    Trying to verify date of manafacture for Model 1936 32 special, ? Price

    I clicked on the pages to verify the serial #, year production of a Model 1936, in .32 special I have. It has 85-90% of the case remaining, the blue is immaculate, the barrel inside is in mint condition. The action locks up like a new bank vault. I would say the gun has had less than 100 rounds thru it. The only blue wear is on top of the hammer, where the slide contacts it when it comes back. I took the bolt out, and the case inside the receiver is all there, as well as on the bolt on the contact side. The only spot the case shows any wear is in front of the lever where it looked to be carried a lot, but most of the case is there, just thinning a little. The serial number is B9967. The wood is in pretty good shape, has most of the original finish/varnish, with some light scratches here and there, and a little rash on the bottom edge of the pistol grip.. The tang is drilled and tapped from the factory for a tang peep sight, and Marlin is in between the screw holes. Can anyone give me a year of manufacture, and what the approximate worth is. I am selling to pay some extensive medical bills. I don't want to high ball the price, but don't want to give it away either since this is the best condition 1936 I have seen in private hands in KY and the surrounding states. All help will be greatly appreciated, I can send pics to someone who can post them for me, Pm me...

    Pics sent to Scorpiusb, and edited the post, it is a 1936 model. I get terribly mixed up at times, had 3 strokes in one day last year! Thanks for understanding.

    One other thing to consider here... They were called Model 1936 in the years 1936 and early 1937... Yours says "Model 1936"... They were called Model 36 from late 1937 through early 1948... The serial number information for Marlins is not available for 1907 through 1940... So, with a 4 digit serial number with a B in front of it, this could easily be a 1937 year gun...

    Alright, I had time to do a little Brophy research... Your rifle is an early 1937, 2nd variation, Model 1936... One sold on Gunbroker 2 months ago for $650.00. However it had been restored and blued, not color case hardened...

    Yours is a Marlin 1936 built in 1941, I have B9595.
    Collected from various sources:
    Marlin Model 1936 Stamped on the upper tang produced from 1936 to 1941
    Serial numbers are on the lower tang under the lever.
    There's no sure way to know the exact year of production for numbers without a letter prefix.

    All B Prefix serial numbers were second variation built in 1941
    B-prefix series: Changes to unfluted comb & skinny forearm, hard rubber buttplate w/ phillips screws, upper tang was shortened and the use of coil mainsprings vice leaf mainsprings. 1941 Production.

    No production late 1941 to late 1945

    Marlin Model 36 produce 1945 to 1947
    these no longer had Model 1936 on the tang but Model 36 is marked on the barrel
    these receivers were blued vs the 1936 models which were case colored
    C prefix =1945
    c (little c) = 1946
    D = 1947
    Model 36 ceased production in 1948 and the Model 336 began in June 1948
