I know this is probably here somewhere, but I can't find it. Does anyone know what year Marlin started using the Marshield finish? And not as important to me, but does anyone know when they stopped?
Thanks for the information, and take care,
Rick, it's just my guess, but the finish they used in the early 70's might have been the "prototype" as we have come to find over the years the Mar-shield finish is tough. Seems the finish back then did a lot of flaking off for some reason, this was not a bad thing for the person who was going to refinish a stock as the finish could be scraped off. Mr fixit
