Hey guys I just finally bought a 35 rem off gunbroker. It was a NIB 336CS. About a week ago when I bid on it I was just thinking that They changed to the C before Remlin took over. But since nobody bid on it I'm thinking it has to be a Remlin. I was sitting here watching football and got an email saying I bought it. The pictures were pretty weak but it looks like Marlin cut checkering.

Here was the only photo of the rifle. I didn't expect to buy it but even if it's a Remlin I did ok for a NIB rifle. Of course as long as they actually ship it. :)

The 336CS was changed to the 336C model long before Marlin merged with Remington. If the seller read the barrel stamping correctly--that should be a JM Marlin.

1984 is when the 336 became 336 CS "Carbine Safety" long before Remington took over.

Looks like the wood to metal fit is good,more then likely is a "Marlin":biggrin:

Yeah it is a 336CS I saw the pics of all the packaging. I couldn't make out a barrel stamp and honestly I didn't want to ask any questions that would lead one to update the description. Then the price would have went up.

That looks like it's from the 1990-1998 era. It will have a flat brown butt pad with a white spacer. And yes cut checkering. You did good.

Just received a message from the seller that he is selling his late fathers collection. It's probably a real marlin.

When you are paying for something it should not be a problem qualifying what you are buying. I would not be afraid to ask questions. As time goes on I see Marlins for sale and have a least an idea of when it was made. When in doubt, ask for the serial number. Otherwise you are bidding on the blind.

I'm glad oduff pointed out the butt pad, I can't see it on my screen but it's the first hint I looked for. Good find, wonder if the gent is selling any more Marlins from his dad's collection...

I wasn't totally blind. I was 99% sure the CS was an older rifle and I would have paid that for a NIB Remlin. It was when I bought it that I second guessed myself. Haha If the seller updates the title with "JM stamped" or " pre Remington" then I have to bid against you guys lol and I never outbid anyone here.
