Since you mention a clip,I suppose it is a bolt action.If so, it may be a Stevens.I have one of the Savage/Stevens models.Make sure if you use it to check the safety.As I recall,it works backward like thje older Marlins.
I was given the gun about 25 years ago and was told it was a Stevens(sp??). It works like a champ. Light and fun to shoot. No clip makes it a single shot which I like for my boys (10 yrs. old). Thanks, Boone
