Model 8 build date

Post by Rich » Mon Jun 22, 2009 5:36 pm

I bought a nice old Model 8 at a gunshow this last weekend and was wondering if someone
could tell me the date it was built? The serial # 114xx. It is in 35 caliber and I was surprised at how well it shot. Took it to the range and shot a 1" 4 shot group at 50yds with some lead bullet loads I had made up for a Marlin 336.
Thanks

Rich,

Your rifle was shipped in 1908.

Post some pictures for those of use that like to see these old relics.

John,
Thanks for the information. I will try to get a couple of pictures to post.
She shows her age and a lot of character but still but still is holding her own.
