for that large group of 35 Rem aficionados who may not know. I collect Marlin catalogs from 1948 onward, as 1948 was the introductory year for the Model 336; I'm still missing a few 50's era catalogs, but acquired an original 1950 catalog with price list this week. As everyone knows, 1950 was the year Marlin added the 35 Remington chambering to the Model 336 line-up; and that fact is dutifully stated in the catalog. What I didn't know was that Marlin did not catalog the ADL model as being available in 35 Rem, the ADL models only being offered in 30/30 Win and 32 Win Special calibers; nor was the 20" carbine model available in 35 Rem, the 35 Rem caliber only being offered in the 336A and 336SC models. But the item from this catalog that really stood out were the suggested retail prices. The 336SC in 30/30 Win and 32 Win Special listed at $61.45; but the 336SC in 35 Rem listed at $69.95. In the 336A models, the A's chambered in 30/30 Win and 32 Special listed at $72.55; but the same model chambered in 35 Rem listed at $82.55 (for only $4.95 more, $87.50; a guy could have purchased an ADL model in 30/30 and 32 Win Special). Obviously we'd all like to buy a few Marlins at these prices today; but in 1950 $10 was big money to the average guy; so this price difference no doubt kept sales of the Marlin 35 Rem lower than they would have been had that model been priced the same as the other calibers. So that's the skinny on the 1950 model 336A and SC Marlin 35 Rem lever guns; and I guess about the only thing one can draw from these facts is this. If you currently own a 1950 Model 336A or SC in 35 Rem, then you can rest assured that the original proud owner of that gun was so excited to have a 35 Rem lever gun that he was willing to pay a $10 premium for the privilege.
