How Your Rifle is Made
Your rifle has been made to Marlin's strictest standards of safety and reliability. It has
been proof tested with a high pressure load, function fired, and checked for accuracy
at the factory. Built with tradition and engineered to last, your rifle is the product of over
135 years of Marlin technology.
Before You Use This Firearm
It is very important that you read and understand this manual before using your new
rifle. Warnings should be read and heeded carefully. Also follow the safety rules listed
in "Marlin's Guide to Gun Safety", printed on this page.
? WARNING: Marlin firearms are designed and manufactured to handle standard factory-
loaded ammunition which conforms to SAAMI (Sporting Arms and Ammunition
Manufacturers' Institute Inc.) standards with dependability and safety. Due to the
many bullet and load options available, the element of judgement involved, the skill
required, and the fact that serious injuries have resulted from dangerous handloads,
Marlin does not make any recommendations with regard to handloaded ammunition.
? WARNING: Your rifle should not be assembled, used or disassembled without fully
reading and understanding the instructions in this manual.
? WARNING: It is a violation of federal law to alter or deface the serial number of any firearm.
