If your rifle was repaired at the Marlin/Remington factory it should be stamped like the picture below...

The few I've seen personally had the magnaflux stamp on the left side of the barrel...

I own a .44 Mag Rem/Marlin 1894 manufactured in May 2012 that had the chamber a few .0001'' out of round. The cases would hang up if full power loads were fired. Cast loads at 1150 ft/sec extracted just fine. The original chamber was cut with a worn out reamer. I sent it to Ilion in Spring of 2014, they finish reamed the chamber and beveled the chamber mouth very nicely. There are no repair or inspection marks, just the original KG on the left and REP on the right. I'm glad I kept this rifle, it will put all its shots on target hot or cold, groups very well, feeds and ejects smooth as Dairy Queen.

I've seen one Remlin 1895 that was repaired and it had the original date stamps and the magnaflux stamp on the left side of the barrel and the repaired date stamps but none of the inspector stamps...
