I also found a number of old adds for these a while back - at some point I'm going to make a display case and do some photoshop work to merge a few of these together.

welcome

Very cool stuff! It's interesting the one ad lists "Schuetzen Target Ranges." Very few people even know what that is anymore. There's a few clubs around Fredericksburg. They were more than shooting competitions, they were a major social event!

Thanks for posting. up

that would not be the the Marlin mfg, they only made from 1895-1898 your serial no puts yours much later

Much later than yours, or much later than 1908? I've found two sources that give 1908 and another than gives 1908-1912. I want to make sure what I'm telling folks is factual.
