Simply because Marlin thought it would look better. These gold trigger Marlins are not different than any other Marlin. They were made for a certain number of years with gold triggers, and all models got them at that time.

What years were Glenfield Model 25 22 rifles made and what model Marlin would be the same?

Glenfield Marlin Model 25 rifles were patterned after the Marlin 80C and Marlin 780 rifles. The Glenfield name was added for sales to coast-to-coast chain-stores versus stores that were specific Marlin dealer stores. The Glenfield 25 was manufactured from 1979 through 1982 according to Brophy. Others would suggest the Marlin Glenfield 25 was produced from 1972-1982. Regardless, the Glenfield name was dropped in 1983. The rifle continued as the Marlin Model 25 until 2003, which then became the Marlin 925. Differences between the Marlin and Glenfied were purely cosmestic i.e. birch stocks instead of walnut stock, different trigger guards, and triggers (black instead of gold colored). It is still being produced in .22LR (Marlin 925) and .22 Magnum (Marlin 925M) versions today. Most parts between the Glenfield 25 and Marlin 780 will interchange with no problem. Some of the Glenfield 20 and 25 will interchange as well. However, not all late model parts between the Marlin 780 and Marlin 80 will interchange with those models made in the pre-70s.

How do you properly clean a Marlin lever action rifle?

Serial numbers were required per a 1968 firearms act. Marlin .22's produced prior to this were not required to have serial numbers stamped on the weapon and marlin decided it was not productive to do so. Although they did stamp some earlier models they discontinued the practice. My Marlin model 56 made in 1960 also has no serial number.

Can you make trigger adjustments on a Marlin 30-30?

No, the triggers on 336 and other Marlin lever actions have no adjustments built in. Some gunsmiths and owners have worked over their triggers to make them better, but most just let them wear in. Aftermarket trigger springs, and mainspring kits are available from places like Wild West Guns, or Dave Clay, to make the trigger feel better. Sometimes this leads to lighter strikes, or misfires, so it's trial and error process. Hope this helps.

What year did Marlin Firearm Corp start to use Model or Serial numbers?

Marlin has used both model, and serial numbers since they made their first handguns in 1870. However, this did not always include .22 rifles, as they were not always required to have a serial number, until 1968. Many Marlin .22 rifles from the post WWII to 1968 time were not serial numbered. Model numbers were always used, but some models were not marked with the model number. The model 1881, 1888, and 1889 Marlins were not marked with the model, but they were cataloged as these models.

Do you have to purchase a trigger kit to improve a 1895c which has a terribly heavy trigger pull?

I've never seen "trigger kits" in a Marlin catalog. If the trigger pull is so bad you need to have it fixed, I suggest sending it back to the factory. Write or call first to find out how to do it legally and safely. All major manufacturers have a repair department, and work at reasonable rates. Many times, they won't charge if it's a problem with the gun and not something you did. Otherwise, you might try finding a good gunsmith locally to take the job for you. But, be careful. Over the years, I've seen half a dozen guns with triggers "souped up" by folks who didn't really know what they were doing. The trigger pulls were so light on them, they weren't really safe to use. I always figure that the people who built it know best how to fix it. Good luck.AnswerIn fact, there's an attached link to info on how to send guns to Marlin for repair. AnswerWild West Guns sells trigger kits for these models, and some others sell spring kits to refit these, so they have a better feel. These parts can be found through Brownells on the web at
