Is the date of manufacture for a Glenfield determined the same way as a Marlin? This is for a Model 60.
Model 1893 .30-30 ca. 1901
Model 336C .30-30 ca. 2002
Model 80E .22 ca. 1936
Model 60DLX .22 ca. 2010

As far as I know, yes.Originally Posted by utbrowningman
The only thing wrong with gun ownership is lack of participation.

i dont understand why marlins serial numbers decrease as you look at newer models. I have a model 60 the number is 20xxxxxx. I supose it was made in 1980. Why is it that a gun made in 81 has the num. 19xxxxxx?
You subtract the first 2 numbers from 2000 to get the YOM 2000 - 19 = 1981

Year of manufacture can be determined from 1946-1968 by the following letter/numeral prefixes: 1946-C, 1947-D, 1948-E, 1949-F, 1950-G, 1951-H, 1952-J, 1953-K, 1954-L, 1955-M, 1956-N, 1957-P, 1958-R, 1959-S, 1960-T, 1961-U, 1962-V, 1963-W, 1964-Y,Z, 1965-AA, 1966-AB, 1967-AC, 1968-AD, 1969-69, 1970-70, 1971-71, 1972-72. Starting in 1973, the year can be determined by subtracting the first 2 numbers of the serial number from 100.
so if my serial number on a non-Glenfield model starts with 08 it is a 1992 model?
