My BIL Rick has a model 36 in .32 Winchester special serial # D2214X. I've found sites to date 336, and early Marlins, but nothing for the 36. Any help would be appreciated.

Yeah....

I dated a model once. Name was Marilyn, though - not Marlin.

She was a 36-24-36.

When it got right down to it, I just wasn't as taken with her as she was.

:cool:

He let me put a few rounds through it. I'm not a big fan of aperture sights, but with the Williams on it the most apt description I can come up with is, "Laser beam o' deer death."
