This is a rare/unusual one. In the 1950's after the Kessler Arms Company who had invented the Levermatic action went out of business, Marlin licensed it. They produced levermatic rifles from the late 50's to the late 60's. The 57M was manufactured from 1959 to 1969. This is a last year production rifle manufactured in 1969. The levermatic action is unique in that the lever has a very short 1.5" travel - hence the name. This gun has a 24" barrel and tubular magazine that holds 15 rounds of 22 Magnum. All 57M's were drilled and tapped at the factory for a peep sight on the left side of the receiver. Seldom is one encountered with that sight. This one has it - a Williams peep. This rifle is in near pristine shape. Excellent blue, excellent walnut stock, excellent bore, extremely smooth action. Like most Marlin's it has a micro groove barrel. This rifle has a steel receiver (some of the early 57 22 LR guns had an aluminum receiver). The total production numbers for the 57M was less than 70,000 rifles.

I will include 4 boxes of 22 Magnum rounds. 2 are unopened Remington 40gr PSP rounds (100rds total) and 2 partial boxes - one of Sellier and Bellot 45gr solids (29 rds) and the other Fiocchi 40gr JSP (35rds) so a total of 164rds. The price is $400. Not looking for trades at this time.

The marling has been SPF. Thanks, Earl

I need to do a FTF in the North Dallas area (I am in Plano). First to say they take it, gets it. I can be reached via PM or email - elbattey@verizon.net I do have it cross listed.

Thanks,
Earl
