Came across a 30-30 336TK for $200 would like to get it but would like some more info on it, went through what info I got but nothing.
Does the T stand for Texas and is the K for KMart.
Also came across a 336 RC ($175) with a saddle ring in brass (ser# starting with Y) is this right or is it added on after the fact.
Thanks for any and all help.

ynot55,

I can't answer all your questions but those prices sound terrific.

Here is the list of Ser. # prefixes that tell you date of manuf.:
Marlin Manufacture Date Codes. S/N prefixes.
1940-41……………..B
1941…………………C
1947…………………D
1948…………………E
1949…………………F
1950…………………G
1951…………………H
1952…………………J
1953…………………K
1954…………………L
1955…………………M
1956…………………N
1957…………………P
1957-58……………..R
1958-59……………..S
1959-60……………..T
1960(August)-1961...U
1961(August)-1962...V
1963…………………W
1964…………………Y, Z
1965…………………AA
1966…………………AB
1967…………………AC
1968…………………AD, 68
1969…………………69
1970…………………70
1971…………………71
1972…………………72

Starting in 1973, the year of manufacture can be determined by subtracting the first two digits of the serial number from 100:
Example: SN 2112345 would have been made in 1979 [100 - 21 = 79].

Note 1: The 1939 Model 39-A had NO prefix - just the serial number.

Note 2: The above codes do not apply to .22 rimfire rifles (other than lever actions) prior to 1968. For rimfires manufactured in the years 62-68, see separate listing of barrel codes elsewhere.

Hey guys, don't forget about the "B" prefix for the 1940-1941 models. Also keep in mind that this letter(s) code really only applies to the 336 and 39 series lever action rifles prior to 1968. After 1968 all Marlins utilized the same dating prefix you have listed.

From 1962 thru 1968 Marlins rimfire rifles (other than the lever actions) used a two letter date code that was stamped on the barrel. This date code is different than the one already listed, as Marlin rimfire rifles (other than the model 39 series) did not have a serial numbers until required to by law after 1968. The first letter of the date code represented the month of manufacture while the second letter indicated the year. This date code was usually stamped on the left side of the barrel just in front of the receiver. The first letter of the date code is as follows:

A = Jan.
B = Feb.
C = Mar.
D = Apr.
E = May
F = June
G = July
H = Aug.
I = Sep.
J = Oct.
K = Nov.
L = Dec.
The second letter of the date code is as follows:
F = 1962
G = 1963
H = 1964
I = 1965
J = 1966
K = 1967
L = 1968
So a date code of "JK" would indicate that rifle was made in October of 1967. Hope this helps someone.
