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.

How can you determine the model for a Marlin 12 gauge pump shotgun?

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.

How do you uncock a shotgun?

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.

1908 marlin model 44 20 gauge pump action shotgun is worth fixing?

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.

How far does the hammer on a 22 cal marlin shot gun pull back to cock?

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.

What is current value of a Marlin 1898 or 1899 pump shotgun that has been refinished?

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.
