Little more to it than that......

He is essentially correct, however depending on the age of rifle the serial number may be on the lower tang/ trigger plate rather than on the top tang, as are later Marlins.

To me that isn't much of an issue, but depending on your donor and recipient, you could end up with one of three combinations.

A rifle with a serial number on the bottom tang, in which case who is to say if it is on the correct rifle.

Or more interestingly, a rifle with TWO serial numbers, which would undoubtedly interest the Powers That Be.

Or even more daring, a rifle with no serial numbers whatsoever, a Straight To Jail roll if ever there was one.
