Howdy. I picked up an 1894CB45, 10 shot, 24 inch Octagon barrel, recently. I got curios about the date of manufacture. When I went to the marlin site for lookup it did not recognize the serial number ... 98XXXXXX which is on the left side of the receiver rather than the tang (i hope that's the correct terminology) like my other Marlins. The barrel is stamped JM. Any help is appreciated.

Are you sure that the serial number starts with 98? Marlin moved the serial number to the left side of the receiver in 2008 and that was continued after Remington took over production in 2009.
Yep ... and I put on my reading glasses. Looking at it right now ... and it's listed on the factory box label also.
