We found this old rifle sticking about 6 inches out of the dirt at an old abandoned homestead on our ranch. Any ideas as what it is?

86 has been tossed around a lot. We are taken it to a antique dealer who thanks he can positively identify it for sure.I just wish it could talk. LOL

Neat find!

I'm going against the grain and saying Marlin. It's really hard to tell though.

It's a lever gun.

Cook find, hard to tell which lever action it is but my agree with Riverrider that is an 86 from the pics. Something for scale could help. Let us know what you find out.

If that rifle could talk some things it might say

Oil please
I lost my butt, butt stock that is.

It hurts my soul to see any gun that was discarded or forgotten like a piece of trash. It's no different than ignoring a fine dog that served its master all its life. It should be always respected for the value it delivered to its owner.

Sadly, some folks just don't deserve the right to own guns or dogs.

Take a pic of the locking lugs at the top rear of the receiver. It's either an 86 (what I'm betting) or a 94.
