Could be the real deal. But, then again, I have a 1967 vintage plain-Jane 336 that's far, far nicer than any current production gun finish-wise. maybe they had a special serial number range? Might be worth a bit of research.Douglas34474 said:Thank you for the info.
Not sure if it is the real McCoy or not, but like I said, this one has the best metal work I have seen. I own three other Marlins and this one is by far the best looking one I have.
Now you have opened up a can of worms for me. I know by the serial number that my 336 is a 1970. I am going to have to check into this. Thanks for the information Douglas.Douglas34474 said:I finaly called Marlin and they tell me that all '70 models had this and that it nothing special.
