My 336A is a rifle with a 24" barrel and a half magazine, don't know what a "W" is.

The 336A "USED" to be the 24" barrel with half tube, but that gun was discontinued years ago.

Why Marlin renamed a new gun with the same name is a good question. The 336C is walnut and the nicer gun. The A and W both have hardwood stocks and the only difference I can tell is that the W has a traditional barrel band. The A has an endcap instead of a barrel band. Some claim the endcap is more accurate than the barrel band.

There's very little practical difference. The W has a barrel band around the fore end, includes sling swivels and a nylon padded sling. The A has sling studs only and no barrel band.
