My local gun dealer and friend has a Marlin 336, great shape, no scope, ect... bare... in 35 Remington for sale, used in his inventory. He can work with me on the price, because hes only makeing about 20.00 dollars as it stands... is $350.00 good? I dont konw what Id do with it... like I need another gun to reload for... but it intrigues me. What do you guys think? Older, no cross bolt safety.

I dunno my friend.. I have a 336a? Its in 30-30.. only worth about $200 if im lucky.. if your heart is set and you want a 35 rem whos to tell you whats to much? Aside from that if you got 350+/- burning a hole in your pocket.. go for it..

From my knowledge its not worth it..

$350 sounds a bit high to me. I saw that Wal-Mart was selling them a while back, and I believe the price was around $350. My friend has one, which is broken, I'll say. The workmanship and quality seems to be fine, although brand new, it's probably worth around that price. Personally, the round is more interesting than the rifle.

For what it is worth - the BB of Gun Values list the 'bare bones' 336A at $325 in 100 percent condition. But, there are a million (not quite - but close) 336 models. There is a 336A/336AS, 336W, 336CC, 336Y and then they get into the carbines and stainless models and there are about six or seven of them. As I look over the prices a 100 percent rifle goes from $325 to about $750.

Dick's Sporting Goods current ad shows a Marlin 30-30 w/scope new for $349.

I'd say that dealer price was way high.

You can buy a new one for 400 so 350 is high. I'd say a good one in .30-30 about 250 and 50 more for a .35 because they are less common. I'd tell you dealer you can get a new one for 400 and so can't go over 300 for his, bet he takes it. Unless of course he has way too much in it, which would be the case if he is making $20 at 350. But I don't think any dealer gives 330 for a used 336.
