    I am trying to research a Ranger shotgun/ 16 gage for my mom. She has the serial # but no model #. Does anyone know of a way to look up information on this gun ie. manufacture date and common uses? Thanks for the help.

    If memory serves me correctly call Marlin Firearms and ask them. If my memory is acting right at all I think Ranger used to be sold by Sears many many many moons ago and made by Marlin ... but I might be wrong.

    There has to be more markings on the gun other than Ranger and just a serial # ... aint there?

    Hard to tell without the model number. Rangers were made by Savage, Stevens, Winchester, H&R, And Marlin.

    Lumper, you're good! According to Blue Book's cross-over list Ranger guns were made by Savage, Stevens, H & R, Winchester and Marlin for Sears. If you can provide a model # I can tell you who made it.

    I aint that good ... I didn't remember a dang thing about Savage, Stevens, H&R or Winchester.

    jellis0582 ... give at least a little more info on the guns. Are they pump action? Are they over/unders? Are the side by sides? Are they single shot? Any information at all might help somebody in helping you in your journey and quest for information.
