We read everyday about the JM stamp. From the almost non existent, to ones in an oval . Left side , right side , even under the forearm.
So show us what ya got. The Good The Bad & The Ugly.
I have a 1970 Marlin 1894 saddle ring 44mg in near mint shape. I bought it from original owner and know for a fact it was low round count gun. I never paid attention to JM stamp until I got on forum. I was aware of Remlins but that didn't affect me because I don't buy even JM with safety. My 94 has no JM stamp visable, unless it may be under forearm. I know history of this gun and know it has original barrel. It's very nice gun but not one I can't do without. A guy was wanting to trade for it and wanted it bad and backed out when no JM stamp was on barrel. Up to that point I didn't know it wasn't stamped. Didn't really care since gun is 1970 model. If stamp is not under forearm is there other ways to proove it's original?
