Serial number "U" is 1961 The following table can be used to date the year of manufacture of a Marlin 336.
It is also valid for determining most other Marlin firearm build dates from 1946 to the present.
Since I bought the gun new sometime in the 1980's, it should be on the list. That rifle does not work with the code and does not come up on the site. It is still a 336 with 16" barrel and straight stock. I did some researching, and found that the Camp 9 was manufactured from 1985 to 1999.
All Marlins manufactured from 1969 to 1990: The first two digits of the serial number designate the year of manufacture, either as the last two digits of the year (in 1969-71) or as a number code (1971 and later).. I also have an 1895 from 1972 when they were first re-introduced that does not work with that site.
My general understanding is that it was the predecessor to the various Model 336 weapons. (The previous model was the square bolt Model 36) "If the SN of your rifle has no letter prefix, add the first two digits together and subtract the total from 100 for the year.
( ex: 63xxxxxx : 6 3 = 9 from 100 = 1991)" - [EDIT: NOT ! (correct info below) Marlin year of manufacture maybe determined from the following list of letter/numeral prefixs to the serial number; this coding only applies to serialized rifles: 1946-C 1947-D 1948-E 1949-F 1950-G 1951-H 1952-J 1953-K 1954-L 1955-M 1956-N 1957-58-R 1958-59-S 1960 (August)-1961-U 1961 (August)-1962-V 1963-W 1964-Y,-Z 1965-AA 1966-AB 1967-AC 1968-AD, -68 1969-69 1970-70 1971-71 1972-72 Starting in 1973, the year of manufacture maybe determined by subtracting the first two digits of the serial number from 100: Example: SN 2512345 would have been made in 1975 [100 - 25 = 75]. I never knew about the adding of the first two numbers then subtracting from 100. I thought the "new" serial number year of manf code was to take 100 and subtract the first two numbers.
I just recently did the same thing with the same weapon. The best book Ive found and used on multiple Firearm tear downs and reassemblies is "The Official NRA Guide to Firearms Assembly Two Volume Set".
Comes with a book for Handguns/Revolvers and a book for Shotguns/Rifles.
