My 336 My 336W (circa 2014) is my personal favorite. It has those quirks that make it even more perfect. The famous stock gap (1/16") is there and it is the laminate wood. The checkering is wearing a bit. and... It has put 3 hogs on the table and counting. The thing is a machine and simply works and works. I gave her a nice leather sling that provides perfect lock up when hastily drawing up on a hog in the Florida brush. I'm looking forward to some more bacon for the freezer next month. While I do have a few nice looking 1970 ad 1980 336s. This late model is my first and favorite.
