I have spent a good deal of time reading up on the model 336 and am ready to purchase my 2nd marlin lever gun (unfortunately I sold my very 1st deer rifle many decades ago - a 336??). I definitely want one in .35 Remington, but what model, don't know, I am open to suggestions. If I can only have one lever in .35 rem and I would like one that does have collectors' interest either now or in the future - what would be my options? I realize that any response will be of a personal choice and that is OK. Thanks in advance for any responses. Palumj

Welcome from Goldthwaite, TX! Glad you've joined us! I'd say a nice 336 JM marked in 35 Rmington is not going down in price any time in the near future! Just my 2 cents! John

Just purchased my first 336 & waiting for delivery. It will be interesting to fire the lever action as I have semi autos & bolt action rifles including military rifles.

Welcome from Key Largo, When you get your 336 in 35 Remington you will be happy, until you see a really nice beautiful 336 in 30-30, then you will be like me, you will have to have it also, that`s how it begins!!! :flute:

Welcome from Micanopy Florida. These guns are fun to shoot and easy to take care of. It still amazes me it took me so long to start buying them as I grew up loving the Westerns and the rifles they had.

First off Hello and Welcome to Marlin Owners from the State of South Dakota

Second: if you are wanting collector quality Marlin in a 35 Rem. I would try to find and buy a Model 336A or a pre 1982 336c in 35 rem. The Pre 1982 will give you a pre hammer block safety marlin. The hammer block safety came out in 1982. The pre block Marlins are in high demand right now and will be more so over the next few years. These guns in time will command a premium in years to come. Just some food for thought.

I'd say take your time and hit the pawn shops. That's where the treasures are found. Good luck and happy hunting! Oh, and welcome from Oklahoma.

Hello & Welcome from a small bluff n W TN.

Alot of good suggestions already, the SC vs the RC depends on which you like. The SCs without the second barrel band are said to be a little bit more accurate. But you know what they say about opinions, any way. The store brand models seem to be gaining some respect of lately. Thats what I just bought, a Sears Model 45 J C Higgins, mine seems to be pretty darn good.
Around here we don't see many ,35s if any. The Waffle Tops are prety collectable, but you want one thats not been D&Ted "drilled & tapped".
Good luck in your search, the search is a lot of the fun, enjoy.



ps; when you find the one like, we will need to see some pics. lol

Welcome from sunny NE Indiana. Get a shooter, there are so many aspects of collecting that it takes some research and good knowledge to do well. Shooting is way more fun anyhow, shooting at game doubly fun.:tee:
