    "New" Marlin 782 .22 Magnum - When was it made ?

    Just got a "new" Marlin bolt action 782 .22 Magnum, SN 256222xx, nice walnut stock with a design, a sort of scroll, for the checkering. Very good looking, clean, sharp bore, gold plated trigger. Any information on the date is appreciated, as well as any of your experience with these rifles.
    This is the 3rd Marlin I own right now...I have an old Glenfield Model 25 .22 LR and an old 336 SC in .35 Rem from 1961.
    Hope to shoot them sometime this weekend, will take this one groundhog hunting a little later.
    I have owned many different Marlins, from .22 to .45-70, and never had a bad one.

    Thanks.

    1975

    The serial number tells you the year made: 25.....

    Take 100-25=75 I.E. 1975.

    Awesome rifle! I wish I could find a good deal on one as I have a 780 in .22LR that I bought like new but used and it would be nice to have a match in .22WMR.

    "New" Marlin 782 .22 Magnum - When was it made ?

    I had one made a little earlier. Traded it for a snowmobile. The snowmobile was junk a year later. Wonder who's shooting the rifle now days? Beautiful rifle isn't it! Don't sell it.

    Thank you for your responses. I had also posted about this rifle on another forum-Everybody seems to like this rifle, and several said "Don't sell it."
    I put a Simmons 3 x 9 scope on it using Weaver .22 mounts. It cleaned up very nice-great looking walnut.

    I hope to shoot it today.

    Thanks for your help.

    "New" Marlin 782 .22 Magnum - When was it made ?

    Shot it last week. 5 shots into about a nickle size group at 50 yards, 5 shots in 9 and 10 ring at 100 yards in a varying wind from the left. I will work on the scope a little, and try again, but I'm very happy with this rifle. It will go with me for groundhogs at out to about 125 yards.
