Good afternoon all. I have just picked up a Glenfield model 36 and need some info on it. I will come back and post a picture tomorrow, but for now, i am having trouble finding accurate info on this rifle. It is a Glenfield, Model 36, 30-30 serial number is Z22XXX. Can anyone enlighten me? Also, thank you for allowing me to join this group. I have read a lot of threads here but just joined today.

THis is just a little fun with my Revelation model 200M. Zero at 50 yards. The three groups with daylight in them were standing. I think this is one of the finest Marlins I have ever shot. The Glenfield model 36 is a curiosity to me. Thank you for the help.

I also have a Model 36 Glenfield that I found several years ago in a small area gun shop. I have asked for info in several different places online and like you so far..I can't seem to get any good answers on its "story."

The Glenfield series was made as a lower cost Marlin with birch stocks and the older style dove tail iron sights found on Marlins in the 40s and 50s. They were sold at LGSs, auto parts, and hardware stores back in the day. I believe that the Glenfield Model 36 was sold between 1964-1965 before being replaced by the Glenfield Model 30 in 1966. There are several different types of Glenfields made over the years--Texans with the straight handled stock, 20 inch barreled carbines with a full length magazine tube, a sporter style carbine with the 1/2 length tube magazine---etc. Online gun sale site prices for Glenfields usually run between 250-450 bucks depending on condition, model type, and accessories (such as a Marlin factory scope). This is not a complete history of the Glenfield but hopefully it sheds some light what your Marlin is. I have a Glenfield Model 30A made in 1981 and its a great shooter.

Hello and welcome to Marlinowners from Pennsylvania!! Good shooting! That's a keeper!
The model 36G(Glenfield)was made for two years,1964&1965 in.30-30 cal.. Then the 36G became the model 30 in 1966. Then the model 30A and then 30AS.
I think all had birch stocks except some of the 1964 36Gs had walnut. A few .35 REM were made in the model 30.
Like Ret_Eng and others said.
Enjoy
