    336 1870-1970 model

    I picked up a 336, nothing else marked. It has a small medalian in the butt stock "Marlin 1870 - 1970".

    Rifle is 99% and has the best finish I have seen on a Marlin. Any Idea what I got and what it may be worth?

    Marlin put out a Centennial version in 1970. I'm not up on the prices, but I'd imagine it would bring a small premium over a plain 336 in similar condition -- IF it's the genuine article. Problem is, Marlin also sold a "kit" including the medallion and instructions on how to install it, so there's no telling how many examples are real and how many are doctored.

    Thank you for the info.

    Not sure if it is the real McCoy or not, but like I said, this one has the best metal work I have seen. I own three other Marlins and this one is by far the best looking one I have.

    Could be the real deal. But, then again, I have a 1967 vintage plain-Jane 336 that's far, far nicer than any current production gun finish-wise. maybe they had a special serial number range? Might be worth a bit of research.

    This is the first I heard of this. I have a 1970 336 with no medalian. I never seen one. You're never to old for new information.
    Have you shouldered your Marlin today?

    It sounds like the stock may have been traded out between 1970 and now. I have one and find the medallion to be offensive and tacky. I bought it over the internet and the posted pictures were not indicative of the medallion. As for me, the value falls a bit because of the medallion though they are the same quality as non-70 production. Unlike the Liberty model Rugers, I have never seen a premium added to standard production centennial model Marlins. To some it may enhance the value.

    Funny this thread came up. I stopped at a shop about 1 hour from here today and saw one of the centenial medallion 336's in the gun rack. Average shape. Asking price was $229. It was made on a '69 action. Personally I dislike the little medallions and find I give them less value. Rick

    I checked the serial numbers, 69 124XXX. If I read the info right, this is a 1969 frame.

    I finaly called Marlin and they tell me that all '70 models had this and that it nothing special.

    So I guess I got a new shooter. You should have seen my grandson's eyes when he saw it. He loves shooting my 39A.

    That alone makes it worth buying.

    Another Marlin addict in the making.
    My son had a similar reaction.
