Default 1895 45/70

I was curious if someone could help answer a couple question about my 45/70 I picked up last year. Do all of the 1895 have Jm stamped on the barrel and trying to get the age of the rifle. Also does having the barrel ported affect the value negative or positively

Welcome to the forum.

You can try this link here.For dates of manufacture http://oldguns.net/sn_php/marlinlookup.php
Or a call to Marlin with your serial number handy when you call

I think a ported JM model would hold a higher status

A Marlin .444rem holds a even higher status

Subtract the first 2 digits of the serial number from 100 to get date of manufacture with 00 being 2000. If it had MR then it was a Remington manufacture gun. I believe 2009 was the last year they used this and the digits would have been 91.

The answer to the JM stamp is no, they don't all have it. Those made after Remington purchased Marlin wont have the JM stamp. SO if yours is new enough, it wouldn't have it. Values are also lower for guns built by Rem. vs. those earlier built in Conn. by Marlin.

If you have a JM stamped Marlin, don't let anyone talk you out of it.
That gun is a true Marlin, not a "Remlin" and the quality far surpasses the guns manufactured after the turnover to Remington.
Another defining feature that tells you it's a real Marlin is the ported barrel.
