Marlin Model 100

Howdy Folks,

I recently came into possession of a Marlin Model 100 rifle. It's a single-shot turnbolt chambered in .22 LR. The stock is dimensioned for adults.

Anyone had any experience with this model? Looks like an entry-level model from many years back, but I'd be interested in knowing more.

The model 100 is your typical Marlin single shot .22.Accurate and reliable.I cant say anything bad about it.

The Marlin 100 was also sold as other brand names such as (Sears) J.C. Higgins Model 103.18 and a few others. The Model 100 was built from the late '30 to the early 60's I think. There are two different cocking knobs depending on early or later build dates.

My J. C. Higgins rifle was my first gun and my dad bought it for me at the Tacoma WA Sears store in the late 50's. Outside of the extractor not always working, it still shoots great. I'll take it to the range occasionally and even with the poor rear sight it will still shoot 1" groups at 50 yards.

There is a Marlin Collector's Association website that may be helpful. There is one curent post in the "Rimfires" section about the Model 100.
