Hi all,
I'm new to this forum because I just acquired a Marlin rifle from my grandfather. I know nothing about this gun and was hoping some of the experts here could give me a quick blurb about it. I do plan on reading through the forums in detail but that will take a while so any info is appreciated.

This is what is stamped on the gun:

The Marlin firearms co New Haven Conn
Est 1870 micro groove barrel mod. 336-44 magnum
AA 13XX

It also has a saddle ring on the left side

Thanks

Its a 1965 saddle ring Texan. The fluted Walnut stock and forend are probably Billy-Club hard by now...Excellent gun ;D

If you run into any accuracy problems with ultra fast stuff it could be the number of twist in the barrel. I don't think you should have a problem.

Excellent 125 yard gun. I probably would not scope it because of what it is and the distance limits, but thats your call.

I think that model rates high on the lever cool factor. 8)

And, as this model was only available from '63-67, it is a relatively rare model; and really nice examples will fetch a premium on the gun auction circuit.

Thanks for the info. Just downloaded the disassembly guide from this site and can't wait to take it apart and clean it. Looks like it'll be a blast to shoot.

What was [I suppose "is" would be better] the twist on these and their saddle-ring-less brother 44 magnum 336's?
