Still wondering if these guns either 12 or 10ga. are steel shot compatible? Thanks, Bob.

You would have to e-mail Marlin to be sure they could handle steel. They weren't specifically advertised as such and the last ones were made in 1998? or around that point, steel shot wasn't mandatory everywhere for waterfowl at that point. My 1996 Marlin 55GDL doesn't appear to have a chrome lined barrel on it.

I'll email marlin, I was just curious. When I was a kid my dad had a friend that owned a 12ga model and I remember him dropping a crow dead at 90 paces. I would consider getting a 10ga model for geese if I could shoot steel. Thanks.

Had this conversation with Marlin's techline a few years ago, no Marlin Shotgun was ever designed to shoot steel.

You only need a super goose gun if you plan to be shooting super geese. :lol:

But it's even easier if you have a unique gun.

Then unique up on them.

I had the good fortune of owning the only Marlin Super Goose my dealer ever had & couldn't sell. So in a shrewd business deal it was mine.On the opener I killed 2 Canada's with it,one shot kills. And no I didn't hit them with the 36"barrel.I was 25 yrs. old then and still can remember the pain when firing it. After the third day of the season (in another shrewd business deal) I traded up to a Franchi AL48, 3" magnum,32" Full bbl. My Uncle said" If you keep buying these flag poles I am ordering you a flag. FAST FORWARD-2002-In another shrewd business move,I trade a NY Yankees jacket for a Marlin Super Goose. As I bring it in the house,my wife see's it and say's"Did they at least give you the flag with this one - Honey? ". Only to find out from Marlin that these guns are not steel shot compliant. Later, I sold this one to a guy for his rec room wall. Truely,one of America's past great LONG guns.

Yes they offered checkering on the 512 Slugmaster with a wood stock, and the last year of production the shotguns had a synthetic stock which had checkering on it.

Fond memories! My Dad had a Marlin Goose Gun back in the '70s. Killed my first goose with it.
