    911xxxxx or 912xxxxx are Connecticut made Marlins with a JM stamp. Should be fine, I have several friends with 2009 JM rifles and they're good. 918xxxxx is a Remington/Marlin New York made rifle and will not have a JM stamp.

    Some of the early RemMarlins were assembled in New York with genuine Connecticut parts, I've seen them and some are perfect, some not so good. It's up to the buyer to inspect closely, it's on an individual basis. BTW, my two close friends with the 2009 JM rifles report excellent function and accuracy. I own a 2012 rifle made from Connecticut parts, and while function and accuracy are top notch, it had multiple build/cosmetic issues that I had to correct.

    Production in North Haven was suspended in Spring of 2010. BATFE authorized New York Remington to use the 91xxxxxx numbers until the very end of 2011.

    I would probably be a little Leary about this one. Only because he is the owner of the rifle. If he were selling it for someone else I could understand him not being able to answer the JM question. You didn't mention if this was a conversation over the phone, by email in person or on a forum. If the sale was going to be in person then there are no worries. You will see it when you pay for it. However if you are mailing the money. I think Mike gave you the best advice. If you feel something is wrong, it probably is.

    I wouldn't buy a Marlin made after about 2004 unless I plan modifying it or reselling. JM stamp means nothing to me because Marlin started slowly making crap well before the RemLin change.

    Have him send you more detailed pictures. Maybe a short video/facetime of some rounds being cycled through it. $700 is reasonable for the gun with a scope.

    This is owned by a older gentleman,,,no clue what a JM stamp is,,,,tried to explain it to him on the phone and txt,,,,,,,,serial # is 910....he bought it new,,,,just trying to thin out his collection,,,,,if it was a local deal then no problem,,i could inspect it in hand,,,,but we are about 2.5 hrs from each other....I hate to meet and then its not what i thought it should be....I have several pictures of which it looks really good,,,,but a good picture is not like when you are holding it in your own hands......i know a 910 is probably ok...i know they were inspected before they left the factory.....this would be a hand me down rifle to my kids......just cautious of the last year or so of production....some may be perfect,some may not,,,but that may go for all....if it was a later serial number then no problem....i may have to pass on it

    Really? I’d like to hear more about this, maybe form some of the Marlin employees at the time. My 2008 1894ss is perfect and JM stamped with a later s/n than the ops.

    If you drive to meet him half way and it's no deal then all you have lost is your time. I know, easy for my to say.
