The Model 55 S was a 12 gauge produced from 1973 until 1979 by Marlin. This is one that has been in the family since the 70's and its time to pass on to someone else who can appreciate it. It has a 2 3/4 to 3 inch chamber. Big enough for 3 inch slugs if you are looking for a home defense shotgun or want to put a big piece of lead downrange. The wood is in great condition - only a very minor scratch here or there. The blue has a few small areas of superficial surface rust - but nothing major. The bolt is clean and smooth. Magazine is tight. Signature Marlin Gold trigger. Recoil Pad. $100.00 Thanks for looking. Also have lots of 12 GA ammo if buyer is interested. Would consider trading for a Hi Point 40 S&W. FTF in Charleston area please.
