    36A short ADL rifle or Bubba'd?

    Have had this 36a for 15yrs now and is the way I got it with Lyman sight, hooded front sight and sling studs. Everything I can find says the "A" was a 24" barrel only rifle, but this one is a 20". The wood is stamped with ser# also and should be A-DL I think.

    Yes I think it was cut from 24". I have a 336A in .35 Rem that has been cut to 18" and its one of my favorite rifles. That's a beauty.

    Hi 450yukon, I suspect a previous owner fancied a carbine and had his 36 A deluxe cut down by a gunsmith. I have a 1947 M36 A in 32 Special that has been cut down professionally as well, even has the same older Lyman peep sight. Great hunting rifle!

    Likely a cut down, but WWII was freshly over. There were no guns - and lots of other stuff - made for the civilian market from '42-'45 and the demand was great. Most factories were re tooled to resume production by early '46. Marlin may had orders for SC that needed filling and had 24" inch barrels warehoused so they may have cut them down at the factory. A guy named Art Hill, had been a rep for Winchester and later Browning. He told me to never say never about those two firms. They liked to please customers in days gone by. Maybe also true at Marlin?

    Nice property either way,
    Jack.
