The fact that you mentioned there is no model number or serial number on your rifle makes me wonder if you might
have a Marlin Model A1 .22 semi-auto. Does your rifle have some stamping on the left side of the barrel below the rear
sight: .22 LONG RIFLE ONLY-SMOKELESS GREASED
If so it is the Marlin A1,as this is the only Marlin model that had this stamping.
As far as a clip you can use a clip for a Marlin Model 80,25 etc. "Old Style" clip with some minor modifications to the clip.
I have 3 of the A1's in my collection now,and like you I came to this forum to find out what my first rifle was.
Hope this info helps you.
Just wondered if this photo of an A1 I found on the web looks similar to yours?
Does yours have a stamped steel trigger guard or the molded plastic one?
Here are the photos of the disassembly process of the Marlin A1 1st variation.
(http://www.pbase.com/tigweld/marlin_a1_1st_var) Details to follow in another posting.
Here you go for the disassembly/assembly of the Marlin A1. Note is for the A1 1st variation
which I own.
1)While the receiver/barrel is still in the stock,slide the bolt all the way back to the rear.
While pulling trigger,slowly move bolt forward. This will release the spring pressure on the hammer if the rifle is cocked. This will get away from "Dry Firing" the rifle.
2)Remove the magazine then receiver/barrel from the stock.
3)Remove the receiver bumper/safety retaining screw. Remove safety/safety spring.(http://www.pbase.com/tigweld/image/113470264)
4)Using a large screwdriver or coin,turn out receiver bumper screw counter clockwise a few
5)Turn out the bumper screw slowly by hand the rest of the way. (Caution) it is still under
some spring pressure so remove carefully. (http://www.pbase.com/tigweld/image/113470281)
6)After the bumper screw is out you'll see the action disc and the recoil/hammer springs.
7)Remove the action disc and springs from the receiver.
8 )Slide the bolt all the way back to the rear of the action slot.
9)Grasping bolt handle with thumb and index finger,pull handle straight out from bolt.
10)While pulling trigger,push on bolt face with finger and push bolt out of the receiver.
11)Bolt and hammer out of the receiver. (http://www.pbase.com/tigweld/image/113470540)
Note the holes in the back end of the bolt and hammer. Recoil spring,hammer spring and
legs of the action disc must be lined up with these during reassembly.
Just, what I've been looking for...........GREAT PHOTOS.
Will post reassembly instuctions in next posting.
