Default My first 1975 Marlin 336 30/30 (Please post yours)

I just got it Monday and knew the hammer and sights were not stock (the original hardware was included).

I took it to the range today and really like it. It fires great and the rifle is so easy to field strip and clean from the breech. A+

The Marlin 336 replaced the Model 36.

Very nice rifle!
I think in 1983 Marlin began producing their lever actions with a cross bolt safety. So this is especially nice being pre 1983.

Very Nice!!! Don't know a lot about Marlins, but I thought they all had a black and white bullseye in the stock, but obviously they don't.

Nice rifle. I had one chambered in 35 Rem. in tghge mid 70's. Brand new it was $129.99 + tax. It had the Marlin Eye' in the bottom of the stock. I can't believe how many of those that I've seen where someone drilled it out to install a sling swivel stud!

The 336 in this picture also dates from 1975:

Other than the Savage 99, all the rest are newer.

My first centerfire rifle was a 336. Still hunt with one, i dont think a better woods rifle exists.

Apologies for the pic orientation. I turned that thing every way from Sunday but i could not upload it straight. Senior moment i suppose. Wheres a millennial when you need one?

Approximately how much does it cost to get a pre-1983 in very good shape? Are they like buying a pre-64 Winchester? Thanks.

Not quite as spendy as a Winchester. You should be able to corral a nice Marlin for around 500.00, sometimes much less.

I just recently sold a Glenfield JM Marlin from 1970s NIB for $400. It lasted less than a hour. I prefer 336 over Win 94 but the other day when I shipped the rifle it weighed a shade over 8 lbs. I had to make sheath for original box to ship. So original box with cardboard over it was in the 8+ lbs. point is they weight more than 94 Win. I don’t care, mine has a 16” barrel and I’ve made shots that shut up the anti 30/30 crowd.

I’ve had several over the years. I’ve had them in 35 Rem which is my favorite woods cartridge for deer. My favorite deer gun is a Rem 141 in 35.
My PB on rifle deer was with 35 Rem. Last day, tag filling I laid 9 to rest.

Here's an original 1936 in .30-30.



My nicest 336 has to be this 1958 vintage 336SD in .35 Remindton.

Actually Marlins are still sleepers in some areas. A lot of people have a 30/30 as utility gun in rural areas. Here in Ohio we can’t use bottle neck cartridges or less than 38 cal. Some of these guns are coming out of the woodwork looking to trade into Ohio deer legal gun. Everybody that hunts is not a collector. If you can get to them before some hammer head takes it to a shop you can get a good deal.

That is correct. The reason some don't have one is because people will sometimes replace the bulls eye with a sling std much to the displeasure of Marlin owners like myself. The sling stud should be about 1 inch behind the bulls eye.

I agree. I'd say $400-$550 for a 1970's Marlin rifle in good condition. I'd pay 50%+ more for a nice pre-1964 Winchester in good condition.

I have a 1950 Winchester 94 30/30 in excellent condition. There is not a scratch on it and may be unfired and has it's original box.

Mine handed down to me,a waffle top from around 1955 still all original. Well used and loved but took it out and 50 yards with open sights on a rest no problem for a 6 inch group and at 25 yards I can make a large ragged hole out of a bullsey. My 2017 version with scope makes too easy so it gets out less often.

If you can find a old peep sight for it that will make it easier to shoot. A lot of them had old Redfield or Lyman peeps on them as the holes are already there from the factory to mount them. Some will require a different front sight.

My pics aren't as good but here's my 1955 336RC 30-30. JM marked barrel. Absolutely love this gun! Dinged 12" plates off hand at 200yrds the other day. It gives the shooter so much more satisfaction loading and running a lever gun that autos just can't compete with. Bolts are good as well but there's something about a lever gun. I prefer the Marlin's side eject over the Winchester top eject. Could easily shoot it with iron sights but I like scopes.

I found some 35 Remington for my Marlin 336C.

UPS tracking says it will be here on Saturday. It's college football day so Sunday is my best test day.

Hey Marlin guys,

I just bought my second 1975 Marlin (yes, both numbers start with 25xxxx). It is a great gun and now tested at my Sandy Springs Gun Range. This one has a perfect GA deer scope as it perfectly fired:





The local GA seller also threw in his 30/30 ammo.

Nice rifle. Marlins like Smith and Wessons are addicting and you may end up owning a bunch of them. If you have not already check out another great forum Marlinowners.

Not a 336 but a Model 1893 in 30-30.
A SRC I built up from misc parts.
The wood was from a 1894 I believe. I had the action minus the ring and staple. The other misc parts appeared in my parts bin except for a couple screws that I made.
Luckily I had a correct orig SRC rear sight for it. Those are expensive little items now!
I had a 30-30, 25-36 and a 32-40 SRC bbls,,so I opted for the 30-30 as it has the nice bore. A couple of mag tubes were in with the bbl's.

There's a 14" orig Trapper bbl for the 1893 MArlin in with the bunch of bbls and mag tubes I bought as parts as wel. This one in 32-40cal.
Would be nice just to be able to make up those types of things but w/o all the paperwork and hassle of the NFA process.
I don't even think SBR are allow in the hands of the citizens of this state anyway. No SBR, SBS, No TSMG's and No Sparklers.
20" carbine is short enough.

Wood is refinished as is the mag tube and bbl. The frame is orig with some rust removed gently and the orig colors perked up a bit.
Carbine style butt plate but it's not a Marlin original. I don't think it's from a Winchester either (they don't interchange and the Marlin is very hard to find and $$).
My mystery plate fit fairly close but needed quite a lot of work both metal and wood for a nice final result. That was rust blued as well.
Shoots nice. Just another range toy.
Marlins are great rifles,

My first 336 was an early remlin 336bl ...

But picked this up last year- 336sc waffletop. Sadly it was drilled and tapped on the side with a weaver mount and a j2.5. Still cool though - havenít had a chance to shoot it yet.

Also got myself an early 39a too...

My only Marlin at present is really a Glenfield that Marlin made.
A neighbor had put it away in a damp soft case after hunting season and when he took it out next summer it was covered in surface rust, and the Birch stock had water damage to the finish.

He asked me if I wanted it, so I saw a "project rifle" in the works.
I took most of the rust off with fine steel wool and oil, and sent the barreled action off to Jesse Ocumpaugh in Oregon.
Jesse will rechamber-rebore old .30/30s to .308 Marlin, .356 Winchester, .400 JES (his own wildcat which is a .444 necked down to .40 cal), and .444.
His conversions are excellent. I chose .356 Winchester.

When I got it back, I finished it in Sniper Grey Cerakote and used a deluxe 336 stock I bought from Marlin.
Normally I detest scopes on levers, but I wanted to work up a good handload, and since this lever gun had a bit more range capability than the typical Marlin, I decided to leave the scope on after load testing.
The first load I tried with the Hornady 200 grain FTX bullet was a 3/4 MOA load.
I've always preferred a straight grip/lever Marlin, but the semi pistol grip on this one felt pretty good.

Great job on saving the old Glenfield. That stock looks like you have it fitted better than Remington could do when they were attempting to make Marlin's.

I do know the Marlin forum which has good tech and friendly guys.

My first rifle was a Winchester (my small town didn't offer Marlins). It was a Model 94, and I bought many more over the last few decades. [My first revolver was a S&W.]

Top and bottom are Marlin with scopes. The middle five are Winchester 94 (two are pre-1964):
