I'm not sure of the age so not sure if it needs to be shipped to a FFL.

    Well you should post the serial number and we might be able to tell you exactly when it was made--if it was made prior to 1898 then you shouldn't need anything other than a signed copy of a drivers license to prove the person is over 18---I'd also be cautious of WHERE you send it because some cities,states etc have their own rules when it comes to firearms-even antique ones.--I also think that is a 1898 Model-I looked all over for a 1896 model and cannot find one--the patent dates are just that, patent dates.

    Well, FWIW, you know it was made AFTER 1896![:p]Unless made in 1898 or earlier (and yeah, I THINK that is an Mdl 1898 gun in your auction) it is not LEGALLY an antique, and will need to go to an 01 Dealer FFL, OR to an 03 C&R FFL. A serial number check can tell if it is 1898- if 1899 or later, FFL reqd. BTW, Marlin reccommends that these NOT be fired. Nice old gun- good luck w/ auction.

    These are not very safe to shoot anyways. Marlin issued a warning on these years back advising people to not shoot them if they buy them.
