I wouldn't but I'm sure there are a handful of serious collectors who will and it may be one of those deals where it goes for more than the buy it now. I love stuff like that but I want to shoot it.

Beautiful ADL and certainly tempting to say the least. NIB unfired in all original condition... oh my, not like I haven't been searching for one for years! But... it's a 30-30. Now, if it were a 336 ADL in 35REM I'd pay more than the current bid for sure. Not sure how high I'd go but let's just say the temptation of having it would put a dent in my wallet!

Nice looking Marlin for sure.

I would do it if I had some spare playing around cash as there will not be many of those to pick from down the road. Many spend that for a weekend at the beach or a weekend at the casino. At least this way you have something next week. It is all relative to a persons budget and time in life I guess.

I have a 336-ADL in .35 that is as nice as the Gunbroker rifle except for a storage issue on the barrel 3 inches down from the front sight. It's a 1955 model factory drilled and tapped with the original filler screws in place and the factory sling swivels.

I didn't think they started drilling them until 1956. Maybe there were some done with late 1955 serial numbers also or I could have gotten ban information.

Since I just paid 900 bucks for a 338MX and ammo--I can see why some Marlins get into that $1K range.

They started drilling them in '55.

I had the same reaction. "If it was only .35 Rem..."

Still dreaming. Don't have that cash right now, but if I was rolling in scratch, I'd do it. Taken on it's own, the 30-30 is a fine caliber...

It's only when you compare it to the mighty .35 Rem that it seems anemic! :biggrin:

It would have to be a 32 Special or 35 with the original swivels and the books with it for me to pay it. Yes the over runs on the checkering are common on the Deluxe rifles. I just replaced the spacers on two of those Deluxe models for a friend and they both had over runs but they are probably better left as is. I have fixed over runs and bad borders on guns that were valued less and some valued higher but the owner has to make the decision. Winchester Model 75 Sporter and Remington 513S are two good examples of terrible borders on there checkering. Some examples are worse than others no matter the brand.

This may be a dumb question. Are overruns in the hand checkering common back then?
Hard to believe that's a professional checkering job! I guess the person who did the work was having a bad day......

Nice 336A.I would say its worth the money.I have had two ADL`s and the checkering sucked on both.So did the checkering on the vaunted pre 64 Winchester Mo.70s.I have a hand checkered Cooper Rifle and they do it right.

I like it but just to look at. I use all of my guns. I'd be reluctant to use that one. My 336 does the same thing as the nearly $1100 rifle but for lots less money. AND it wont be the end of the world if I scratch it.
