I've seen bad roll stamps. I had an early Model 1894 that was missing the last patent date. It happens.

Without seeing it I can't comment on the forearm. It may be period correct.

It sounds like the rifle is functioning fine now.. That's good and the more you cycle it the smoother it should get.

Screw in ejectors were not used on the 1897.

If the base is flush to the receiver that's good. When you press the ejector down all the way does it sit flush?

ALL Model 1897's were takedowns. It was an L.L.Hepburn patent. It's stamped on the inside of the receiver. The same takedown receiver design was in use all the way through the Model 39a.

If it has a takedown frame, with a LARGE takedown screw, it's an 1897. The receiver, lever, and hammer will be case colored. The bolt will be blued.

If it has a small THUMB screw it's either an...

Marlin didn't introduce the spur until 1957. Yes, the hammer is slightly different. IIRC There is a slight "divot" for the set screw.

Questions on this 617

I like long barreled handguns, for range use. Sight picture is easier on the aging eyes too.

LGS had a 617-4 8-3/8" 10-shot, with box, for $600. I didn't know they made a 10-shot in that barrel...

Marlin "burned" the stocks for the final fit. They heated the tangs and pressed in the stock, burning it, to a perfect fit.

No matter how hard you try you will not match the wood grain or even get close. Each piece of wood is unique.

Marlin's finish was proprietary. Again, it will not match.
