Best I can do is tell you that your rifle was made in the early 1970's. Maybe 1973??? When Marlin reintroduced the Model 1895 in 1972 they started out with a B prefix for the model . Brophy's Marlin book is not clear at all on the first 4 years of production dates. In 1977 the Model 1895 used the same serial numbering system as the other models and is easy to determine the year of manufacture. Parley
