    I have one I bought off of a guy who used it to wound a bear (not the gun or bullets fault, poor shot placement) which I later killed. Payed $100 bucks, haven't shot it too much, I should.....

    Very nice rifle

    My first CF rifle was a Marlin 336T in 35 Rem. Sold it to pay for a 308 Norma Magnum. Should have kept the 35 but the size of a moose intimidated me.

    55,

    Very nice Rifle! You will have to check out the Serial Numbers to see when it was made. The Marlin 336 Models began production in 1948. And yes they were tapped and drilled for a Scope.
    Enjoy!

    Maybe that is why I am so fond of the 336, as I too was made in 1948!!!:D

    Weren't the older Marlin's barrels done with what's called Ballard bores, or something where they used different size cutters to create the rifling. Not today's rifling called Micro-groove.

    Please be careful, the .35 kicks! That scope is pretty far back and I’d hate to find out you ended up in the emergency room for stitches. Nice gun! And no, the original waffle tops were not drilled and tapped but it’s now rare to find an “unmolested” waffle top. Enjoy that fine old classic!

    Roger that. It looks like a 'small' person must have used it. I place my scopes as far forward and possible on all my 336's. :)

    Thanks for the concern, I have a fused neck so my scopes have to be mounted differently than others.. I mount them where I get full view of the scope, and I have got kissed a time or two with a scope.. Can't stand to pull up a Rifle and only see a dime sized spot through the scope.. If I get whacked by it I,ll post pics..lol

    Ahhhh, got it. In case you don’t know, or for folks that don’t, one thing that works for folks like you is to place the rifle higher on sandbags or rest, and sit a lot more upright at the bench. It also works well when sighting in heavy recoiling guns. Very nice rifle you got there!

    IMHO one should shoot upright off the bench. As if more replicates offhand form.
    But then I shoot most of my deer offhand.

    Maybe not as critical w fast stuff but slug guns w big recoil and slower bullets were picky.

    35 rem is a hammer on deer, and not on the hunter.

    No crack, just a boom.

    IMHO a gentleman's rifle.

    Just a pleasant companion to take to the woods.

    I run a 760 made in '63.
