I have carried a Marlin 22 magnum rifle on my loader tractor for twenty years or more. I really beat the Heck out that old gun but it would still shoot pretty good. I liked the 22 magnum as the ammo is cheap but you still have enough punch to get ground hogs or coyotes if you are close.
Well tonight while feeding some 1000 lb replacement heifers, one of them knocked the gun out of the sabered I carry it on the tractor in. I was rushing trying to get through a gate before they ran out and did not see the gun had gotten knocked out. I ran over it with the rear tire of the tractor. Bent the barrel and wiped out the action.
I can't find any model numbers on the old gun. All of the years riding around on the tractor has rubbed all the writing off the gun. I bought it at a pawn shop auction 30 years ago. I think I gave $75 for it. It had some surface rust on it then. Like I said I beat the snot out of it. All it ever got for care was I would clean it up a few times each year and oil it all back up. It has road on my loader tractor and that has 15,000 hours on it.
So my question is. What model of rifle could I find to match what I had?? I would like a used older gun of a better named brand but would conceder a new no-name brand. this gun is not a life or death thing.
