Hey all,
I'm having trouble ID'ing this little .410 I picked up the other day.... it has virtually no markings whatsoever. It has what appears to be a serial number (0124) stamped under the receiver, two number 1s inside the forearm steel and a small "JM" in an oval stamped on the left side of the barrel (? trunion). It has the shell extractors as well.
It also has a butt pad marked "Wisler Western Arms San Francisco, CA". Wisler, I'm told, was neither a gun maker or gunsmith, but was actually a distributor...
The overall appearance is similar to the Marlin model 90.... I found this info online: " In 1939, .410 bore was first offered with 26" barrel and 3" chambers. Barrels are 26", 28" or 30", with various chokes. Action is boxlock with extractors. Guns made prior to 1950 were solid between the barrels; after that date there was a space between barrels. Can be found with double-/single triggers and checkered walnut stock. Ventilated rib offered as an option beginning in 1949".
What do you all think?....

Can't help specifically on this but I think you on the right course of direction going with likely distributor and likely of Marlin manufacture. If it looks like a Marlin double barrel .410 then it likely made by Marlin for outsource distribution under another name, but unusual this one has no markings to indicate model or manufacturer other than what may be distributor on butt recoil pad. But looks like a fairly nice .410 over under!
