I own the gun stated in the subject and was wondering if anybody knew the value? The gun is drilled and tapped for a scope. The stock isn't in bad shape but the blue in isn't like new. I'm just shopping around the idea of getting rid of the gun. Thanks for any help.

The Marlin 336 doesn't hold an extremely high value. A few factors will either bump it up or down from the $500 mark.

You got factors like RC or SC? The SC model is more desire able than the RC

Being that it isn't a scarce caliber like 44mag, 375win, or other short ran oddballs, the value bump for being a rare chamber is null.

Another factor is standard rifling or microgroove. I would say your rifle is standard rifling, which is more desirable IMHO.

Finally, condition. Being yours is a used rifle with signs of wear, it varies. Worn bluing is better off than pitting. Wood is better off nicked/scratched than chipped. Finnish is better dull than missing.

Next is hardware, Scope? Mounts?

I would, without looking at your rifle say its value lies in the realm of around $450. Moving up to around $550 if a good quality scope is mounted similar to a vintage Redfield or fixed Leopold.

Just my .02

I paid $200 for a pretty nice SC in 35 Rem. about 12 years ago at a local shop. Mine was not D/T'd, think it was made in '51?

Now and then I see one for sale, but $300 to $400 seems to be about the norm, depending on condition. Not sure if it adds anything to value if the rifle wasn't originally D/T'd and someone had it done?

His was d&t by a smithy, not factory. Its a bump down in value, but not low enough to mention. The factory didn't start Drilling and Tapping until around '54-'55ish (not a Marlin expert or collector).

Standard RC Used condition 336 in 30-30 net around $325-$395 depending on condition. I based my value on that fact alone. One of the local gun shops around me have a 1949 M336SC in 32ws unmolested in near mint condition and is asking $595. Which in my opinion is a bit over valued.

Bought mine for two reasons: A Potter uncle had one in 32 Spl. and I always liked it.

The one I found hadn't been molested, so I "saved" it. Figured it had made it that long without any extry holes, why not give it a safe haven?



Still amazes me a bit, how accurate that stubby little devil is.

You'd be amazed at the price a pre-Remlin will fetch on a certain Marlin owners site. Add $100-$200 to your prices. We're lucky here in Pa, a real Marlin can still be found at a semi-reasonable price, if you do some searching. Other states....not so much.

It is the sc model. I'm also pretty sure it's standard grooved too. There are no chips in the wood and I can't find any pitting. I would probably get rid of it for $300. Once I get back home Friday I could put pictures up if anybody is interested in seeing it.

I'll buy it at that price. I'm going to pm you. We both live in Beaver Co. So the transaction will be smooth and in person.
