Hi, A local shop has a Model 336 30/30 for sale and serial number indicates it to be a 1950 model. It is in very very good condition with no obvious flaws, I haven't shot it. He wants $300. DEAL OR NO DEAL???
Help please, you opinion is important to this novice Marlin lover. Thanks John

    There are many variants of the 336. If it is from 1950, it is a 336 Carbine, regular. Range from $100-$400 depending on condition. If is a great gun, $300 is a good price.

    A 1950 model Marlin 336, in good shape, would be a fine rifle. If you shoot cast bullets, its cut rifling instead of the later-introduced Micro_groove rifling will do a better job with the softer lead bullets. They were honest and well-made guns. Also available back then were 24" barreled 336A models. IF it were one of these, you can, like the newer ones recently introduced, take advantage of the Hornady LeveRevolution ammo for increased velocity and down-range performance. These 24" bbl. 336A's and ADL's sell for a premium.

    Thanks for the info. This rifle is 20" and really 'looks' great. I am going to shoot it tomorrow. Thanks again.

    If it's in Very Good + condition - you have yourself a very good deal.
    We get a lot of 336s and in good minus condition we can sell them at 325 bucks. Very well made and very good shooting pieces in that era. Go for it.
