My research found very few information on the T serial numbered 336. Other then made in 1960, does anyone know anything more about these rifles? Mellalurgy, etc. One of the guys at my LGS called me about one they just received in a trade. I got excited of course and will see it tomorrow. LGS guy said its in good shape. No rust, no buggered up screws, good wood, front side hood, gold trigger, smooth action. I trust him. Price is under 3 bills.

Teah the T means it was made in 1960, I'd say for under three out the door. You couldn't go wrong, and we will need to see a picture when you get her home.

Go for it!
I would be waiting at the door for when he opens for under $300

Is it a SC....C...A..? What Cal.?

I got a "T" 1960 SC and a show last summer and paid $450.00 for it,but it was a .32Spl.

Ya can't beat a Marlin made in the 60's


A 60's 336 will be drilled and taped at the factory which I like cause my huntin days are over with open sights

I'm no expert, but I have a "T" prefix serial number 336 and I was under the impression that the prefix indicated it was a Texan model. Mine is a straight stock rifle, in 35rem and I thought it was correct. Mine only says 336 on the barrel and no where does it say Texan on the rifle, barrel or receiver. I could understand if the barrel marking 336 was followed with SC or RC or Texan. But it is confusing without photo or detailed information. Come Monday when its in your hands you'll know.

I always thought of this as a Texan, but now after reading some of this thread I wonder if it is just an RC with a straight stock.

I'll be watching what other information you get on the "T" serial number.

I think you have a 1960 Texan. The T in the serial number is just a nice touch, since they were made 1952-1962

Texans are not marked as such. They are identified by a straight grip stock. Otherwise they are alike the pistol grip. Both should be marked as RC (regular carbine) on the barrel.

T designates year of manufacture for all models produced 1960.

Thanks for clearing it up. Did not intend to hijack this thread. I thought the Texans were barrel marked with a "T" or Texan.
