    Marlin-Ballard No. 3F Fine Gallery Rifle. Cal. 22. Serial number 36402. 30" heavy octagonal barrel, 7/8" across the flats. A beautiful gallery rifle featuring a case-hardened frame, full loop lever, double triggers, crescent butt plate, globe-type front sights, tang rear sight, and walnut butt and grip. The left side of the receiver is stamped "MARLIN FIRE ARMS CO. NEW HAVEN CT. U.S.A./ PATENTED. FEBRUARY. 9. 1875./ BALLARD'S PATENT. NOV. 5. 1861.". The rifle retains about 95% of the original blue on the barrel and nearly all the case hardened finish on the frame; the bore is immaculate and the stock displays only modest wear from use. This is a superb example and would be difficult to upgrade.
