    Model 336 R. C. 30-30 1964 - Collectible???

    Hi all, I am a big firearms enthusiast and love to shoot and collect all kinds. I am not an expert in Marlin rifles though. I am new to this forum, so thought I would share a very clean all original model 336 R. C. 30-30 produced in 1964. I love the walnut stock and forearm. So, I know this is a nice rifle, JM marked and from a good time period and all that. But is this a collectible? or just a real nice looking rifle to shoot? I would never drag this through the brush because it's super clean and well you just don't find clean 1964 rifles every day. In fact, I just bought a 1992 30AS for a jeep gun, that won't bother me to take out in the brush. So is this really a collectible? and what would this one go for? Not looking to sell. Thanks for your input. Mark

    Welcome to the forums from south Louisiana. I have a 1964 Marlin 39a to me it's hunter. I have a 1946 Marlin 39a to me is a collectible. Different people different visions. But you do have a very nice looking rifle. At my local gun shop $350 is the value of rifle.

    Up to you but not going to bring money in the thousands in the near future and was made for shooting. I would not drag it in the woods but I would not make a safe queen if it either myself. I would take good care of it and shoot it every chance In got. If it is what I needed to hunt with that's what me and the rifle would be doing. Just what it was built for.

    Looks nice. All JM Marlins in that shape are collectible to me. Especially the ones from the 60’s and back. They are my favorite ones. Seems like the wood was nicer in those days. The new Remlins are garbage in my opinion. They won’t make anymore like the one you have. With that being said, I shoot all of mine!

    Since you can still walk in to almost any gun shop anywhere and find at least one, I do not consider them collectible. They are among the nicest of rifles -- but there are literally millions of them around. From 1948 to 1983, 3.5 million made, second in number only to the Winchester 1894 among sporting rifles.

    It is both. It's a collectible gun that you can shoot, or hunt with. I'd of course not beat it around, as that would degrade it's value. But I'd certainly not relegate it to safe queen status when it's value is good, but not extremely high. Guns like this can still be found under $500, but they continue to climb IF kept in nice shape.
