headspace measurement changes (after so many rounds) ? Or theres a safety pin to keep it from backing off?

I will preface this by saying the Murphy lurks everywhere waiting to create trouble. But the short answer to your questions are no and no. Enjoy shooting and don't worry.

Think about how the gun is constructed. The barrel threads into the receiver, and the locknut threads onto the barrel. As the barrel and locknut screw in the same direction, the headspace can not change (i.e. the barrel unscrews a bit) unless the locknut moves. The locknut, as Olbiker said, is on pretty tight. There's no way one is going to come loose through shooting.

This is a similar set up to Savage guns .........I have rebarreled 2 savage actions and to get a barrel loose takes 3 strong men and an act of God so fire away and feel safe

The barrel nut on the marlins are installed at the factory by a 800# gorilla. So, no, they wont shoot loose.
Yaaa-haaa-haaaa! That's what we Savage nuts thought about the Savage barrel nuts. Come to find
out, they get installed by a couple of 120(-) pound women!!
