Wasn't planning on buying it, but it followed me home today.

It's a 1969 336 35 rem pistol grip, williams peep and it's not in bad condition, but not excellent. Has some bluing marks, but for a gun that is 42 years old I think it adds character. The guy selling was original owner and didn't even shot an entire box through it.

Not sure what I am going to do with it yet, but I didn't want to regret passing it up.

What do these usually go for at guns shows or shops in your area?

Thanks

Don't see 35's for sale much around here. Their around, just not for sale. 30-30's in that shape with the peep mounted would be 375.00 up to 525.00 Local pawn shop has a couple of30-30 AS in rough shape for 275 and 289, Glenfield 30 covered with rust and 40% of the finish missing on the stocks for 300. :p Gun shows have gotten crazy as well. I would say you got a darn nice old 35. DP

I've paid as little as $225 for one and as much as $735 for a sweet Texan with a Leupold 2 - 7 X 32 through Gun Broker. That Texan really pushed the average up considerably. I figure for a 336C around here I wouldn't pay more than $300, and it had better be in right beautiful condition.

Some guy posted on MO the other day that he was at a gun show with a Marlin over his shoulder and a dealer told him. "Marlin's ain't worth nuttin".

I'll give you twice that much for yours! ;D ;D

Nice rifle Socom, and the peep is a good bonus. I have the same year model .35 that is very clean and paid $300. Some find them for less and some pay more. Gun shops around here ususally have them priced in the $350-$400 range in the condition you describe. Typically, somewhere in between. I've seen some pretty banged up 336's around here selling for $375 lately.

I'd give yours a good cleaning and use the heck out of it. You will not outlast it. :D

I bought a 1955 336RC in 35rem for $375.00. It had only been shot 4 times and I got the twenty round box of ammo with 4 missing with the gun.

Nice find. I got two 35's. The first one a 1977 336rc with a Japan Tasco at a pawn shop for 325.00 last june, not perfect but real nice after some TLC. The other is a 1962 336sc for 360.00, also from a pawn shop, last October. Both shoot 11/2 inch groups at 100 yards. I'm sure you will like how it shoots.

I'd sure like to find an sc in 35 rem made in 62. It'd be the same age as me!! If you ever want to get rid of your '62 let me know, I'd be interested. ;D

D White I just got this one last fall. Went hunting with it last fall and did't get a deer, so I guess I'll have to keep it. I got lucky finding it. I'll keep you in mind. Scott

They go for $350 for beaters, to $700 for nice ones. Average around here for a 336 is probably north of $400.

Looks good Socom...wear on a hunting rifle is honest wear and adds to the piece's appeal to me. How's it shoot? You'll never regret the price so put it out of your mind...if it had got away...you'd always wonder. I'm 64 and I've got several over the years that still wake me in the wee mornin' hours..."what if"...the most tragic words in the English language....

Good wood City on both guns but that upper one is fantastic... but beauty is only skin deep, Padnuh... 1-1/2" gps at 100 yds, that's the real proof of the puddin'. Congrats...Rod

Thanks for the replies. I think I might clean it up a little and take it to the range to see how it shots.

The story behind this 336 is I just bought 3 marlins (only planned on buying one but ended up with 3) and contacted my FFL to let him know they were coming. He mentioned that he has a nice 336 in 35 that isn't too old and was just about to put on gb and he would give me first shot at it if I stopped over.

I went over as soon as I got off work and liked everything about the gun and saw the first two digits of the serial number were 69. I asked him how much and he said $250. I told him it is probably worth more, but if he only wants $250 I'll take it. So it followed me home.

I need to get some ammo now and shot it this weekend.
