Newbe looking for info on 35 Remington
 
Howdy,

My name is Al and my stepfather started me out in 1966 with a what I believe is a 35 Remington. Everyone said it was too much gun for a youngster and it would make me gun shy. I used the rifle for a couple of years and then move out and started using a Model 94.

I now own that 35 Remington and would like to find out more about it. It has on the barrel the following information:

The Marlin Firearms Co. Est 1870
New Haven, Conn Model 336SC Cal 35 REM

Under the lever there is a H4269.

It appears to have seven (7) grooves in the barrel.

I would love to find out more about this rifle. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who might have information on this rifle.

Thanks,

Al

Marlin stopped making the 35 remington model so I would take care of it, see alot of hunters with them here and are real popular. you can still find the ammo easy

I am glad to hear your Indian name is Runs with Beer instead of Falls with Beer. :)

I have found it is a 1951 Model. The big questions are:

1. Why the 35 REM if it is a Marlin?
2. What is the significance of the SC after the Model? I see a lot of references to "C" but not the "SC".

My Indian name would be "Gets to Shoot People".:rolleyes:

35 Rem is the ammo type, Marlin is who made the rifle. A lot of ammunition has been created by Remington, so it isn't uncommon to see Rem or Remington after the caliber. Even the versatile 5.56x45 that is used in most NATO rifles, was known originally as .223 Rem.

Matt,

Thanks for the info. I had always heard the gun called a 35 Remington. So I naturally went with that name. Interesting that Marlin would not make the ammo for it's own guns.

Thanks,

Al

Ford and Chevy don't make gas for their vehicles.

Marlin still makes this great gun. This is from their web site:

Model 336C
Known for its rugged styling, pinpoint accuracy, and incredible dependability, this popular pistol grip carbine has a flat, solid top receiver and hammer block safety. The 336C has become one of the most popular rifles in North America. Its genuine American black walnut stock is enhanced with fine cut checkering. In addition to 30/30 Win., the 336C is also available in 35 Rem., a cartridge favored by many hunters because of its reputation as a hard-hitting brush-buster.

.35 Remington
 
The .35 Remington has long held the reputation as a superb "woods" cartridge and has been used in just about every type of firearm including single-shot pistols. Reload data is available everywhere including downloads using .357" handgun bullets for plinking. (The bore size for the .35 Remington is .358".) With the exception of some new polymer tip bullets, pointed bullets can't be used in the lever action, (unless they are loaded 1+1...1 in the chamber and 1 in the mag tube), but excellent soft point and flat nose bullets are available. The 200gr round nose bullet is probably the most available factory load.

I think that's why the .35 Remington is a slightly better killer. The heavy bullets do their job!
