The 99M1 and 989M2 were put into production in the 50's to capture the heart and sole of the WWII vet. They were a way for those that served to get a similar rifle to the one they carried and be affordable. They made the 989m2 (Box mag instead of tube) as well. I think the production ran approx 5 years. If you have one, keep it.
This link has some history info on the Marlin rifles, hope it helps.

the sights are extremely hard to find and if you do they will run you about $100. Alot of the original sights were taken off so a scope could be put on the gun and then got lost.... I believe Tech sights can be put on the rifle and give it a more authentic look but they are a little pricey too....
