I have seen photographs of older 336's that were never drilled and tapped. Is there a proper name for the texturing on the top of the receivers of these rifles?
The word I use is the same nomenclature given to first press olive oil. Or a stand of timber never before cut. I don't see that as an objectionable word. If it is I apologize.Cedar Creek said:So - what do you call the rifles from '53 until factory drill & tap? Seems like I've heard them called "flat top".
I'd love to find a nice 1949 35rem. All the good things started that year. ;DBrian in FL said:There were no 336's made in 1947. The first year of production for the 336 was 1948. I'd love to find one from that model year. The earliest I've got is from 1949.
