    JM Stamp

    What does the JM stamp on the barrel mean?

    Just a trademark. Stands for John Marlins's initials.

    It is the "symbol for accuracy" per Marlin Ads

    Wrong!................The JM on the left side of the barrel near the receiver is the PROOF MARK, that indicates the rifle has been sucessfully fired in the "proofing box" using a SAAMI proof load. The rifle must be capable of maintaining proper head space under the ignition pressure of the proof load. The head space is measured before, and after the test.
    All Marlins are proofed prior to being packaged for the consumer.

    Re: JM Stamp

    Yes it is a proof mark. I mistakenly wrote trademark. Is still John Marlin's initials.

    Thanks for the kind words, Mr Fixit............I look in here as much as I can, but haven't posted too much lately.

    I spent the last two long weekends in VT. I guess you could say I got "1/2" a 4 pointer on opening day morning.........My partener hit it first, it ran by me, I didn't know it was hit, and I knocked it down with the little '95CBA........he claimed the deer..........He's my cousin, so I still got some venison from it.

    Last week, on friday morning at about 11 a.m. I harvested a nice male coyote, at about 60 yards with the '95 CBA........ I'd say he weighed about 38-40lbs, (we had no scale).........That CBA ain't the right rifle to shoot coyotes with.......Too much bullet!
    I've got it at the "stuffers" now.........he says I'll get a nice shoulder mount and a tail out of it !......there's not much left to really work with, between the shoulders and the tail .....Oh, well,.......its better than nothing at all......
    Over all, it was a good season in VT........saw some old friends, and spent some time in the woods.............
    If you hunted, I hope you had a good season too.

    Best Regards,

    Tom

    Re: JM Stamp

    Tomray.....good going on the deer....really good going on shooting the coyote.
    I coyote hunt on a regular basis here in Wisconsin with my .223 NEF. If I am fortunate enough to see a coyote this deer season...he is mine !! This deer season, I can use a centerfire (Marlin 35 Rem) in my area of Wisconsin for deer. Before is was just shotgun slugs. Nice going and Happy Thanksgiving.....Wm. J. W
