Just got my first Marlin. Trying to figure out it’s history as best I can. Has a 917xxxxx serial number. Also stamped “The Marlin Firearms Co North Haven, CT”. It look like it has an “x” and a “71” stamp on the left side. Then the right side has a “REP” in a circle and next to it what looks like a “74”.
At the end of the day all that matters is how well this rifle shoots. I’m just curious to know about it. I’ve attached a few pictures of the stamp marks. Thanks I’m advance!
