i found one of these in a local pawn shop for a 100 bucks in decent shape. i guess im crazy cause this 36" full choke barreled bolt action shotgun is awesome to me. my grandfather had one when i was a kid and ive always remembered how long that gun was and ive got to have one. i know its not practical and single shot slow between shots but it oughta be a good conversation piece and a decent squirrel gun lol. anyone with experience, info or just an opinion feel free to comment. at least it aint a turkish gun!

A friend of mine purchased one of the Marlin bolt shotguns back in I believe the late 80s.It was a 10 gauge and if I remember rightly he paid$100 at a Canadian Tire Store.

It would have been a 12 guage, the 10 gauge went of production sometime in the 1970's. I bought mine at work(CTC Dieppe) for $75 new with a 2 year warranty when Chretien sucked up to Montreal and brought in bill C-68 in 1997. Atlantic Firearms brought the barrel down to 25.75" and it made a nice partridge gun, patterns litttle better than Imp. Cylinder.

I use to have one of those Super goose gun, 10 gauge 36" full choke barrel bolt action with a removable magazine. I sold it after one season, I could not hit the side of barn with mine, it did not fit me.

A hundred bucks i s about right for it, I think I paid $120 for mine new in 1975

It was the 10 gauge but it could have been earlier than the 80s that he bought it or it might have been one that had been in the Canadian Tire Store for awhile and did not sell.

Well, OK, I did shoot sporting clays with it one time. I hit the first bird of each pair fairly regularly, but I didn't do so well on the second bird! :roll:

Nice post that brought back a lot of memories.

As a kid I vividly remember looking at those (which of course we couldn't afford) in the mail order catalogs such as either Montgomery Ward, Penney's, or Sears.

In those days, the mail would just deliver a gun to your house, again provided you could afford it.

Mail ordering of firearms still exists in Canada. The only difference is that you have already gone through security check, the firearm is registered to you and you have to show ID to the mail clerk to take possession of the firearm when it arrives.

Nobody is going to shoot on my squad with one of those things. Excessive laughter destroys my concentration.

Years ago four of us went duck hunting and had a stand-up blind along a small river. We were to meet at the blind. Three of us were there early and #4 then came crashing through the woods banging this very long bbl against every tree he could find. He was very proud of his Marlin Goose Gun, but we made him stand on the other side of the river anyway.

That may be why mine now only sports 25.75" of barrel. 36" seems a little long for chasing Grouse.

One of the guys in the hunting club my family was in during the 1970's, had a Marlin Goose Gun. I remember the other members kidding him about tripping deer during dog drive hunts rather than firing a load of buckshot!
