Marlin Factory Records
Marlin factory records cover manufacture from 1881 to about 1906. Most records are for Marlin’s lever action rifles and carbines, but some records do survive for the Model 1898 shotgun. Records typically include confirmation of model, caliber, barrel length, barrel type along with date of manufacture. Other configuration data may also be on the record and will be included on the letter if present. Customer data is not available for these Marlins.
Find the full list of available Marlin models and serial number ranges here. But please note: Many blank records exist within the Marlin records. We suggest you contact the Records Office at 307-578-4031 or [email protected] to make sure a record is available for your Marlin before sending in an order.
Marlin 39A and 39M Presentation records are available for this special 90th Anniversary (1960) production run. Customer data may be available for these firearms.
Marlin factory letters are $75 for individuals who are not Firearms Members of the Center. Learn more about firearms membership here.
