Model 1898

John Marlin's first commercial shotgun, called the Marlin Repeating Shotgun.

The release of this product followed several years behind the commercial success of other gunmakers in the shotgun market. Serial numbers are found on the lower front of the receiver, with approximately 90,000 made. The receiver is blued, and other grades of the Model 1898 were added in 1905.
