Ray,Bigman2 said:I was wondering about the rifles being built now also. Are the new Marlins that are on the market now, do they have the serial numbers on the side of the receiver? I have seen a couple of the boxes the rifles come in, and the first two letters are MR. Is this another way to tell the new rifles? Thanks.RAy

Tomray: On the assembly process changes you noted that are applicable to 2009 guns; was this transition made during the year so that some of 2009 gun production was done under the original "gunsmith" format; or is the "cell" assembly process applicable to all 2009 production?
Re: numbers...........No Idea...........Rachethead said:So then, some of the "91" prefix model Marlins were indeed made "the old fashioned way"? My "91" prefix 338MX is an excellent rifle and has a low serial number, 91000966; were frames numbered in a numeral sequence beginning at #1 and moving upwards towards infinity so that a low number denotes early production in the old numbering system? Do you have any idea as to where serial numbers stood when Remington switched to the "cell" production method?
