I just bought an used 336 and i have a questions. The serial number begin with 68 933xx is there anyone who can tell me the year of production. The number is placed under the lever and it have an micro-groove barrel with an JM stamp on the right side. It also have an JM mark on top of the hammer.
There are no cross bolt safety. Will this weapon be able to handle pressure from Hornady LE ammo.









Best Regards from Denmark

Absolutely! It will handle any factory ammo!
It was made in '68......the safeties weren't added until '83. If you're referring to the JM on the hammer spur it is an original....hang on to it, they go for up to $30 on ebay.

The scope I´ve mounted is an Hawke Endurance 1,5-6*42. Action on the rifle is very smooth and it have very fine triggerpull, much better as my SBL 45/70. Now it´s only to find out how it shoots, hope I will find time in the weekend.Bought some Hornady RN 150 grain.

AD = early '68......His prefix = 68 so it was made in '68 also

Was out burning some powder today. Distance was 100 meters and spread was 40-45 mm on the groups with Hornady RN 150 grain factory load, so I am satisfied

Very nice looking rifle. I have to ask, how easy is it to find a Marlin in Denmark? DP

It`s kind of hard to find to find those old Marlins in Denmark, new ones are not so rare. But one thing is to find the riffle another to the ammo. I`ts easier to find ammo for my 30/30 in differerent brands, if we talking ammo for my 45/70 there are 2 brands the 325 LE from Hornady and the 300 grain JHP from Remmington
