I’m looking for some info on this 336 in 30-30 from 1976. I picked up a few months ago at the LGS. The proof mark on the receiver looks German.

A few folks here are up on proof marks and will be along to answer... All I can tell you is it has been across the pond and back... Maybe sold at an Army PX or even a European distributor...

Imported to Germany where all guns have to be proved. The eagle over 'N' (nitro) is a smokeless proof. Not sure about the others. 777 may be a date? I'll assume it made it's way home. Perhaps originally purchased in an Army PX in Germany? Meticulous Germans stamped them neatly.

First mark, Eagle over N, is a definitive proof, means it passed. 2nd is for Munich. 3rd may be the proofers employee number. 4th is the JM by Marlin. 5th I couldn't find...
