    Model 36 vs. Model 36A

    What are the differences between Model 36 and Model 36A rifles? Are these two distinct models, or is the 36A just an improved Model 36? I'm sorry to have to ask such a basic question, but I've spent several hours searching the forums for answers with no clear results.

    A Marlin 1936/36 was the model that was offered after the 1893/93 model and shares many parts.There was a rifle length version called an "A" with 24" barrel.SC's had 20" barrel with short mag tube and "C" Carbine with 20" barrel and full mag tube.These were made from 1936-1947 and they were square bolts like the present day 1894.The 336 came out in 1948 and was the totally redesigned .Dont confuse these 36's with the Marlin-Glenfield 36.The Glenfield was a less costly version of the 336.Generally speaking the Glenfields had less costly wood on them and less frills.Notice I didnt say Cheap version as that may tend to make people think they were junky and wouldnt shoot,which is not the case.They are every bit as good as a 336 model.

    36A has a 24" barrel and 2/3 mag. 36A-DL is the same rifle, but with a little nicer checked wood and sling studs.

    Most Models of the 36 are often just referred to as a Model 36 Marlin. The various sub species of the A, ADL, and C, are all Model 36 Marlins. Hope this answers your question.
