    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

    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!

    The SC in the model 336SC stands for sporting carbine.

    .35 Rem

    That Marling 336C was a very popular rifle and the .35 Rem a popular caliber here in Pennsylvania. Great brush gun with good accuracy and knockdown power. A big advantage of the Marlin over the Winchester 94 was the Marlin ejected from the side of the receiver instead of out the top. This allowed a lower scope mounting. It was made in a number of calibers from 30-30 up to the .35 Rem. A stronger version was designed for the Marlin .444.

    The 35 Remington is a great cartridge. I have owned 3 different .35's. The Marlin 336, Remington 141 pump, and the Remington 81 auto. Winchester even chambered the Model 70 in .35 Rem. briefly. It has been around a long time, I think it was introduced in 1906. Hornady has breathed new life into the cartridge by developing the Leverevolution line of ammo with the soft tipped pointed bullets that are safe for tubular magazines. If you compare the .35 Remington to all the other .35's, such as the .358 Winchester, .35 Whelen, and .350 Rem. Mag., I bet the old Remington round still out sells them.

    I think remington developed a few cartridges to go with their model 8 autoloader. I think there was a .25, 30 and a 35cal rimless cartridges. They had the case capacity roughly the same as the 30-30. The former two are now virtually extinct while the 35 remingtom developed a loyal following being chambered in rifles such as your marlin. It is also a popular round in the Thompson contender. If you want a cartidge with the marlin logo (ignoring the newest .308 marlin) you can still get a 444 marlin in roughly the same format. This caliber truley is not a yougster's first deer rifle.:rolleyes:

    .35 Rem.

    I have a Remington Model 7600 in .35 Remington. It is set up as a woods gun. I love it. It is clip fed so I can shoot pointed bullets. The gun is light, accurate, hits hard and has mild recoil. Can't ask for anything more in a 100 year old cartridge in a modern gun.:confused:

    this may be too late for you but just found this thread. the marlin model 336 c is the standard 20" barreled carbine with a pistol grip stock. the model 336 sc stands for sporting carbine which is identical to the c model except the magazine tube has been shortened and instead of going all the way to the end of the barrel as the c model does it stops several inches short of the end of the barrel, hope this helps.
