FWIW, you do not have a 1956 Marlin 336-RC (pistol grip) , you have a 1957 Marlin 336-T.

The Model 336-T was made from 1954 through 1983, in .30-30 Win & .35 Rem; or .44 Mag ( 1965-67 only) iwith 18-1/2" bbl (1983 only) or 20" bbl & saddle ring ( 1965-1971).

There was also a Model 336-DT (Deluxe Texan 1962-63) with the stock carved with a longhorn & the state of Texas in it.

FWIW, in 1957 - the DOM of the gun in the OP by serial number - the only straight-grip/round lever CF made by Marlin was the M336T (Texan).

The other, similar, models all were not made in 1957..................................

The straight stocked 336s were marketed and cataloged as Texans, but stamped "RC". They are "Regular Carbine" models, 2 barrel bands, 20 inch barrel. My 1964 Texan is identical to a pistol gripped 336, except for the stock and lever; sights, etc are no different.

I really like the older Marlin 336s, pre-safety and uncheckered slim stocks!

Here are my 1971 336 C and 1964 336 RC.
