    Marlin JM Ported Guide Gun years of production? 2001 Only????

    I was discussing Marlins with a fellow at the local gun club. He claims that the Marlin 45-70 ported Guide Gun was only made in 2001! I was under the impression they were a cataloged item available for more than just one year. I am far from a Marlin expert so I was hoping some experts here could clear this up for me.....Thanks in advance for any input!

    I'm at 90% sure that they were made 1999 through 2002... Someone more in the know will need to ring in...

    I have read that the stainless ported 45-70 guide gun was only made in 2001. Mine is a 2001, and the others I've seen were all 2001 models. But I can't verify the stainless was only a one year production.

    As as for the blued ported 45-70, it was made several years.

    The first Marlin Guide Gun (1895G) was sold in 1998 and was available with factory porting (I have a few). This option was available through 2002. The Guide Gun has been in continuous production since 1998 although no longer factory ported.
