JM is the trade mark of the Marlin company, I believe it is the initials of the founder Jame Marlin. I am sure Shrek or the other Marlinites will jump in and correct me if I am wrong.

That's so when you are looking at a bunch of lever guns in a rifle rack you don't accidentally grab a Winchester.

It was just a decorative trademark logo added to the rifles in the early 1920's.
