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!
I've done that and it works good.gewehr said:You can make new white spacers from Clorox jugs if you wish, and they won't shrink or fade like the original material.
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!
