Lt. Col. William S. Brophy, USAR, Ret. 672 pages. 8Â½"x11". Hardbound. Covering the history and development of Marlin from 1863 to the present, this extraordinary, definitive book is the culmination of over 15 years of extensive research into the Marlin company - so detailed and accurate that it nearly defies description. Divided into 3 sections, the first discusses the evolution of the Marlin Company, the men who developed it and have made it so successful. Section 2, comprising nearly two-thirds of the book, covers all of the details on all of the guns by model - the length, stock, choke, weight, dates and serial number, caliber, prices, parts lists, exploded views, takedown and everything else, both sporter and military. Section 3 covers Marlin's many other projects - belt buckles, handcuffs, razor blades, baby buggies, plus the Marlin advertising, gun inspections, ammunition, patents, sights, and on and on. There are over 1,900 beautifully detailed illustrations and photos, with close-ups, sectionalized views, patent drawings. Brophy, well known in the firearms field for his unquestioned expertise and 5 classic books on guns, helped charter the Marlin Collectors Association, and was editor of The Marlin Collector, and Senior Technical Manager and Historian of The Marlin Firearms Company.

Fantastic lesson in history!!!
I've owned this book for over 5 years and always refer back to it for history or specific info on older firearms. I only wish it was updated to todays stats. If I remember correctly, mine dates back to 1983 on certain rifles. Still an excellent book and worth the price.
