Marlin's first shotgun was a pump action, made in 1898. Marlin never made a double barrel shotgun in their entire history. However, Marlin did own the LC Smith shotgun company after it went bankrupt in 1945. That made them technically a "Marlin" product. If your gun is a 1800's double barrel, it is not a Marlin. Marlin did make the Model 90 over/under, but it was not in the 1800's. Please list ALL markings on the shotgun so we can properly identify it.
Best left to a gun smith.
It will be marked on the barrel
Wesson Fire Arms did. Values can range from 500-10000 USD dependig on EXACTLY what you have and how it is marked along with condition.
model stamped inside cylinder housing near barrel.
Yes. Go to lcsmith.org . There is more info there than you could possibly ever remember.
A double barrelled surname is created by inserting a hyphen between two names e.g. Martin and Smith becomes Martin-Smith.
To figure out the actual value of a LC Smith shotgun (Elsie) you need to gather as much information about the gun your either selling or looking to buy. Aside from the different gauges you have to consider barrel length, single or double trigger, grade and so on. LC Smith shotguns were originally built by LC Smith but later sold to Hunter Arms and finally Marlin. Gather all the above informaiton you can about your gun and start searching the internet action sites like "Gunsamerica", Gunbroker, GunsAmerica and so on. Look at some of the ones on there and compair them to yours and that should put you pretty darn close.
go to gun smith
I have been looking for the same answer I found one with a broken stock in my grandfathers attick, did you ever figure it out?
Should be stamped on the barrel, if not, you should take it to a competant gun smith to have it checked
A shotgun made for Smith and Wesson, sold under the Smith and Wesson name.
It should be marked on the barrels near the breach.
It depends on the grade they made many different grades. Look on the inside of breach or bottom of barell and it will be stamped with a letter such as F (field) grade etc erc
From 4000 to 7000 depending on condition. Nothing under 3500
That all depends on the shotguns overall condition,and bore condition also.
Go to lcsmith.org. Scroll onto shotguns, click on history. From 1888 to 1945 the Hunter Arms Company manufactured the LC Smith shotgun. In 1945, Marlin bought Hunter and made the LC Smith until 1951. And again from 1968 until 1973.
The model 29-2 started production in 1961, thought the barrel length was reduced from 6.5" to 6" in 1979. Based on the serial number, yours was manufactured between 1977-1978.
Can't be answered without a DETAILED description of ALL markings, barrel length, finish, grips, sights, box, accessories, papers, condition.
