    Marlin 36 RC 30-30 1950

    New to the forum. I am interested in finding out the worth of this gun. The serial # G6772. Marlin tells me it was made 1950. I may want to sell. Can someone point me in the direction.

    That's a 336, introduced in 1948 with serial prefix E, so yours is of 1950 mfg. The carbines in 30-30 are the most common variation. Is the top of the receiver still untouched (i.e. not drilled for a scope mount)? Finish seems to be showing wear and going plum. The sling swivels were added to the gun. Condition of the barrel is important too. (Pix shown don't tell us much...) At the outside, I'd say $300 - maybe.

    You are correct that is a Model 36 not a 336 (square bolt vs. round bolt). Your "G" prefix is most likely actually a "c" (1946), model 36's are notorious for difficult to decipher markings. As to a value check the Model 36 auctions on sites like gunbroker and see prices. Its easiest to check the completed auctions so you can see a selling price.

    I am SO embarassed! The first picture would not come up for me, and I jumped to conclusions... I'll bow out of this and spare myself further discomfort. Oh, my!

    If it's an upper case C, then it would be 1945. A lower case c is 1946. It should be stamped Model 36 on the barrel. Hope this helps.

    My model 36 is not marked with a model designation, its even hard to find the caliber markings. The roll stamps are pre WWII, and more typical for an A1, on one of mine as well. The transition guns are fun because it was willy nilly at Marlin at that time. They were using any and all old stock/parts to fill orders as they began to ramp up production after the war. I feel it makes them extra special, but there are multiple conotations for special.

    Thanks for your input. To answer your question. The top is untouched, no holes for scope. The lettering I interpret as being a upper case G but it could be a C. I called Marlin with this upper case G 6772 serial number and they said it was made in 1950. I will check more sites.

    Again thanks for all the input.

    I took my 1954 RC texan in yesterday to the smith.
    Just for xxxxxxxxxxxx I asked him to look up the value.
    He advised the older marlins were going higher is price regardless of condition.
    at 95% he valued it at $395.00. I was ecstatic because I had only paid $275 For itt just two months ago when I bought it from a pawn shop.
    Best of luck with yours!!!

    Past down to me

    I have a Marlin Model 36 30-30 and it has the serial number of G 22931. I am asuming that the G is part of it, but now near the serial number, it is actually on the other side of the gun. How were you able to find out about the year of your gun. Also, mine has screws that are already in the top of the gun for a scope, they weren't drilled, it came that way.
