Default 336 cs

I am considering a 1980's version in 30/30. I was wondering if there is anything "Different" about the CS model or anything unusual. I assume they would all be in the same price range?? Thanks in advance, Al

The older models had only the hammer as a safety. The CS model has a cross bolt safety that blocks the firing pin. Some folk get real hung up about not having that cross bolt safety but I have Marlins that are both ways and I don't see it as being a problem.....I just leave it off safe and ignore it. The hammer is suffice for me!

The quality of the 1980s version that you are looking at is as good as any of the JM stamped guns!

What he said, I have a number of marlin levers some with the cross bold safety some without but they both have the half c--k feature which has worked fine for years. I think for the most part the letter designations are more about finish ie. walnut versus cheaper woods, bluing vs mat finish thing like that.

When I sold my Marlin collection like has been said they wonted the CS safety but I really see no real difference in the guns I prefer the half **** for the safety easier to use I just picked up a 30/30 C S and it is ok. for me no big deal either way.

You can remove the stock and lock the safety button in the fire position with nothing more than an little allen wrench. Not a big deal. They are fugly and do not belong on a lever gun, but easy to deactivate if you choose to do that.

I never knew that, thanks chuckduster. That red cross bolt does look ugly and I always just used the half hammer feature anyway.

I just had a 65 yr old thought. As a kid still smarting who had just shot his bb gun with the lever hanging down and had it slam up on his fingers I always thought how much a real gun must hurt if you did that. I didn't know how they worked then.

I lock the little setscrew (normally has yellow paint/thread locker on it). I have seen where others put the right sized little O-RING on the safety button around the spot that has the red OMG IT"S READY TO FIRE paint also.....you have options.
