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. :eek:

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

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.
