TRW;

The Marlin Association does not have any of the H&R records. The Model 949 was made from 1960 to 1985. With a low serial number like the one you have should be one of the early one.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.

If the world was perfect.......it wouldn't be.
