I found this one today that came from an estate sale, looks barely used. Two or three character marks in the wood but the metal looks perfect. She came with a no-name cheap scope so I figured for the first time out I'd mount my Swarovski 4-12x50 just for fun. A $1000 scope on a $450 gun, lol.

It's got a JM marked barrel but with a 91 serial number I think that says it was made in 2009, on the cusp of Remington taking them over. It's got the micro groove barrel.

Well, here's hoping I didn't just blow $450, if she shoots as nice as she looks I'll be thrilled.

It's brand new from what I can tell. Nice.

Nice get :)
I recently picked up an older 336 in like new condition. It came with Tasco World-Class 4x scope which I ditched that right away. Its a very nice shooter and rock solid, but I didn't care much for the irons, so after a couple days of searching all the options available I finally decided on a Weaver Classic V3 1-3x scope.

good find. Yours was made the same year as mine. Mine is extremely accurate and well-made. It is a real Marlin. Remington did not start moving manufacturing away from New Haven until summer of 2011.
