Re: Marlin markings on Fulton Special?
You nailed it, and your photos are much better than mine. Thank you. Donít know date of manufacture. Serial number is F82870 with an S below it. 12 ga. Piece is Fulton Special with correct engraving, and butt stock with pistol grip cap, but featured no checkering. Forend is checkered but displays wood repair (plug) done at time of manufacture. Rib has cosmetic defect due to tool failure at time of production. While it is functionally sound, it appears to have been assembled with suspect parts, or perhaps left over components during repair. Iíd be interested in any and all comments.
