I just stopped at LGS on way home from FT. Snelling Nat. cemetery. Low and behold there is a H prefix 1951 unmolested waffle top. It has a few issues its been reblued but looks good and has a replacement lever with wrong contour. I really want a 1952 built (my birth year) should I jump on it anyway $439 and I didn't try to dicker him down yet. Or maybe just wait for better gun. Thinking of checking interest on MO of someone trading my 444 JM marked Marlin for there 336- .35 Rem but it might be hard to find as the waffle tops where in a transition away from waffletop to plain old smooth top. Opinions please even though you guys are a bunch of enablers.

" or maybe just wait for better gun " only if you want a safe queen. Get down there and get that gun now, before Obama takes all your money. Lol

Most folks really are not happy, till they have just what they want. That said, finding that specific year in a local market could take a long time. Good to very good 1952's are on the online auctions all the time for around $500. A month worth of watching should turn one up. Pulled this guy off GunBroker, a 1952 336A 35 Rem, about two weeks ago for $300.00, don't know why nobody was bidding on it.

:hmmmm: What do you mean by "enablers" You're asking us, knowing full well what our advice is going to be! We are not enablers, we are a motivational fellowship. Now, buy the darn rifle and if it doesn't blow your skirt up, you have some very viable trading material. Just my opinion. :flute:
