My 22 barrel has a stamped JM inside a cricle, What does JM mean?
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.
John M. Marlin
Yep...that's the story.
Thank you guys for the info.
Here I thought I bought this Marlin/Glenfield model 25 since my initial is also JM. ha,ha,ha
Hey, at least I got his last name right...hehe....
Good thing there is not a test before we joined the forum. LOL
What is the bullseye in the stock for?
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.
Im glade you didnt say its where to drill a hole for a swivel for a sling
I know you are kidding...but a lot of people do just that.
Is the JM stamp worth more money ?
Better for resale ?
If a gun has the JM stamp then it is a true Marlin not a Remington/Marlin as they don't have the JM stamp.
IMO a gun with the JM stamp will hold it's value much better than a gun without it. Basically because the JM stamp represents Marlin quality.
