Has anybody ever compiled a directory for the suffixes giving the common name and attributes such as barrel length, tube length, stock shape, lever shape etc…?

I have a 339A but don’t know what the A stands for. I’ve also read about SC’s, T’s, RC’s etc..

Can anybody help?

Thanks,
dean

As jayhawker posted, CS= carbine safety, or "crossbolt safety".

The "CS" nomenclature was issued after the crossbolt (I have also heard it refered to as "crossblock") safety was installed in about 1983. Some like it, most don't.

Also they have the the new 336A's that are carbines with cheap wood.

I sure wish they had come up with a different letter for the cheap versions of the 336. :(

Thanks for all the input from my original post. But this answers only half my question. Now that you've provided a bunch of suffixes, what destinguishing characteristics identify the various suffixes? (barrel length, stock shape, lever shape, etc...)
thanks,

Orignal A = 24" barrel, 2/3's magazine, pistol grip

SC= 20" barrel, 2/3's magazine, pistol grip

RC=20" barrel, full length magazine, pistol grip

T=20" barrel, full length magazine, straight grip

For the others just grab a current Marlin catalog at your sporting goods store and you will see all the others.
