Default New to me Marlin 336

Picked up a used Marlin 336(stole it really) in .35 Remington.

Date code puts it as manufactured between August 1960 & August 1961. JM stamped and obviously no crossbolt safety.

Gun had a Bushnell Banner 4X scope on it in a Weaver Pivot base/rings setup which thrilled me. A little freckling on the back side of the receiver which cleaned up pretty good.

I got rid of the scope and had a pristine Denver Redfield 4X scope with a post/crosshair reticle and mounted that into the Weaver Pivot Mount setup after I cleaned the gun all up.

Bore is excellent too, doesn't look like it was shot much, probably stored in a closet for many years till it came to the gunshop.

One of the all time classic rifle/cartridge combos for woods hunting deer/black bear. If you can't fill your freezer with that you can't fill it with anything!

Very nice ! The ultimate NE whitetail and black bear killer. Try out the Hornady Leverevolution ammo to kick it up a notch.
