The model 1893, and 1894 both had the barrel markings you described, so it's hard to say what your gun is, let alone what it's worth, until we know for sure.
A bore of about 7/16" could be a .38-55, or a .38-40.
Microgroove rifling is described in the patent as having 5 grooves for every 1/10 of an inch bore diameter, and that the driving side of each land would be "tangentially disposed" to prevent accumulating fouling in use.
A brother of a friend of mine has the Marlin 6899 chambered for Mag. I have not had a chance to shoot a deer with mine since rifle season was over when i got it, but i have seen my dad kill 7 deer with his and the hornady has done the job.
The first letter of the date code represented the month of manufacture while the second letter indicated the year. The workings are exactly the same as any other Marlin.
This date code was usually stamped on the left side of the barrel just in front of the receiver. Frankm there is a two letter code for month and year on 22's from 60-68 I do not know if it was on any other years, scroll down at the link below and you will find the list.For Marlin Rimfire Rifles [non-serialized]: From 1962 thru 1968 Marlins rimfire rifles (other than the 39 series lever actions) used a two letter date code that was stamped on the barrel. It was fairly accurate, a great mechanism, and still a beautiful gun. Thank you, Frank I have a rifle like dds that does not have the markings that it should have, it's a marlin glenfield mod. that along with the are marked on the left side of the barrel. My serial number is behind the hammer right where the stock joins the gun.This date code is different than the one already listed, as Marlin rimfire rifles (other than the model 39 series) did not have a serial numbers until required to by Law after 1968. serial # 191797** there are no other markings on the rifle Also reading these posts, there are no markings on, near, around, or underneath the lever I would assume the date code would be the but it doesn't fit with what others have posted.subtract 19 from 100 = 81 so 1981. The Glenfield model is the same as any regular Marlin 336 but was made for a chain store, used hard wood instead of Walnut and may have had different sights.MR, production started in Remington plant with proof mark REP However, Marlin like Winchester in the early years may have done a few special orders that do not fit.OR the gun was returned to the factory for repairs & ???He swears it 8767 s the best pig gun out there and keeps it holstered in the cab of his pickup while he works his central Texas farm. I have found that the hornady lever Revolution is the best ammo for the 85-85 and remington. I did however shoot a bowling pin at 655 yards standing off hand and it damn near exploaded.
