Marlin Model 75C

.
The side of the rifle barrel reads:
Marlin Firearms Co.
North Haven, Ct. USA
Model 75C .22LR

The Marlin Model 75C is a brush gun, a carbine version of the Marlin Model 60; it holds 13-rounds of .22 long rifle in the tubular magazine.

It has been a good long time since this rifle has potted a big red squirrel. Times change, we all will pass on and the memories of days afield will die with us. Today many gray haired kids chewed over memories that had a bit of a sorrowful aftertaste. According to the AP, Marlin Firearms is closing its Connecticut plant with a loss of 265 American jobs. Perhaps it is not as dire as it sounds; the AP story does say that Marlin Firearms is moving manufacturing to a yet unmanned state.
