I am now the proud owner of a Marlin 336c in .35 remington! My best friends dad's co-worker happened to have one in his closet that he never used. Well to say the least I got a great deal. The gun was shot 7 times and then placed in the original box only to sit in the guys closet for 15 years. I bought it from him for $150 and the gun is 99%. Besides a small blemish in the stock, nothing serious, the gun looks as if it was straight from the factory. Hopefully I can get out and shoot it this weekend!
