    Marlin mod 36

    Hello I have a chance of getting a Mod 36 adl 30-30 win it has a 24" barrel,the wood is in great shape lots of nice grain. No checkering
    Looks like somebody tried to re- case harden the action and part of the barrel . It has been drilled and tapped for scope, barrel in great shape,
    I know that it is not a collector anymore, after being d&t. Can I fire modern ammo out of the rifle. And can it be re-blued to get rid of case hardening
    on the barrel. MIKE

    Casehardening on the barrel? The 36 wasn't casehardened anywhere, and especially not the barrel! If it really is casehardened then it will turn purple if it's hot blued over the hard surface. It would need to be rust blued, or annealed prior to bluing, if it's case colored. Cost would eat up a lot of bucks! Even if you got the 36 for less than $200, the cost of rust bluing or annealing and hot bluing would make the end gun more expensive than an unmolested original.
    On a sidenote; are you sure it's a real ADL, or just and ADL barrel on a std. 36? Marlin sent thousands of std. 36's out the door with barrels marked "36 ADL" and most weren't checkered. If it's checkered it should be real, otherwise it's just a ADL barreled 36.

    Does this rifle have a "B" prefix in the serial number? Does it have sling swivels with both front and rear attached with 2 wood screws and not inletted?

    I have a book that says the 36 ADL Deluxe was case colored- but not the barrel.

    I cant say that I have ever seen a true Model 36 with a case-colored receiver.I sure wouldn't go
    so far as to say Marlin never made a Model 36 with the receiver case-colored either.The late Model
    93's and the early Model 1936's are very close to being clones with only minor differences as left over
    parts of the Model 93's were being used up in the assembly of the early Model 1936's.If you don't want
    to look silly when it comes to Marlin I try not to say the words never,didn't,wouldn't,were noted for,always
    leave yourself a little room to wiggle out of a statement.With that being said I have seen a few rifles with
    24 inch barrels checked fore-arm and stock,with the barrel marked 36 A. Having the B prefix to the serial
    number,the larger flat bottom fore-arm but the tang marked Marlin Model 1936 in two lines and having the
    shorter tang with the coil spring and they had case-colored receivers.Keep in mind that parts left on hand
    show up a lot latter than one would think.This falls true with many time with any company in the manufacturing
    world,not just Marlin or guns.Would a barrel that had been case-hardened be safe

    There is a good chance the tang will be marked Marlin Model 1936 in two lines.
    More than likely the barrel will be marked Mod.36. Marlin is well noted for using
    up parts left on hand.More than likely the receiver was already marked Marlin
    Model 1936 before the Model number was changed to the Model 36.

    If the barrel reads Model 36, that put's it as a post WWII gun. Pre-war guns didn't have the model number on the barrel.

    New to site.was wondering if you could help me with a model 36 front sight .The barrel is dovetailed and flattened on top. Currently has dovetailed ramp sight on gun.Not original.Placing rear peap on gun and sight is not tall enough.Would love to put a original sight on. Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.
