Here's a long involved story for you. My dad had a Glenfield 30A. That's essentially a Marlin 336W sold in Sears stores back in the day. Factory mounted scope, thumb-extension on the hammer. It is a beautiful gun.

I inherited when he passed away a few years ago. I'd trade the rifle for my Dad any day of the week but it looks like that isn't going to happen so I'm making do. While I've been working on accumulating and trading the various family firearms that have been left in closets and storage that old Marlin is a keeper.

I never fired a 30-30 before and took it to the range. Shoots high and to the left and I forgot to bring a screw driver so I couldn't zero the scope. Once I got the hang of it though, it was a great gun to shoot. Accurate and kicks like a mule. On that particular day I was surrounded by AR-15's and AK's, but I had a certain feeling of pride in my gun. Yeah, she was an older gal and maybe not wearing the most fashionable accessories, but she looked damn good.

They are great rifles! Many-MANY deer have been taken wit ha 336. That kind of speaks for their quality I think.

I have the previous version to your 336, I have a Model 36. It had the sliding bolt design which was changed in the 336 version.
Mine is a early 1945 version made when civilian manufacturing was being ramped up again post war. They are very fine weapons and a blast to shoot but as others have said, they can have a punishing kick to them.

Here is mine:

I wear one of these if I'm going to shoot more than 5 rounds through my 336. If I don't my shoulder will ache for two weeks.

Is that the original finish?

One of my favorite scoped with a Monarch 2x8, Wild West trigger and loop..I looked at the older waffle tops but with my eyes I need a scope..mines a remlin but I got lucky I guess, nice bluing, stock and for the money I'm not worried about beating the heck out of it in the brush..very accurate with plain Federal Blue Box 150gr RN's for 15 bucks at Walmart..I like it better then my Model 94, easier to clean and don't like the sights on either..if my eyes were better I'd get a peep sight...I don't know what all the fuss is about kick..they're not bad at all, my .243 and 25-06 kick more...
