Thanks. I was familiar with the normal serial number calculation and thought this was the logical answer. Of course, logic sometimes goes out the window when companies assign serial numbers. Fun little rifle no matter when it was made.

Thanks again,

JOHNC

here's a list of what I have so far in Alphabetical order...


Brand Name - Store Name


Big 5 - United Merchant Big 5 stores

Coast to Coast - Coast to Coast hardware stores

Cotter & Co. / Westpoint - True Value hardware stores

Firestone - Firestone Tire & Rubber stores (they Actually sold RIFLES!! WOW!!)

Foremost - J.C. Penny stores

Huntsman - (Marlin 25C Goose Gun) Unknown store so far???

Katz - Drug store chain (thanks BlackOak!)

Mages & Co - (Marlin 55 Goose Gun) Unknown Store???

Markey Brothers - (Marlin 101) Unknown Store???

Otasco - Otasco retail stores, after 1960, known as McCrory stores

Revelation - Western Auto stores

Sears, Ranger, J.C. Higgins - made for Sears, Roebuck & Co.

Speigel - Spiegel Catalog Stores

Western Field or Hawthorne - Montgomery Ward stores


If anyone knows what the stores in RED are, post away
I can't believe they made a Firestone Brand! Does anyone have one of these specialty made Marlins? Or has anyone come up some pics of these? Would they look any different?

Model 60 W

Just picked up a Marlin model 60W, Ser 073***** at Pawn shop, can any one lead to where I could find the age. It is very clean and in very good shape, it has a medallion in the stock about the size of a quarter and says "Shoot Safely".

s/n 07xxxxxx = 1993

Other than that I don't know about the medallion

So, 06203xxx

would indicate a 1996 year of manufacture on a Model 60 - right?

Bought mine in a pawn shop about 6 - 8 years ago, still had the inspected by sticker on it - I took it off, go figure. Since then I have acquired a few Glennys and had the inside wear parts replaced before the parts are no longer available, one of these is my dad's, he loves to plink also. The Glennys all are in nice-ish physical shape, and great shooters - of course.

Really like shooting the model 60 most of all if for no other reason than it's it's the "least old" of them all, but I do show love to the others!

Now I am on the hunt for a scope for the 60 - don't need a 3x9, just something to bring 50 yds or so up close.

Been lurking here forever on an irregular basis. Great stuff!

Just bought yesterday..Glenfield Model 75 carbine...

Had been looking t it for several months...finally bought it yesterday...
Priced at $125, got it for $100 even.
No serial Number, so it's a 1967, first year of manufacture...

A great design, IMO, handy as you could want, light, and.a good trigger.
Put some cold blue in some spots of bare steel, and took off some dirt from the wood, plain birch, no checkering, bot nice grain..
will take it down and clean the action on Sunday.

Keeping this one till I'm dead.

Always loved the Marlin M 60 .22 autos, and all I need to do now is go shoot it...
