    JM stamp

    Through my journey here today I stumbled across someone who touched on a stamping on the left side of the barrel, near the chamber end, stamped "JM" in a little circle, this stands for John Marlin. Does this stamp have any signifigant meaning? Do newer models have this stamping? also mine has north haven conn. I understand that even though it may not be made there they can still use the old stamp. would this otherwise have any thing to do with quality?

    If it has the JM it is a Marlin not a rem made gun.

    It's the old Marlin proofmark.

    The REP on Remington made guns is Remington's proofmark.

    Re: JM stamp

    You will find the REP on the right hand side of the barrel near the receiver....Remingtons mark and seal of quality

    Hey there 30/30man -- Your rifle will have one OR the other. Toss out the first four digits of your serial number and we can help with a manufacture date. Best regards. Wind

    Re: JM stamp

    ive figured its a 1974 model since there is no prefix letter. 2608xxxx are the first four.

    Re: JM stamp

    JM designates that the rifle was proof tested in North Haven. This would also mean that the rifle was assembled in North Haven.

    For the most part I would agree with that statement, however when Remington took over, Marlin was making barrels for stock which had the JM stamp but Remington used with blessings from the ATF. Now whether Remington put their "proofmark" on that barrel from the Ilion plant is another question...I'm sure they probably did. Mr fixit

    Re: JM stamp

    Mr. Fixit,
    I have been examining this gun now for a week and have been unable to locate any other "proof" mark than the JM. not that it means much to me. it also says "the marlin firearms co. North Haven Conn." but i also understand that also may be a printing used after the move. i will check into it some more. thanks
