A spanner wrench was provided, but a notch was machined into the knurled locking nut for use with a coin to help lock the barrel to the receiver.
The buckhorn-type sight was adjustable, but the front sight proved to be vague. We would have preferred mounting a scope. The receiver provided a 3/8-inch rail, but a Weaver size cut would have made it easier to find suitable rings.
We think the Papoose is a good name for Marlin’s little breakdown gun. The barrel is in its own compartment just below the stock. We didn’t see any loss of precision by repeated breakdown and reassembly. The Papoose matched the Ruger for best single group at 50 yards.
