    Marlin 30AW

    Hi Guys,
    Have not been around in a while. Thought that I would stop in and say hi.
    Also, I picked up a 30AW today and I am having trouble finding info.
    I am assuming that it is a Glenfield Marlin and probably made for Walmart by the looks of the lumber.
    Could anybody help me date this gun?
    I think that I got a good buy on it. Steel is in almost factory condition, wood finish needs some minor work and it came with a 3-9 Tasco scope. Picked it up for $200.00

    Sounds like a terrific deal. Wood is easy to refinish. I'm sure someone on this site can tell you the age of the gun from its seriel #. Be sure and post pictures!

    Re: Marlin 30AW

    The one I bought used earlier this year is a 30AW.

    I believe the 30AW is the Wally world equivalent to the 336W with a Birch stock, no pistol grip cap, and no white spacer in the butt plate. If it has checkering, it's the pressed checkering, not carved checkering.

    Serial number dating works the same as the 336.

    Re: Marlin 30AW

    i just bought a 30AW last week for 150 bucks. The guy had sanded the stock down with looks like 50 grit and was scratched to pieces. I have worn my arm out with 400 grit get it out without losing too much wood. Just finished putting some minwax red mohagony on it and it looks pretty good. Trying to locate some tru oil around town to finish it off with. The wood is very hard, but i'm pretty happy with the results so far as i've never attempted a refinish and reblue before. I'll post some pics when i get it done. Hopefully, my new XS ghostrings will be here in a day or two.

    Re: Marlin 30AW

    Subtract the first 2 digits of your serial number from 2000. For example a gun with 24 as the first two will be a 1976 model gun.

    2000
    -24

    1976

    The date codes and other info is in the Reference library here at MO's.
