, and the magazine is missing. He found it in the trash.

Buddy of mine has one just like it, except in 16 gauge. He won't let me talk him out of it yet...

The "Marlin Goose Gun"

Man, what a flashback. I haven't seen one of these in a long time. Had one years ago as a beginner duck hunter,was like carrying a landscape timber to hunt with. Seemed like the barrel was 5 foot instead of 36"..... Thanks for postingGI6

The Marlin Goose Gun...Magnum Chamber and a long barrel. That was a working mans goose gitter, or an affordable way to get your kid a goose outfit. The later is why I got mine.

That ol bolt would freeze solid if you got it wet. Lots o memories...GI7

PS....The long barrel IS the normal barrel

The nice thing about those big ol' guns is that they don't kick much. They're so heavy the recoil is absorbed and feels more like a sudden shove.

That's exactly what it is. Made in the lead shot days. With lead shot/long sight radius and barrel it would reach out to those high flyers. dozier

Dad had one briefly in the 80s due to some gun trades but I don't think we kept it long enough to even shoot it. Also the local country store had one that looked like someone had taken a conduit bender to and curved the barrel around 90 degrees, they used it for decoration.

I happened to be cruising through a gunshop last weekend and came across a BEAUTIFUL Winchester model 1901 lever-action 10 guage. I fell in love with it before I saw the price tag: $6,900.

Broke my heart. Had to walk away... GI9
