This site was out of commission for awhile. Glad to see it back up and thanks for posting.

Default Marlin Glenfield Model 60 question

okay i tried to use the site to date my M60, but it just didn't work. it puts it at about 1958, and i know that's not correct. what i can gather by features is this, 21" barrel, holds 18 rounds in the tube, has no LSHO feature, and is rollmarked GLENFIELD MOD. 60 The Marlin Firearms Co. i had it narrowed down to made before 1984, as in about 1985 they started adding the LSHO feature. found out that about 1981 or 82, they stopped using the Glenfield in the name. it has an eight digit SN, and is 2R0033XX. any help determining it's age or year of manufacture would be appreciated. thanks.

Hi,

I bought an old but very reliable and accurate Mossberg 308 with serial number 26931, can you tell me when it was manufactured.

Many Thanks

only suggestion i can make is to try and Google Mossberg and see if there are any forums or you might try Mossberg customer service and see if they might be able to either tell you when it was made or some source in locating the information. good luck, i hope this helps.

Talking Strange serial number (Maybe)

I recently acquired a Mdl 1894 S .44 Mag, 20" BBL in pristine condition. It has fine checkering on the stock as well as the forearm.

The serial number is the strange part of this rifle it is 000272XX. When I tried to use the date of manufacture site I first tried "00" as the first two numbers. It didn't like that so I skipped all of the zero's and tried "27" that came back as 1973. Not sure if that is correct. I then went up to the other site and entered the entire serial number and that came back as being manufactured in 1889, this too is doubtful as it has a cross bolt safety.

I have looked at other Marlin lever actions and most have letters preceding the numbers of the serial number.

Any input will be appreciated.
Thanks,
Rog

OK...did you plug in the letter O instead of zeros in the first two spaces...?!

Thanks for the response Shooter 13, the digits are not O's they are defiantly zero's but just for grins and giggles I did as you suggested and got negative results.

This is indeed a mystery. I'm very happy with the weapon but would like to know a little about it's origin.

Kawa.....
On the newer rifles you subtract the first two digits from 100. It requires a little more thought after the year 2000, but here's how it works.
100 - 23XXXX = 1977
100 - 20XXXX = 1980
100 - 00XXXX = 2000
100 - 93XXXX = 2007
This system applies to rifles built from 1969 to at least 2009 when they were bought out by Remington. Marlin started with a numbering system in the 1800's then they went to a letter prefix for a few years. I am not 100% sure what Remington is doing now, but I know the letters MR are in the serial number. I hope this helps.

Mystery solved (Kinda) I contacted Marlin Firearms Co. and was told by "Patty" based on the entire serial number my weapon is a "1894 44 Mag lever action mfg. in the year 2000". She had no further explanation as to the oddity of the number or when this sequence was started.

Thank you all for all of your input. now I guess I'll just go out and see if I can burn the barrel out of it.
