Have a Marlin 336 S.C. in .35 Rem. the serial number is 2750. I cannot locate any information on the year of manufacture. It's an older 336, possibly from the early to mid 1950's based on the history of that caliber and model. But I cannot locate any information that can give an exact date of manufacture. Any help?

Check your serial number again. I have a 336SC and it starts with G and then 4 numbers. Mine came in made when I was (1950) ! LOL! Good gun!

Pull the stock off and look at the inside of the tangs and or remove the recoil pad. Sometimes the serial # was hidden inside during production to keep the stock and rifle together. As they were hand matched during early production.

Has it been refinished? May be that the prefix letter was buffed out. If the gun is from the 50's, it will have a letter prefix serial number.

I had an old SC in 35 Rem. one time that had a 4 digit ser. number with no prefix letter and it had the same 4 numbers on the stock,I had no luck at all finding out why it had the 4 numbers and no prefix letter.

I am thinking if it has a 4 digit serial number and no letter it is older that the 1950's and the records for those rifles and serial numbers are not good. Post some pictures and there will be people on here than can tell you what you have and about when it was made. Pictures are 99% of finding out what you want to know.

I will try to post the a pic of the serial number and of the model type. I did have the rifle chrome plated but the serial number has always been the same four digit number. Cannot find anything to give a definite answer to what year it was made. Will post the pics once I figure out how to do that. Also when the stock is removed the number 780 is stamped on the side of the tang....not sure what that number means or indicates. Thanks everybody for the help but the mystery is still unsolved. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg
