Today I picked up a marlin 336 standard mod. I guess has the cross bolt safety 30-30 cal came with weaver see through rings and a Simmons 3x9x40 scope and leather padded sling has been hunted so I would say about an 8 out of 10 will clean up good has a little very small rust on the blueing not bad 00 wool and some number 9 should clean up so when was the cross bolt safety no longer produced? I needed this thing like a hole in the head but could not pass up. does need the pistol grip cap as it is missing anyone got a spare? I went on the net and found that this rifle was made in years 1958-1959 if that is correct that makes it 60 years old almost an antique. The fellow I got it from said he had it for 25 years and it was used when he bought it After a good cleaning of the SN and giving the info. to Bikerbean turns out it was really made in 1985 so that makes it only 34 years old. need to get it cleaned up and polished and may give it a workout at the range if the weather permits.
