Congrats, you have a bit of a rarity. Try the Old Western Scrounger -

A web search turned up other hits. Reloading may be your best bet, unless you just want to pop off a couple of rounds to say you did.

Good luck and welcome to the forum. It's probably a model 336, by the way.

Yes, a picture of the barrel roll form would be helpful. The Marlin 219 Zipper was manufactured during 1955-1959, which had serial numbers starting with M,N,P,R and S. Does your serial number start with any of these letters?

Sounds like someone must have turned over the 6 when the barrel was stamped, but that doesn't make sense either, as I beleive that those are supposed to be roll stampings. I've seen three .219's, and they were all marked 336.

As info, the serial number starting with "M" would designate manufactured in 1955.

Best,
