Four years ago I paid $249 plus Wisconsin sales tax for a 336 in 35 Rem (1972) in good operational shape. The bluing on the barrel had shallow, splotchy stains on it (light rust?). Seemed like a good deal to me. Last year i took an antelope and a forkhorn mule deer with it and factory ammo.
I swapped a pistol worth about 200.00 for a 336 .35. Most all the finnish is gone and the stock has been repaired. Cosmetically I rate mine at 65% -70%. Mechanically 95%. I am very pleased I live on the Florida Alabama line 40 miles from Georgia. In this area .35 Remingtons aren't that popular and you almost never see them for sale. Personally if I were you and had the money to buy it even if :shock: I had to let a 30-30 go.
Yes, the stocks were made by one of my best friends. I lusted after it since he built them, and sadly bought it from his estate after his recent death. He offered it to me for $250, near the end, and his wife was kind enough to give it to me at his price.
I bought another blank piece of wood from his estate, similar to that wood. I'm holding on to it for a special gun, if I ever find the right action!
