Default Marlin 22 stamped wrong

I am trying to find out some info on a Marlin Bolt action .22. This gun was my grandfathers and I believe it was probably made in the 50's or 60's. It is a bolt action gun with a tube feed magazine. On the barrel it is stamped with "MODEL 36-RC-30-30 CAL.".

I cannot find any information on this gun. I have called Marlin and they knew nothing.

I am just curious how many of these got stamped wrong and what it might be worth.

Thanks,

Thanks,
The answer would be, very few. How it ended up on the streets is a mystery and it could be a collectors item. The fact it's stamped on top of the barrel is odd as well, most I've seen are stamped on the sides, but they may have put the stamp across the top on some of the earlier rifles or certain models. The stamp is for their straight grip lever action in 30-30, the pistol grip versions were the 336.

No idea what it might be worth, if you find the right buyer.

Not off hand, resembles a 881/981 (bolt-action, tube mag) but that my be too late of a model to be yours. Let me do some digging and see if we can match it up to something.

Is there a serial number on it anywhere? It would help narrow it down a bit if we knew what year it was built. I just need the first 2-4 digits if it has a serial number.

From what I can see from the pics it appears to be the 81-DL manufactured after WWII. The 81DL was produced before and after WWII, but not during the war. It was an updated version of the 81B, the 81DL used the plastic trigger guard and the stock appears to be one built after the war. Before WWII they used a beaver-tail style fore end on the stock

Some parts are still available for this rifle at Numrich and may be found on e-Bay or GunBorker.

Thanks for your help. There is no serial number on it that I can find.

I think the serial numbers started in the late 60's so yours is will be earlier than that, late 40's to mid 60's. Nice to see these still around and shooting, I have a 336C lever action in 30-30 from 1967 and it still shoots as good as any new rifle.

If you want some more information, Rimfire Central has plenty of tips, tricks, etc. to keep these up and running and may be able to narrow down you year of manufacture a little better. They tend to get a lot more traffic on these rimfire rifles.

Look to see if the barrel has been re-lined...it may well have been a 30-30 modded to replace a damaged one...
folks did some weird things in the 50's...just because they could
