I have an old marlin Model 80 DL .22 RF marked for short, long and long rifle I picked up in the mid-80s for $10 at a garage sale. It looks almost like an economy target rifle with crude aperture sights and weighing between 7-8 lbs but I do not believe it is. I enjoyed shooting it a few years and then the magazine exploded and it has set in the closet since. I recently got off my duff finding and ordering 2 magazines to reactivate it.

Near as I can tell it Marlin produced it from late 30s until the late 50s. Anyone own one and care to commentor know a bit of its history?

The Marlin Model 80DL falls into the category of "good quality inexpensive weapons with little or no collector interest". The Marlin Model 80DL was made from 1940 through 1965.

I believe you are right. It has been 10 years or so since I shot it but remember it as accurate. At 7 plus lbs it is certainly easy to steady and the trigger in pretty darn decent.
