    marlin 336 what?

    There are many variations of marlin 336 with a range of values. For an exact answer you need more info. Is it a 336A or a 336Y or any model in between?

    The 35 remington looks about the same as the 30-30 on paper as far as energy, but it makes a bigger hole with more penetration. Ammo is harder to find in stores, but I see it around enough. Recoil is about the same as a 30-30, a mild push. The marlin lever is a fine firearm. You shouldn't be dissapointed

    The 336 line up in used guns are all in a general price range, they are not high collector value guns period. As said $300 to $350 if its 80 to 85%. Also note a gun is only worth what someone will pay for it. Some try to get retail for them an they sit forever, those that sell are in real world gun prices.

    If I remember right that serial number was made in about 1951. there can be many things that can effect the reasonable price for any gun. the 300 to 350 is most likely about right. Those that early were not drilled and tapped for scope mounting(though this was done to many). they were tapped for receiver sights.

    Yep 51 sounds right they were an are very very tuff guns the real workin mans rifle back then, but are still a blast to shoot today. Long live the 336 an all leverguns

    It hasn't been drilled or tapped in any way,just has the buckhorn sights on the barrel.

    That increases the value by anywheres from $10-$75 depending on if the sights are all original

    i'm pretty sure they are all original,they look all weird and old style like the ones on my 1945 Win 94.

    The wood on older Marlins is generally superior to the newer stuff. Why the 35 Rem never got the love or fame of the 30-30 is a mystery to many.

    I w like to think Elmer Keith w agree w the larger SD of the 35 Rem which leaves a
    20 percent larger wound channel prior to expansion.

    People often say there is nothing the 35 can do that the 30-30 can't which is true but there is also nothing the 30-30 can do that the 35 can't do w more authority. Large chunks of lead can make a real impression on large game.

    However, ammo availability is an issue and even the local shops will have 30-30 ammo.

    For the most part,both do the same thing,however I think i'd want that .35 at the moment a grizzly charged me.

    A gent took a Marlin 35 and cut the barrel down to 16" and smoothed the action some. He said it was a Hog Hammer. If I ever ran into a 300 lb bruin, I w appreciate the extra punch.

    FYI : I own both.
