    336C vs. 336W?

    What's the real difference between the 336C and the 336W? Is the "C" more accurate?

    Re: 336C vs. 336W?

    The major difference between the two is the fact that the C has a walnut stock and forearm and the W's are birch. Accuracy differences depend on the individual rifles and loads.

    Same accuracy, different furniture.

    The "W" indicates it was an economy gun made to be sold at Walmart. They shoot fine...just not as "purdy".

    As said, aside from the furniture, the W is every bit the rifle of any other Marlin and is an excellent value.

    My wife, Marla, kind of fell in love with a W at Academy, so we bought it for her along with a Bushnell Elite 3200 3 - 9 X 40 scope that she liked. It's her 4th Marlin; I think she's caught the Marlinitis disease.

    The front and rear sites are different on the W than the C. With a little better sites on the C.

    The W doesn't have a fold down rear site and the C does. This is nice if you use a scope as you can mount it low and flip it down to get clearance. The W I had to remove the rear site to get clearance with the bell of the scope.

    The C also has a rubber butt pad. The W just has the hard plastic butt plate.
    You must see what you shoot...or you might shoot what you don't see!

    How lucky can A man get? A wife with Marlinitis.

    I reckon so. In any event, I sure married right. And, that's the livin' truth.
