Re: 39D

Olde Texas;

In 1971, the Model 39D was introduced with a white line grip cap. The 39D was not listed in the 1972 Marlin catalog, but came back in 1973 without the white line grip cap. There were 15,657 Model 39D's made in 1971 and 1972. There were 7,891 made after that up to 1974.

Re: Stocks on the Marlin 16 gauge pump shotguns.

BUSSMAN69; The 16 gauge receiver is not the same as the 12 gauge receiver. On page 378 of the Brophy book, under the Field Gun description, you will see that Brophy mentions that the weight of the 16 gauge gun is less than the 12 gauge gun because of the dimensions of the 16 gauge gun is smaller tha...

Re: 1893 what caliber

Mratop; The only caliber larger than the .32 Special in the Model 1893 would be the .38-55 Ballard cartridge. Since you state your gun was made in 1903, you could post the serial number and the old factory records could be checked for your gun. It would be unusual that the caliber is not stamped on ...

Re: Serial Numbers for 39A

That would be 1974. 100 - 26 = 74 or 1974.

Re: Antique Marlin 1894 38 40 stock question

Henry4570; The frame sizes for all four calibers of the Model 1894 are the same. There may be a slight difference where the metal meets the wood as these were hand fitted at the time of assembly. That is why the wood was serialized to the frame so as to bring the parts back together after the finish...

Re: Authentic rifle sights for a Model 1889 rifle

BUSSMAN69; Refer to page 636 of the Brophy book. At the top, left of the page is a catalog illustration showing the proper rear sight for a Model 1889. The Rocky Mountain Buckhorn is what came on the standard Model 1881, 1889 and many Ballard rifles. Note the base of the sight that has extensions ( ...

The "Y" serial number prefix indicates manufacture date of 1964. Unfortunately, the .219 Zipper cartridge guns were discontinued in 1959.

Your Marlin Model '92 is a black powder gun, so you can shoot it, just be sure to use standard velocity or target ammunition in it. Modern high speed ammunition can crack the breech bolt.
