I have finally got some spare time, and I finally finished the update to the Marlin Year code, Production dates, and Ser# on 1 sheet. PDF. This was Ver.8.

This one is Ver.12 , I have changed it around a few times since the last one. This now has the Date codes and I hope all Marlin models and there production dates from 1870-2010.
I don't plan on adding any Remlin.

You will find guns dated the year before from the post production
,and there will be some made after the gun was cut from the line.

But I just went with what the catalogs showed. I did add some non cataloged item and they will have NC after them.

There is 3 sheets now. One is mainly dating the guns and some production numbers for 1881,1888,1889,1891's and production years for the pistols and Ballards.
The next 2 sheets are the rest of the Marlin guns and there production years.Mostly Center-fire on page 1 and rim-fire and shotguns on page 2

I want give thanks to Brophy,Flayderman,44-40 Willy,Swany,Gunhugger,Six_Gunz,Dawei,Parly Bear,Don Anderson come to mind. I am sure there are more, will have to look back on my note.

Anyway look them over, print them out, and if you see any that I missed, let me know. If I didn't miss something, I will be very surprised.
They should all fit on a letter sized sheet, but you might have to let the printer downsize it a bit to get all of it on the sheet.

A ( * ) is put next to new or fixed model on this updated sheet. Starting with the 12/24/13 update.

Another update forgot about the single shot 12 ga shotguns. Added to page 2, revision 9-13-12

Anyone else spot anything I missed? Let me know so I can fix it before it goes to the Reference Library. Thanks

Thank you. That is a lot of good information and looks like a lot of hard work. Either mine is not listed or I don't know where to look for the A or the S. I have a Marlin slide action 20 gauge. All I've been able to find is Mod. 44. no A or S. The serial number is in the 5000 range. Can you tell me what the A or S stands for or where to look on the gun. I have searched all over the internet and can find just model 44. I would like to know the age. Thank you.

Hard to say exactly when it was made, other than in the dates I have listed, because Marlin probably used the same set of numbers to ser# other shotguns at the time. But as to the A and S on the model 44.
You wont find the A or S on the gun, only Model 44.
The A was for the standard grade gun and the S was for a Special grade gun. Here is a couple pages from the 1923 catalog. Pg 19 gives a description of the S and pg. 20 of the A.

Thank you so much Schtoolee. That is exactly what I needed. With this I found out I have the A model and a pretty close age within 10 or 11 years. I know the shotgun is not worth a lot but I do like the older guns. I am new to this forum and Thanks to people like you that spend so much time and effort to help us all out. Thank you again.

Update to page 1:pcguru:

10/14/12 Page 1-- Changed Model 93 end date to 1936, Changed Model 455 from 1956-58 to 1955-59. Also highlighted few items in red, were it states, ( Not Prod.)


Noticed that model 93 was still listed on a Nov. 1936 price sheet. Spotted I was wrong on the Model 455. And figured I should highlight "Not Prod." since I was updating anyway.

thanks

My son just inherited my Grandfather's model 1936 30-30. Your data sheet helped with some of the research. He's going to clean it and continue using it for Whitetail in WI.

Excellent work Schtoolee. I scoured where I could, but couldn't find anything on the Davidson's Limited Series. I'm particularly looking for information on the Limited I-V .45-70 and 1894 Cowboy Limited issues. Do you have anything for them or did I overlook them anywhere?

Thanks!
