Marlin firearms dating
Currently, the model with a 24-inch barrel is only available in .30-30 Winchester.The Model 336 is currently produced by Remington Arms.You can determine if it is a pre-1913 or later by comparing information given under Grades of Shotguns on this website.With a little time and perseverance, you should be able to determine the year of manufacture, but remember that all serial numbers are not in the records.You will need to know if the shotgun is pre-1913 or later gun because some of the early serial numbers were repeated in later years.In fact, some serial numbers were used five times between 18.
Microgroove rifling is described in the patent as having 5 grooves for every 1/10 of an inch bore diameter, and that the driving side of each land would be "tangentially disposed" to prevent accumulating fouling in use.
I hope this helps all Marlin owners:--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Marlin Year of Manufacture Marlin year of manufacture maybe determined from the following list of letter/numeral prefixs to the serial number; this coding only applies to serialized rifles:1946-C1947-D1948-E1949-F1950-G1951-H1952-J1953-K1954-L1955-M1956-N1957-P1958-R1959-S1960 (August)-1961-U1961 (August)-1962-V1963-W1964-Y,-Z1965-AA1966-AB1967-AC1968-AD, -681969-691970-701971-711972-72Starting in 1973, the year of manufacture maybe determined by subtracting the first two digits of the serial number from 100: Example: SN 2512345 would have been made in 1975 [100 - 25 = 75] and SN 94365295 would have been made in 2006 [ 100 - 94 = 06 (2006) ]. I bought mine in 1965, used it a few years for Ground Hog hunting, and stored it away. I have a Model 60SS that I determined that the Manufacure year is 1996. I would like to know if there is a way to determine the month of manufacture.
For Marlin Rimfire Rifles [non-serialized]: From 1962 thru 1968 Marlins rimfire rifles (other than the 39 series lever actions) used a two letter date code that was stamped on the barrel. It was fairly accurate, a great mechanism, and still a beautiful gun. Thank you, Frank I have a rifle like dds that does not have the markings that it should have, it's a marlin glenfield mod. that along with the are marked on the left side of the barrel. My serial number is behind the hammer right where the stock joins the gun.
This date code was usually stamped on the left side of the barrel just in front of the receiver. Frankm there is a two letter code for month and year on 22's from 60-68 I do not know if it was on any other years, scroll down at the link below and you will find the list.
