336 RC info and year of make verification..help!


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I recently inherited a Marlin 336 RC from my grandfather and I would like to know more them. Are they the same thing as the modern version 336, and are they as good quality wise as the newer guns. Also I would love to know what year the gun was made in if any of y'all could help me with that I would appreciate it. the serial number is-- E 14XXX. Thanks

It's best to replace the last 2-3 digits of any serial numbers you post with XXX. There are people who are not your friends who would like to know it. I'll Fix your serial number.

Thank you Jack, I did not know that about the serial numbers and I very much appreciate you sharing that with me and fixing it. Wow!! I had no idea the gun was that old. My grandfather never took the gun hunting, and he only fired it on a few occaisions from what I understand. He instead chose to hunt with his 30-40 Krag bolt action with the magazine that folds out to the side. I have inherited it as well. Any ideas as to the value of my 336 RC? Do you think it would be safe to hunt with it and use it assuming it does not have any kind of collectible value. In other words is it built as well as todays Marlin 336s??

Value depends on condition and location, so I'll toss in a wild guess and say $300. Calibre counts too, as most are .30-30s, but they're still making .35 Remingtons and there were .32 Specials and a couple of others. It's safe if it's in good mechanical condition. It's easy to pull the bolt for barrel cleaning.

Here's some useful links.

That year of manufacture is 1948, it appears to have been produced the first year that the 336 model was rolled out.

If you want a better idea on what it may be worth to a collector, scour the web for some 336 afficianados/collectors after closely looking over condition for parts wear, blue wear and wooden/stock wear - then consider emailing several photos from different angles after someone agrees to give you some advice on this.

I'm constantly consulted about a different item and understand something about the process of determining potential value, etc.

John

I could also use some help with one I just picked up. It is a 336CS and the first two digits of the serial number written on the receipt are 00. Can't pick up the rifle until the 18th so I have to go by what is on the receipt. Seems like most other Marlin serials start with a letter. Strange?

I think it was made in 2000. After they ran out of letters at AD, they used a system where the first two digits subtracted from 2000 was the year. So 2000 - 16 = 1984. While the collector's site only works to 1990, I think they carried on to 2000. The old Marlin Talk site had all of this sorted out, but I didn't save it.

Bye

2000 is correct. The whole story is here. Turn Shockwave on to read it.

DiverDown,

Is your rifle a straight grip? You just have to love those old RCs'! did you say which caliber you have?

I just picked up a Marling 30-30 336 RC.
The serial number reads E 7XXX.
I am lost as to what this may mean, while the rufle is in good to fair shape I am curious as to production year and if 150.00 was a good price.

E = 1948, as above. $150 is a good price if it's a shooter.

Great site . I was just given a Marlin 336RC in .35 REM by a relative and cleaned it up a bit .. it was covered in light rust but with a little rubbing it revieled it's orginal blue once again.. Reminds me of an old west gun..

The serial number is J 48XXX No clue how old it is but I can't wait to get her out and run some rounds through it..

Edit .. What is the difference between straight grip and other? And what is mine?

Your rifle has what is called a pistol grip stock because of the curve.

This page on Marlin's website shows a straight grip stock.

Marlin 336 RC

I was given a 336 RC by my father-in-law right before his death. Our area has had a lot of break-ins with gun thefts so I want to keep the information about the rifle in a safe location. However, I can't seem to find the serial number unless it is the four digit number under the lever PXXX?

Is that the serial number? Any idea of the year of manufacture? Any idea of the value?

Thanks,

Joe
