I believe Halloween Jack has the right prospective here. The Sporting Carbine (sc) has the 20" barrel and short magazine (2/3 mag) with the barrel bands. It a shorter version of the older 336A which has the 24" barrel and short magazine. Both tended to have the larger (fatter) forearms.Halloween Jack said:Some report experiencing better accuracy with the SC and A models. I think there's an aesthetic preference as well.
I have 4 old 336's and they are all RC's. One of them is a 35. It is my avatar on the left. I kinda have a thing for the RC's.Canuck Bob said:Very nice Halwg.
The condition is very good. I'm guessing from the comments that a 35 isn't a run of the mill find. The 35 just makes such sense up to closer moose. Bullet choices rivaling 30 cal, 200 gr slugs that whack but don't kick a weak mind stupid and balanced ballistics right in the cast sweet zone.
Did the older RCs ever come in a 35? Hunting a rifle is almost as much fun as hunting with a rifle.
Thanks Jack, there are a few of us 49ers on here. I couldn't find a 1949, so I got a 1952. The only difference you can see is the lever.Halloween Jack said:The ad explains all. An A for open country long range shooting. An RC for horse back or brush shooting. The SC is the perfect balance between the two, fast handling and accurate too. ;D
