Serial Number/Rifling for an 1895CB

Post by VAUGHN P. JONES » Sat Jan 10, 2015 7:43 am

I am considering an 1895 CB serial number 91060xxx in .45-70 and have two questions:

1 Was it made prior to the takeover by Remington
2 Is the rifling Ballard or Microgroove

The seller states it has a JM number, whatever that is.

I want to bid today, January 10, 2015, if possible.

Vaughn P. Jones;

The 91 in the serial number indicates this Model 1895 CB was made in 2009, and by Marlin. It will have the Ballard, cut style rifling.
Good luck bidding.....

Bob;

No. Your Model 1895 CB with a serial number beginning with 95 means it was manufactured in 2005. Subtract the first two digits from 100, i.e. 100 - 95 = 5 or 2005.

Howdy all,

Just purchased a 1895 CB with a serial # 991260XXB
Does this mean that it was made in 2011? or 2001?

Thanks very much in advance.
