I'm in with a Revelation 200 from Western Auto I just inheritted. I thought I was going to be forever shunned to the Winny 94 club until my grandmother called me over to come get it. Just checked, it's a 1965 date of manufacture.

Can't imagine a better looking rifle, much better condition than my '63.

Can anyone explain to me just what is a RC Marauder vs a Texan in the Marlin 336 line up? Seems they are both straight grip types & otherwise the same in outward appearances.

The marauder was made from 1962-1964 they were 3,828 made in 30/30 and 2,028 made in 35. rem. The marauders have a 16.25" barrel. Thats about all I can tell you about the marauder, I dont know much about the texans.

I just picked up a 336 yesterday. My first lever gun, and I have a feeling it won't be the last. (I haven't broken this news to my wife yet.) Haven't had a chance to take it out yet, but so far it points great, the action is pretty smooth, and I can't believe how easy it is to break down to clean. Can't wait to get it to the range.

Looks like the wedge to elevate the rear sight is missing or don't show in the picture.
As for peep sights I prefer the tang sight, I suppose because I have always had good results with them.

Yeah the rear sight elevator is missing unfortunately. I'm planning to put some Skinner sights on it. Anybody have one for sale?

That's a good looking Texan! I bought this 35 Rem made in '65 today. Couldn't resist.

RC stands for Regular Carbine, the predecessor of the current C model. There was a CS model (S for safety button), but the S was dropped to just C.

A = full length rifle

Great history lesson. Thanks.

Anybody know the story of the A,
as in 336A (mine)?

Added by edit:

Quote:
A = full length rifle
So, my question is, how does that differ from C,
since they're the same length, at least now?

The older 336A had A 24" barrel. The newer 336 A has A 20" barrel with A forearm cap and A barrel Band. And (I think) Birch stock.

Nem. you and I both have the A type 336. I have not been here in a looooooooooooong time, but I am back.

I took a 180# 10 point this year @ 70 yards with mine. The first day of hunting I used my rem 700 in .270 and droped a buck that later got up and ran off never to be seen again............ so the next day of hunting I went back to "old reliable" 336 and the one I shot that day only ran about 40 yards. I stuck with the basic core-lock ammo and it worked like a charm!!!

One other funny story or depressing one if you think about it......I stopped by a local gun shop to caress some future purchases today and when I told the sales guy that I heard that Marlin was producing the 336Y again and I asked him if they had one. He said sure and proceded to hand me a 336W??????? I corrected him and he looked at me like I was an idiot and that even though this did have a W on it the rifle was still a youth model????????

I handed it back to him and left.....NEVER to return........

I'll buy my firearms from another local contact.......

Went and checked out a local fishing store yesterday with a coworker. I didn't realize the sheer volume of hunting gear/ guns they'd have, or i'da been in there a lot earlier.

While he was off looking at lures, I spent some time looking at a couple of 336's, some with scope, some without. What's the going rate on these on the used market? These were unfancy, character-having, been-hauled-through-the-woods deer rifles.

I was thinking "hm. Not bad?" at the $250-300 price, but I wonder if that might have been a little high?
