1936 rifle

my great grandpa bought a model 1936 lever rifle in december 1937 it has been passed down and I ended up with it when I was about 8 it is very nice and is fitted perfectly it has a full length magazine tube 20 inch barrel a walnut stock that looks exellent exept for a few nicks the local gunsmish said every thing is origanal exept that it had a set of sling swivals and a leather sling added somewhere down the line. I dont plan on selling it but would like to know what its worth I dont have a camera so I cant take any pictures

Re: 1936 rifle

Sounds like a nice gun to have. The 1936's dont bring all that much although an early one in good shape might bring more. Is it a carbine (barrel bands) or Rifle? What caliber?

Re: 1936 rifle

For comparison I just paid 400 for one in what looked to be rough conditon, it cleaned up nice, needed a buttplate and some 0000 steel wool on rust spots, wood only needed oil. It came out not looking cleaned just nice, Sharp eye would catch the reproduction buttplate I put on. It's also missing the front sight hood which cost over 50 bucks most of the time off fleabay Plate and Hood will add 100 to the cost total. It was listed in a local shop for 500 some time no takers. It's also a 36A full rifle which some think are worth more others don't think so. I don't have it for sale but if I did it would be 600 bucks.

Condion sells rough sits.

Re: 1936 rifle

I say carbine but I dont know it has a short barrel sort of like a 1894 in 44 mag I thought it had a full length tube like my 1894 does but has a 2/3 length tube on it like my 1895 in .45-70 I have a friend a little further down the road who is a marlin collector Im planning on doing some hog hunting down that way tommaro Im going to stop by and ask him about it

Re: 1936 rifle

Sounds like a sporting carbine. 20" barrel, forend tip instead of barrel bands & a short mag. To ME thats a better configuration than a regular carbine.
