I picked up a pretty nice Marlin today. A Model 336 chambered in 35 Remington. Got nearly three full boxes of old Federal factory ammo with the deal. It's pretty clean....I'm confident it's close to 98%...a few screws bungied up....but other than that...nice wood and nice blue.

A few pics are attached (sorry, I did not have time to wipe the gun down before snapping the pictures).

Question(s):

With the less-than full length tube magazine, is this considered a rifle, a carbine, a short rifle???

With standard rifling (non-micro groove) is this gun "more desirable" in the market?

If I put the gun on the classifieds, where would you recommend I price it to be fair to both parties?

Thank you!
Bob

It's called the Model 336SC, or sporting carbine. 1955 was the first year 336 frames came factory drilled and tapped for scope mounts; and your rifle will also have the desirable Ballard rifling, the change to Micro Groove rifling taking place in 1956 (the one exception being the 1955 model 336SC/219 Zipper, which was always produced with Micro Groove rifling).

She's a real beauty! If you decide to sell I'd like first chance.

vonfatman,

That's a beautiful rifle or ummmm, carbine!!! ;)

The 20" barrel makes it a carbine, the magazine length doesn't matter.

I wish I had the funds to make you an offer on it myself!!!
I have a '55 336rc in .35 rem, the craftsmanship of rifles produced during that time period is of very high quality!!!

I'd give you $100 no questions asked. ;D Seriously, that is a great looking rifle. I have a feeling I'll have to add a nice vintage model like that down the road. Nice acquisition!

Thanks gents...I'm happy to have added this rifle to my meager Marlin accumulation.

I needed another gun like a whole in my head, but what can a guy do when he's offered such a clean example?

Thanks for the information on this model. I do not have many Marlins and depend upon all you folks with experience to get me up to speed. I suppose if the "addiction"/affliction continues I will need to start to buy some reference manuals/books.

vonfatman....
Do yourself a huge favor and delete the two photos showing the full serial # or smudge them in Paint Shop and re-post. Scammers will use those given the opportunity.

Very Nice Find. :)
