Been lurking on this website for quite some time researching my first rifle purchase. Lots of great info here. Originally born and raised in Milan, Italy and moved to California about 14 years ago.
Coming from a country where owning guns is nearly impossible, I had to go ahead...
I have read a many of articles on the JM proof mark and mostly all them talked about the JM mark that is within an oval.
Is this the only way the JM mark appeared ?
On my 2000 1895M there is JM mark that is not within any oval, it is just plain JM and is stamped on the
left side of the barrel...
