Took my rookie neighbor out to buy his 1st deer rifle the other day. The 1st shop we hit had a pristene 336 with no other leter designation in 35 cal. It is a pistol grip with a smooth stock and NO cross bolt safety. The gun was from an estate sale and it still had its original box. To me the gun looks unfired as the hammer was still unmarked. The cost was $250.00 and I told him to jump on it. Can someone fill me in on what this is and its guesstimated worth. I tried to trade him one of my 336CS guns but he is reluctant.
