    marlin lever

    so i bought this marlin lever action for $100 bucks decided to redo the blueing and serial number starts with c 2070 the letter c is smaller then the numbers so i take its not capital c and as i took of the butt stock found a letter Q stamped in it as well its says its a model 36 rc —-30/30——a wondering if anyone has any idea if its 1945/46 and what the letter Q would mean

    Small c is 1946... Marlin never used a Q or an O in their serial numbers... Might just be an assembly stamp... They were Model 36 through 1948 and then went to Model 336...

    Yep! Small c means it was built in 1946. As for the stock, pictures would help us tell you what you have.

    If it has a C and a square bolt, it was built in 1946. If it has a round bolt, it is a 336 and you're misreading the C.
