Due to a thread started on here by Anachronism, I became aware of the popularity of 1951 mfg Marlin 336A's. So I walk into my LGS on Monday to discover that he has just put one in .35 Rem on the rack. Gun looked nice so I came home and questioned the guys on here about the desirability of such a gun. They assured me that it would be a valuable addition to my collection if it was in decent shape. So I went back today and inspected it again. It is in beautiful condition with 95%+ metal and real nice wood. It has a Williams fencepost scope and peep sight mounted on it. Bore is really shiny with good grooves. I told him to put my name on it and I would redeem it next week so it's mine. Don't know what I'll do with two 35 Rems but couldn't pass it up. Maybe trade it for a .32? Pics later when I get it.
