That serial number is too high for the existing original Marlin factory records that end in 1906. The records end at about 355,500, so your serial number, about 36,000 numbers higher would place an estimate of the date of your gun approximately 1908/1909. That will be about as close as we can get.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there will be no warning shot!
