    Marlin 880 walnut stock cut or pressed checkering?

    I am interested in aquiring a Marlin 880 with a walnut stock.In looking at past auctons on GB it looks like some have cut checkering and some appear to have pressed checkering. Is this correct?
    If so does anyone know what Year Marlin made the change?
    Does anyone have or know of one for sale?
    Thanks!

    Can no one tell me if some are cut checkering and some pressed?

    Sorry. I have 7 series with pressed and 9 series with cut. Never did get a 8 series. Maybe I should?

    I have a 25n which I like but would love to have one with a nice walnut stock like the 880 and of course I'd prefer cut checkering over pressed checkering which it appears some had by looking at completed gunbroker auctions.Just want to verify what it looks like to me that some were cut checkering rather than preesed.

    According to the Blue Book of Gun Values, cut checkering became standard in 1994.

    Thank You Jim.
    I thought the that the ones I have seen pictures of on Gunbroker appeared that some were pressed and some cut.So I'll be looking for a 94 or later.Never cared much for pressed checkering myself.

    Regarding the cut checkering, there are 2 versions of that. Banner style and Fleur-Di-Lis.
    I try to collect the FDL when I find them.

    Don't think I've seen one with the fleur di lis pattern.How uncommon are they?

    I don't know how rare they are. I first saw the FDL cut checkering on the 880 & 881 Marlins.
    They appear now and then on the 983 22wmr. I would love to know the details of those decisions to produce them.

    Yeah, so would I............the FDL's were all cut with a CNC program.
