    Finding out year Marlin/Glenfield made

    Found this cool info to determine age of marlin/glenfield rifles made in 1973 and newer models. Mine was serial number 270---61. According to the link, you take the first two digits and subtract from 100 to get your year of manufacture. In my case, it turned out to be 1973!!! So my Glenfield 30-30 is officially 35 years old! Cool, eh?

    Hey I just bought a glenfield Mod 30A in 30-30 and the serial number is 72002321. The condition is pristine and I'm trying to figure out the age of the darn thing. The trick where you subtract from 100 doesn't seem to apply seeing that this thing would be made in 1928. Its got the JM stamp if that helps with the dating. Any help would be appreciated. Pics coming soon.

    For a few years--the first two numbers indicated the manufacturing year without using the subtraction method (100-xx=year). Your fine Glenny was made in 1972.

    Hey there Eng thank you. Do these rifles hold any value besides what its worth to me? I know they aren't the fanciest things in the world but its always nice to get a good deal without trying.Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 8.06.48 PM.pngScreen Shot 2015-10-05 at 8.06.55 PM.png

    Does anyone have a list with the first and last serial numbers produced each year? My Glenfield is a 1980 vintage, but I'd be curious to know more exactly when it was made.

    Here is what you need to educate yourself. We are lucky to have a member "Schtoolee" that did the work on this.

    OC--most of these Glennys are going for 200-400 bucks depending on where you live. There are a few Glenny models that will run you more--like the Glenfield Model 30 in 35 Rem--a very rare rifle. The other is the Glenfield Model 30GT 30-30, a straight stocked, shorter barreled model which are referred to as a "Texan" model--whether they are a Glenfield or a Marlin. The Texans always come with a straight handled buttstock and sometimes a shorter barrel than the 20 inch barrel normally found on the regular Marlin carbines. I consider the Glenfield to be better than the regular Marlin carbine due to the end cap configuration. All my Glennys and Marlins with the end cap shoot tighter than my regular two barrel banded carbines.

    As you can see---I am a big believer in the Glenfields.
