The JM stamp meant the rifle was made at the Marlin factory by experienced armsmakers with lever action specific tooling. Marlin was sold to Remington who laid off the Marlin employees and transferred production of the Marlin levers rifles to a Remington plant, which had non lever specific tooling and armsmakers inexperienced in lever actions.
For the first decade after production transfer the lever actions coming out of the Remington plant were poorly tooled and problematic, and just as the quality was beginning to improve Remington declared bankruptcy and closed production. Ruger recently bought the Marlin name from the bankruptcy court, and announced they will begin making lever action rifles soon.
