I had a bit of buyers remorse beacuse I know they stoped making the model 70 but I think this will be a fun gun.

How would I go about finnishing the barrel in nickle as well?

Chambered in 30/30 Win, the 336 features a 20” barrel with a semi-buckhorn folding rear sight and ramp front sight with a brass bead and Wide-Scan hood.

Deluxe Lever-Action Rifle Features Marlin 1894 and 336 Deluxe lever-action rifles can be ordered through direct Marlin Firearms dealers and Marlin Custom Shop dealers until September 30, 2009.1969-1972 only the first two numerals of the Serial# indicate actual year (69, 70, 71, 72) of production...1973-2000 this is where someone would subtract the first two digits (which range from 27 to 00) from 2000 to get year of production... the first two digits (99, 98, 97 and so on) subtracted from 100 will give the 20xx date of manufacture...The sides, trigger, hammer, lever, tube, and screws are all ( I believe ) nickel. There will soon be a few less pigs running around in my neck of the woods. And they didn't build any stainless 336's in 1953, or nickle plated either. [code][/code Zndy; The very first post in the "General Gun Questions and Answers" on this site will tell you the date of manufacture of your Marlin. As all Marlins made after 1973, you subtract the first two digits from 100 to determine the year of manufacture. 100 - 21 = 79 or 1979)I hate a Marlin model 336 with a gold trigger and a serial number stamper "71 135158".The owner of the gun shop I think said that the guy had it in his boat. It also has a gap between the butt plate and the wood. Sounds like your Marlin was modified.[/quote] my marlin isnt stainless nor nickel plated. There is a space between the 71 and the rest of the serial numbers.What year and does the remaining numbers mean anything?
