Short story, traded a "99 336w 30-30 for a 1971 336 35rem.

Long story,
My brother in law sold his ajpg
nd he knocked off 200 and got the 336w. I bought it from him for 200 cash. Bam love it, I had it for about a month and thought about posting it on armslist for 350 to see if I got any hits. Well I did, for a mossy oak Mossberg 835 12g. I'm not much of a fan for fancy camouflage so I passed. A few days, today June 15th I woke up with an itch for that shotty, so I done some research on the internet about stuff I could do to it. For ex buy a slug barrel and turn it into a slug machine.
I texted the guy " You still interested in the trade for the 336w for the Mossberg shotty?" He replied within 2 minutes " sorry its already gone, but I have a marlin in 35 rem" I about crapped myself. Luckily I was on the toilet so it would've been fine. We exchanged some info on the rifles and I meet him an hr later and done the trade.
Its like I was suppose to get this rifle or something. Either way 200 dollars and I have a pre cross safety 336 marlin in 35 rem, I think I did good. Its not perfect but sure is beautiful to me.

Well, there ya go. Did he or you through in any ammo? Brass? If you don't reload you could have sold the brass and really sweetened the deal.

Congrats, and I think you came out way ahead, ha! I personally prefer my rifles from around that time frame, with smooth stocks, gold trigs, nicer bluing, etc. Enjoy...

I love the smooth stock, I didn't realize it had no checkering in the pictures he sent me. Also love the 35rem I'll be hunting some black bear this winter.

Any who, this has that old rear sight, how do you sight it? Doesn't look like you can move it around.
And the for end, How you do take it off, I undone the band but the front swing swivel is in the way, and it is stripped my guess some one had the same thought as me. Lol

You adjust the rear sight by moving the sight in the direction you want the bullet to go. There is an elevator under the sight that looks like a saw blade. Move it up or down depending on where it's hitting the target. To move the sight left or right you have to drift the sight in the dovetail. If the sling swivel is on the mag. tube and is stripped cut it off. They are usually two pieced and if you cut it off just above the screw it should come off in two pieces. Pictures would help. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, my rear sight does not have the sawblade like ramp, the other marlin I had does.
