I bought a 1894GBL last year and realy love it.

I would like to buy a standard Guide gun but would prefer a older one made in Connecticut.

I looking in several gun shops for new guns/ old stock.

How can I tell where it is made. I understand the barrels are still marked Connecticut.

Look for the 'JM' proof mark on the barrel near the receiver. (Made in North Haven, CT)

Newer ones still have the North Haven, CT stamp, along with a 'REP' proof mark (Remington)

just realized you said guide gun. check out gun broker, guns america, auction arms, and the classified section here on Marlin owners.

That's a 1895SS (sporting stock) and a mint one at that . I wouldn't cut that down. I would leave it just like that!

I bet the price goes much higher than what it's at now!
