Found Marlin 336 in 35 Rem


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Well, I have had the hots for a Marlin 336 in 35 Rem down at the pawn shop for several weeks. The owner didn't have it displayed because there was a crack in the rear stock and some glue where some idiot apparently tried to glue a shoulder pad in place. She had said she wanted a gunsmith to redo the stock...but there it sat for three weeks.
So today I asked the owner if I could take it home and try the stock redo. She agreed and I brought it home. My wife saw the black walnut wood and said she would do the stock redo....took her about 1 1/2 hours and it is looking great. Gotta dry overnight and then she can do the finishing touches.
The gun has an "AC" serial number which is supposed to mean it was made in 1967. When I got it home, I dropped the lever and pulled the bolt to clean it and check the barrel...barrel is in superb condition....it looks hardly used.
It came with a scope rail and Leupold rings so I think I'll put a Pine Ridge 2-7 x 35 scope on it tomorrow and see if it shoots. I got a box of Winchester Super-X 200 gr Power Point for the test. Had to pay $35 at a local hardward store but after all ya gotta have ammo to do a test. Got home and checked Cheaper than Dirt on line and they have Hornady Leveraction 200 gr plastic tips for $22 a box.
If I decide to keep this toy, I'll probably get RCBS dies...I've got plenty of .357 bullets so I'll just have to get some brass. Turned out to be a great day!

Great find! The 336 in .35 is a great rifle for ranges to 200 yards, scoped. I would try the LE stuff as I found it to be quite accurate in my only .35 (a 760, actually). Good luck at the range!

Here's another place to get some reasonably priced rounds for it:

The Remington 200grn RN Core-Loct is generally considered as "THE" bullet for the .35 Remington, my 336A will put them just over MOA and they typically give one shot DRT results, I recommend them!, in hand loads ofcourse.

Looks like you got a keeper!!! And, you're not the first guy to try the LE ammunition and find it would be very difficult to duplicate it's accuracy either.
