QUOTE=comanche8f;1732990]Just don't know, just got into marlins about a month ago. I have 2 336 30-30s from the 60's and 336sc .35 from '62. So basically I only know crap about 336's, and I am not really sure I know anything about them for that matter[/QUOTE]

Comanche,
There really isn't that much to know. The 336 comes from the ancestor the 1893 which was designed for a heavier action than the Marlin 1892. The 1894 has a less powerful action than say the 1895. That's why you won't see a .38-55 or a .45-70 in an 1894 Marlin.

As to worth it on the 1894 .44 mag @ $500, yes it is worth it. Run don't walk and buy that sucker! It will make a great companion if you have a .44 piece. :)
Here are 2 pics of a .44 mag I bought while I was in the hospital & depressed.

Comanche,
Don't worry about the stocks that much. Around these parts, that is called "honest wear" & is most desirable in an older gun. Think of old furniture and how the value goes down if refinishing is evident.
