According to Brophy's, you have a 336SD (Sporting Deluxe) of which only 4,392 were manufactured from 1955 to 1962. The suggested retail price was $94.95 in 1960. I'd say you have a real deal there ;D. I have a real nice '61 336SC and by the time I develop a nice hunting load for it, I am thinking it will be one of my favorites. I love the finish on these early '60 models.mikem2 said:Thanks, this was a lucky find!
If that is what you like and are comfortable with, then use that setup. Here is my 1951 336A .35Rem with a vintage Weaver scope/rings/base set about as low as I could go with these. Most Marlin users, but not all, prefer a low mounted scope setup for a better cheek-weld when shooting.mikem2 said:I like using the weaver see thru bases/rings on the 336 carbines in .35, going to try the same set-up on this one!
