Why would a Marlin 22 pump 47 have the serial 5015 if the reference books say the serial numbers went only up to 1501?

Best Answer

The Marlin Model 47 was not listed in the Marlin catalog, but was an incentive gift to anyone who purchased four shares of Marlin stock for $100. Very rarely seen on the market. One thing you can count on with Marlin is that there are no hard-and-fast rules for serial numbering on these guns. Many of the similar models were serialized together, and parts replacement further complicates things.

If it has a serial number, you may find it in The Standard Catalog of Firearms or many other reference books have serial number lists.

If you cannot locate your firearm in these books and the manufacturer is still in business, you may be able to find information on the company's website.

How do you tell how old the gun is?

The old joke- you have to cut it in half, and count the rings. :) However, the real answer- there is no one way. Some guns can be dated from a serial number (Winchester rifles- Polishing Room records), but many guns never HAD serial numbers. Some can be dated by a production code (Remington rifles and shotguns) some guns by a serial number prefix (Marlin lever actions) Some can only be dated to a span of years the gun was made (Mossberg 152 rifles). I use about a dozen reference books, and another dozen public information lists- and can still only date a percentage of firearms.
