Thank you for taking a look at my Marlin 81DL 22 S/L/LR Bolt Action Rifle. These are great shooters that are known for their accuracy. It has a 22” barrel and weighs a little over six pounds. This rifle has a capacity of 25-short and 18-LR.

Here is an excerpt from Brophy’s book on Marlin Firearms. “The 81DL started production in 1941, in 1942-1944 because of the war no production, resumed production in 1945 and continued until 1964. It came with sling swivels, target-type sights, Bishop-style stock with Monte Carlo comb of the finest walnut with a special finish to withstand all kinds of weather and hard usage. There were some changes in the stock from earlier days; in 1941 the 81C & 81DL had an enlarged forearm that resulted in a pronounced ridge along the sides of the stock. Post WW ll production did not have stocks with that feature.”

The wood stock and bore is in very good shape. Actually it is in beautiful shape considering it dates from the 50-60’s. This is an “old style” rifle and not for the weak to hold and shoot. Honestly this is a solid rifle, worthy of collection, and also worthy to be taken squirrel hunting.

I’ve cleaned the gun with Gun-scrubber and rubbed it down good. I’ve used the peep sights and it is on target in the 25-30 yard range. I have shot the CCI quiets and Federal standard velocity ammunition and it shoots like a dream.

I promise the firearm is in good working condition. Please complete your due diligence before you bid and ensure this is a firearm you would like to have.

Make sure it's legal in your jurisdiction before you bid. It is the buyer's responsibility to make sure that the gun they purchase is legal in their state. This firearm must ship to a FFL-please make sure that your chosen FFL can accept shipments from an individual seller; if I need to use a FFL to ship to you there will be an additional $25 charge. Please no sales to any state where purchase of this firearm is prohibited by law. No sales to Alaska/Hawaii.

I can provide more pictures or answer any additional questions you may have. I'm a "working stiff" but promise to get it shipped out quickly once I receive your payment and FFL information. Shipping costs assume to be within the lower 48; may be more for Alaska/Hawaii. This is a “no reserve” auction and the high bidder wins.

Thanks for taking a look at my firearm and I wish you well in your shopping.
