    "This is my older 336-A in 35 Remington. Note absence of white line spacers. Raised comb for scope use."

    Yours is one of the 336's made between 1957 and 1962 which were fitted with the raised Monte Carlo comb butt stock designed by Bishop Gunstocks; and yes, that gun was originally shipped with a white-line butt plate and pistol grip cap plastic spacer (see Julia photo below of an experimental 336-A chambered in 250 Savage; actually named the Model 3000 after its 3000ft/sec 250 Sav chambering). The ADL version of the 336A from the 1957-1962 period came with fancy grained Monte Carlo combed stocks with a raised check piece; and looked something like this:Marlin 336A.jpgleft side full view.jpg
    I too have a '73 vintage 336-A/35 Rem; and although it's an OK gun and will fill a niche in my collection until I can do better; this model isn't the same quality of the early vintage A/ADL models, and will have a new home as soon as I have the opportunity to replace that gun with a 1957-1962 vintage ADL in 35 Rem.

    GR, I believe you're just trying to pull our respective chains here, as surely you DON"T want us to believe that you actually paid $100 for that "thing" thirty years ago when $100 was like $300 nowadays? Heck, I was buying brand new Marlin levers 30 years ago for a $100; what were you smoking? Surely the real truth is that this "custom stock job" was done while the previous owner was high on something; and when he sobered up, PAID YOU to take that piece off his hands so he wouldn't be forced to look at the piece and be reminded of his folly! Over my many years now I've had the misfortune to see a lot of ugly guns; but yours may be the ugliest of the lot. One would tend to believe that you, as an admirer of the fine Marlin lever rifle, would take pity on the old gal; and simply out of respect, replace those crapped out stocks with a set a bit more befitting her appearance? And although a dead deer is a dead deer, I'm sure if these four-legged creatures could speak; they tell you to a deer that, since you just had to shoot them, the very least you could do was to be respectful enough of their personal sacrifices that you could shoot them with something other than this butt-ugly gun. Therefore I encourage you exercise greater respect for our esteemed quarry, the whitetail deer; and to also be a bit more mindful of the negative impact inflicted upon the eyes of our esteemed membership when they accidentally click on a thread showing that butt-ugly aberation.

    Yep" paid a hundred dollars for it and 85 rounds of ammo with a hunting knife and hunting stool throwed in for boot.
    Sure did,,Close to 30 years anyway.Bought a fox b model dbl shotgun from the same guy a year later,with all his shells for another hundred.

    102_04822.jpgI dearly love a fine piece of walnut,(Check out that stock on my 99 stickin out of that rifle boot in the pic with the A model)But aint a messin with my "MoJo" Rachethead
    Im willing to bet there aint many thats killed more deer.
    Might just be from its blame looks
    But Ill take em
    Its kinda like me,ugly as all get out,But well known in these parts as being fairly dangerous
    Back when I used to race cars,we had a sayin,,If it want run "Crome it"!
    But thats truely a pretty rifle you have.And no doubt worth alot of money..
    But dont even ask,Cause I aint a tradin

    I've killed a lot of dear in my years of hunting, but I've never killed one with a 35 Marlin; might happen this year, who knows?. Not that I haven't hunted with one of the 6 or 8 35's I've owned over the years; it's just that one never "stepped out" when I had a 35 in my hands. On the other hand, my BIL has killed truck loads of deer with his old 35 Marlin; and if he'd ever carved on its stocks back in those days when he was drinking a lot, it'd probably look just like yours. I will confess however, that I do like my guns to look pretty good because I figured out long ago that I actually spend more time looking at my guns than I do shooting them; but don't think for a minute that I'd be afraid to take a nice gun hunting for fear of scratching up a nice stock!Marlin.32 Special.Doe.10.22.11..jpgGobler & Smith.04.2010.jpg

    Never thought for a minute.Im just a poor ol Country boy.
    Cant afford alot.
    Mine want never win a contest for looks.You pointed that out very well.
    But they dont take a backseat when it comes to feeding the family.(Takes alot of meat to keep this train a running
    )Sure hope one gives ya a chance to see a 35 perform oneday.
    There aint nothing like it.Ive hammered em with 45/70s and 444s.But a 35 will flat out put a hurtin on em.
    But to be honest,, my 7mags with scopes are being took more and more.(there ugly too,even the weatherby) And ladderstands,tripods,pipelines and powerlines are starting to replace tree stumps,still hunting and levers with peeps as I grow older.But at 50 Im still willing,and able.
    Take care of them great rifles of yours buddy.There something to be proud of for sure.
    You sure you wouldnt want atleast one ugly duckling rifle?you might be surpised.might end up bein the best shooter you have!
    I mean after all Mama kept me
    Even when the circus was offerin her all that cash for me when I was a baby
    Take care,
    Randy,,

    "sure hope one gives ya a chance to see a 35 perform oneday. There aint nothing like it.Ive hammered em with 45/70s and 444s.But a 35 will flat out put a hurtin one".

    Friend, You ain't hammered a deer with a traditional lever rifle until you hammer one with a 338MX!

    "And ladderstands,tripods,pipelines and powerlines are starting to replace tree stumps,still hunting and levers with peeps as I grow older.But at 50 Im still willing,and able"

    Be sure to enjoy being 50; being 60 ain't near as much fun!
