The Model 49 was a variant of the basic Marlin pump shotgun produced on the 1889 patents. The Model 49 was made in the late 1920's and was primarily an incentive gift for stock purchasers. Due to several different potential problems with the action, Marlin advised owners of these guns not to shoot them.
The Marlin model 24 shotgun was produced by Marlin from 1908-1915.
If your pump 12 ga. has an exposed hammer, it's most likely a model 1898, as all later models of exposed hammer Marlin shotguns had the model marked on the upper tang behind the trigger. If it is not an exposed hammer, then the model designation is on the bottom, where the receiver meets the mag tube.

Depends on what your shotgun is. If you have one of the older hammered shotguns (exposed hammer), you can decock them the same way you would any other firearm with an exposed hammer - you gently lower the hammer with your thumb. If you have a shotgun which doesn't have an exposed hammer, your only feasible way of going about this is to empty the magazine, be especially certain to ensure that the chamber is empty, and pull the trigger.

This may- I mean MAY be your rifle. It's a model Marlin Model 49 slide action Shotgun. Exposed hammer takedown combined features of the model 42 and 24. It was never in the Marlin Catalogue. It was made between 1925 - 1928.
Hell yes its worth fixing i have a 20 ga . Marlin model 44 and i would not take 500.00 dollars for it.The Marlin model 44 in 20 gauge only was made from 1923-1935.It should be noted that in 1998 Marlin made a statement that all exposed hammer models along with the hammer less models(which you have) should not be fired due to there age and that system failures can and will occur.While a repair to your shotgun is possible,just be advised that these shotguns will probably only handle low brass shells due to age,and condition.
I'm guessing it is a single shot break open shotgun with an exposed hammer. Made sometime after 1900 and worth $50-$100 depending on condition.
Depends on the model, and condition. Model number should be under the receiver, or on the top tang, unless it is a model 1898, which had no markings to indicate model.
You would first need to provide all of the markings found on the gun.
It has a visible hammer (or two).
I have my 12 guage shotgun with hammer and lever with serial no. 15143 Company EM Reilly and co Oxford Street london, i have kept it for my self defense, now i want to know present value of this shotgun and history of the same gun.
We may have a failure to communicate. Almost ALL .22s are rifles, not shotguns (there ARE a very few .22 shotguns, but are quite scarce) And Marlin made several dozen different model .22 rifles. Which model? Bolt action, lever action, semi auto, pump? My Marlin 39A rifle, which has an exposed, external hammer (most are internal) moves through an arc of about an inch.
New England Firearms was a division of Marlin, made under the brand H&R. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H_%26_R_Firearms
if it is the 1878 hammer shotgun made about 1886
plz help me what is the difference between a prime minster and a chief minster
Since Marlin didn't amke a 1899, it is most likely an 1898. These old Marlin shotguns never had a lot of value in good shape, and refinished they would be less. I see very nice ones going in the $200 range, and average or less in the $75-$100 range. I would guess a refinished will bring something in the average range. Marlin sent out a bulletin stating these early exposed hammer shotguns should not be fired, regardless of the ammo used. That has relegated them to wallhangers for most owners. Some diehard fans refuse to accept this, and continue to use these old Marlin pumps at their own risk.
