AGI video from Midway. Covers 1894&336. Dosnt get any better. J BOBWAY!!!!
Here you go: DISASSEMBLY & ASSEMBLY OF 1895 WITH PICS
Step by step with pictures and instructions. Your 336 will be the same except you do not have the bluge in the mag tube so no twisiting required and you likely have barrel bands but that's pretty straight forward.
If you don't already have them, do yourself and your gun a favor and invest in gunsmithing screwdrivers. I like Grace Gun Tools and if you contact them they will sell you a 5pc Marlin set for $38. But there's lots of options.
Also, click the links in my signature to discover a wealth of outstanding information on all things Marlin.
what about the older "pre-safety" models? What differences are there in the take down procedures?
There's just some things that don't need saying on the internet superhighway!

Thanks for all the input! I managed to watch the recommended video, and after blasting it with WD-40, letting it sit overnight and gently (?) tapping the bottom trigger assembly this morning, it finally broke free. Inside looks pretty bad, rust (and mud!) just about everywhere. Confirms my thoughts about it living in a lake for a time! But I've already started wire-brushing everything and it's actually starting to clean up better than I expected. Here is what I found inside:MVC-006F.JPGMVC-001F.JPGMVC-002F.JPGMVC-003F.JPGMVC-004F.JPG
Will keep you posted as work progresses. Gotta bring this 'ole girl back to life!
