Marlin .30-30 octagon barrel lever action rifle
Hi folks, I am trying to find out some information about my father's Marlin .30-30 octagon barrel rifle. I tried the Marlin serial # lookup website and they said they couldn't identify it. Serial # is 372992. In a previous thread talking about these rifles, someone said to "look above the tang" for the model #, but I've looked all over this gun and can't find any other numbers. Can you tell me more exactly where to look? My other question is, is there any kind of scope mount for these rifles? My eyes are getting to where I can't focus on the sights and the target at the same time, and am really getting reliant on a scope. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
