My 338MX--only 5000 total of the 338MX/MXLR rifles were made before Remington took over.

I have an original 35 Rem marauder from 1963 that I know is pretty scarce. They made them in 3030 and 35 Rem for a little over a year and a third of them were in the 35. My understanding is they’re not more than 500 to 1000 of them that were made in that caliber.

I have three from the very early 1900's that have special order features, all mine have warts, but are shoot able. My current favorite is a deluxe 1893 pistol grip with 26" half round 38-55 that now has three silhouette match wins, even with me steering it.

I forgot about my 1973 336A in 35 Rem. Only 1200-1400 of the second generation 336As were made in 35 Rem during 1973. The rest of the 1973-1980 336A run was all in 30-30.

Ed, I agree that 35 Marauder is pretty rare, and congrats on that one.
Not really rare, but my oldest is a 1892 made in 1899 in 32 colt.

I have an 1892 ca 1895 that's original in VGC and very shootable with appropriate lead loads and a 1889 44-40 ca 1893 in also VGC with a fine bore that's not easy to find.

There's quite a few "rare" or hard to find models; 219 Zipper (especially the SD), 336ER, late vintage SD's and ADL's, 338 MX/MXLR, etc. but all those models were released into production. The really rare models are the prototypes that were never released to the public such as the M3000 chambered in 250 Savage and the 336ER chambered in 307 Winchester; and there are other examples.

What’s an SD model?
