The caliber is .44-40 Winchester. The bores vary from around .427-.429", but usually towards the .427" size. Your serial number indicates a date of 1897 mfg. Values of antique firearms are based on condition, and any special features, or changes. I cann not estimate your gun's value without a set of good pictures or a first hand exam.

Where is the serial number on a marlin model 56?

Some Marlin Model 56 did not have a stamped serial number. The Firearms Control Act of 1968 required serial numbers to be stamped on weapons and since the Model 56 began production in 1955 it was not required. While Marlin did stamp some, they discontinued the practice saying it was non productive.

What is the age of your marlin 30-30 model 1936 serial 15 stamped on lower tangno letters special smokless steel stamped by rear sight and Marlin safety stamped on top of receiver?

The model 1936 was stamped as such for only the first year of production (released in 1937 I believe), and was re-branded as the Model 36 in the years that followed, so if you show the stamp "Model 1936", you are holding an original. This rifle is approx. 72 years old.

How do you properly clean a Marlin lever action rifle?

Serial numbers were required per a 1968 firearms act. Marlin .22's produced prior to this were not required to have serial numbers stamped on the weapon and marlin decided it was not productive to do so. Although they did stamp some earlier models they discontinued the practice. My Marlin model 56 made in 1960 also has no serial number.

What ammunition does a Marlin 1887 shoot if it has 32W stamped under the hex barrel?

I'm assuming you have a Marlin model 1889, not 1887, as they never made a model 1887. The 1889 does have a patent date of 1887 on the barrel, so this is a common mistake. Any Marlin marked ".32W" on the barrel will normally be chambered for the .32-20 Win. cartridge.

well marlin introduced the marlin model 43 in 1922 so mabey when u figure out what you really have you could try another question My Marlin Model 43 12 gauge pump (Model number is stamped underneath, in front of the trigger guard) has Pat. 1908 on the barrel.
