Well, I went to the gun show in Sunday. One vendor have two new in the box 336's in 30-30. One was an Original Marlin and the other was a Marlin with REP on the barrel. I'm not sure when either was made, but the one with REP on the barrel have wood I wouldn't burn in my fireplace. It almost looked like putty, with not grain what so ever, and a terrible stain job. I think I will continue to buy used Marlins.

What model was it? They always had plain Jane birchwood stocks.

The new 336C that I saw had cruddy walnut on it too. It was very light, and had a weird finish/texture to it. They've got many kinks to work out.

It was a Birchwood stock, but even birchwood can look good. The finish on this one looked like orange/brown putty.
