I was browsing the Marlin website and see they now have the 1894 and 336 in a deluxe model. It has #1 select wood and is hand assembled/tuned by a "Marlin Master Gunsmith", for a premium price I would assume. I wonder if these will be any better then the run of the mill guns?

I think when Marlin did this in 2009 the were Listed for around around $799 for the 336 and $899 for the 1894

If I were to spend that kind of money 336 Deluxe I would buy and Older "JM" Deluxe

Remember-----------these are Remlin "Master Gunsmiths " we're talking about-------just saying -----:vollkommenauf: the nice part is they won't charge extra for canted drooped barrels, slashed fingers from levers or the "custom " credit card relief left around the stock to tang fit. Good Luck.

If you're going to spend that kind of money go on GB and pick out whatever JM marlin you like, $799 to $899 may just about buy any of them.

I saw one on the used rack last year. Wood was beautiful. I'm talking wood like a high grade Shotgun. I was thinking, dang that's a good looking gun... Then I shouldered it and did a double take. The front sight wad canted off to the right a good bit. I'm talking OBVIOUS cant, not just a little. If I recall, they wanted $699 or $799. I just laughed, put it back on the track and moved on.

My little blurb in my signature line still had not been fulfilled.

I haven't seen one yet around here; just the catalog picture some time back. I can't recall seeing/reading about anyone getting one anywhere either actually...

Buy an older one. Buy some semi finished wood in an extra grade. Then take your time and make your own deluxe.

For stocks I like these folks, and you have to kind of mix it up for different things. For instance, if you want a Crescent buttstock and plate you have to go to their cowboy stocks for the butt. Then to the 336 for the fore end. Little pricey but not that bad for a custom piece of wood.

that is a different model, the deluxe doesn't have the fancy engraving on the wood or metal. Basically it's just a regular 336 with fancy wood and a forearm end cap instead of a rear barrel band. Oh, and it's built by a "Marlin Senior Craftsman":hmmmm:.


ETA. I have no intentions of buying one(or any Remlin), I was just curious if this is Remington's way of trying to get a better gun out to the consumer. Make them pay more for a hand built custom model that is basically the same as the run of the mill JM guns.
