    Marlin 336 (1984) I think

    This is my latest purchase. It is a Marlin model 336 made around 1984 (I think). Haven't gone to the range yet maby later today. It has some minor scratches on the stock and I am thinking of re-finishing it. I don't think it is historical or even collectable so I don't think a re-finish will affect the value of the rifle. Any thoughts?

    Now if I can just find some Ammo...

    ...oh, yeah, there's interest in Marlins...but it's Saturday...stuff, sports, and honeydos get in the way...the older Marlins are my favorite...mine was made in 76, it's a fine piece...been shot little...carried/scratched a little...smooth as silk...
    ...I was told that in the 70s you start subtracting first two digits of serial number from 100 to get year of manuf....have read that a few places...

    ...when I stocked up, Rem 150gr. SP was 13+...now I'm seeing 18+ when I see any...times are changin'...start gatherin' ammo and enjoy...I'd check every small/country store/pawn shop I passed for ammo...might bump into some old stock at good prices...

    My first personally owned firearm was the 336, with the Pistol Grip Stock. And it was in the .35Remington Caliber.

    My first firearm was a 336CS 30/30. I bought it in 1985 when I was 15 years old. Killed a few deer with it, really enjoyed shooting it. Sadly, it was one of the guns stolen from my home in '96.

    I don't think it's valuable as a collectible, but in the hands of someone who knows how to use it, it is priceless.

    Definitely not a "collectible" from a value standpoint, but rather a gun that belongs in every shooter's collection. Go ahead and refinish that stock - you're will just be that much nicer than the next guy's.

    FWIW, a week ago I still saw basic .30-30 ammo in a couple of places, like Sportsman's Warehouse and a local gun shop.

    I think it sounds like a perfect candidate for a refinish, no real collectors value and nothing looks better than a polished up lever gun except maybe a polished up bolt gun.

    The 336 rifles are great. I have owned a few and still do. Fun, reliable, and good enough accuracy, not to mention easy on the wallet.

    I have bought and sold several lever action 30-30's down through the years.
    My present 30-30 is the Marlin 336SS, in fact I just decided to get a scope for it yesterday...these mid-sixties eyes convinced me to do so.
    I love my 336 and it will not be sold or traded off...I'll pass it down.
    You have a great all-around brush gun there...enjoy it. I wouldn't worry about a couple of minor scratches as they can easily be 'touched' up.

    My Mini 14 is for inside the house work - easier for my wife to use. But if the feces ever hits the rotating ventilation device, my Marlin 336 is what will be in my hands. I trust the 170 gr .30-30 much more than the 5.56.

    Nice rifle! Shoot it some, before you decide whether to refinish it or not. It's a working gun - a few scratches and dings give it character.

    Would not sell or trade my marlin 30-30 for any thing. In the right hands this rifle can do anything from plinking, hunting, and self defense.

    I'm waiting on my 336 to ship from the seller. Bought it off Gunbroker. I should have bought one years ago. I hope that I like mine as much as you guys like yours.
