Hi everyone, just joined maybe someone can help me out. i also hope this doesn't post twice not good at this. I have a 1894 44mag has North haven Ct. on barrel serial# 92,04X,XXX no MR pre # and no REP on other side rec. according to chart it's a 2008 probably late in yr. I do know that 12-26-2007 marlin was in contract to sell. Now i can't find JM on barrel up by rec but there are some wierd punch marks. The wood is nice and the fit is very good. Blueing is perfect. I guess what i'm asking was Marlin still making these in 2008 and was QG still good. I am not going to be able to physically shoot gun for a long time. I had some older ones and the wood was darker i really liked the look thats another subject. Action feels pretty good fairly hard to open and close not bad after that. i haven't tried cycle i have to get blanks.Ok does anyone know if this is a real marlin or a Remlin and were they still producing good guns through 2008. Appreciate any info. Thanks much. OMT"
