Free chat sites with no sighn up in rgv - Dating a firearm by serial number

Marlin made various Limited Edition / House Brand guns.

Can anyone give me information on H/R 22 lr revolver. It should be safe to shoot assuming it is in functional condition and I hope you will enjoy it.

That all said, you might want to ask about your H&R .22 revolver in the modern handguns forum, or the commercial and sporting firearms forum, or the .22 shooters and collectors forum, as you may find more members who know more about it than you will here where the focus is on shotguns. My 1980 vintage Sportsman 999 revolver bearing "AU" code, spot on with above listing for that date.

Their serial numbering convention was different from what is shown above.

Not all Marlin House Brand rifles will vary from the above chart, but some will.

If you call Ruger customer service they'll give you month of manufacture.

Curiously enough, after dating all of my Rugers with Ruger customer service directly, I found that the Ruger serial number chart on their website is not always accurate.

As of late 2013, a Marlin .22 RF rifle (XT-22 Mag) had a serial number prefix of MM reported and verified.

It is unknown as of December 2013 how Marlin (”Remlin”) will continue with their serial numbering convention.

Some guns that clearly looked to be in one year were actually in a different year according to customer service.
