    Gold Trigger 1973 M-336

    My dad just bought a nice 336 from the original owner. He claimed he bought it new in 1973, and that it was a 'first edition' due to the gold trigger. Is there any extra value to a 336 due to the gold trigger? The serial number range is 27033XXX. Thanks for any advice!

    Re: Gold Trigger 1973 M-336

    Unfortunately that assertion is just BS, the flashy gold-plated Marlin 336 trigger actually dates back to the late 1950's; that feature was dropped in the early 1980's, as I recall, and blued triggers have been the standard fare since. Collectors and shooters looking for 336's from this era are usually interested because these Marlin's are "pre-safety" models; and many guys who despise that CBS safety feature will pay a slight premiums for such a gun. Others will pay a slight premium for a gun from this era based on condition (near new), specific caliber, and model (straight gripped guns are not as common and are always in demand).

    Re: Gold Trigger 1973 M-336

    I can tell from the serial # that it's not a 336A in 35 Remington, but that's OK. And as RH said, it goes way back before 1973. I have a 1966 with the gold trigger.

    Now the next question, is it a 336A in 30-30? Marlin reintroduced the 336A (24" barrel) in 1973 and that could be what he was referring to.

    Yes, it is a 336A in .30-30. It has smooth wood (no checkering) and standard sights. I told my dad he could fire it without risk of losing value even if it was rare as long as he didn't ding it up. We'll take it to the range soon to find out what kind of a shooter it is. Thanks for the replies!

    That was the first year of the 2nd coming of the 336A. So it is kind of a first. They are fairly common as they were made until 1980 unlike the 336A in 35 Remington which was made ONLY in 1973. I bet it looks a lot like this:
