    Marlin didn't start producing the 336 until 1948. Prior to that would have been the model 36 which had the slab sided bolt like a model 1894.

    This is courtesy of -- Marlin firearms collectors association --


    Marlin Year of Manufacture

    Marlin year of manufacture maybe determined from the following list of letter/numeral prefixs to the serial number; this coding only applies to serialized rifles:

    1946-C
    1947-D
    1948-E
    1949-F
    1950-G
    1951-H
    1952-J
    1953-K
    1954-L
    1955-M
    1956-N
    1957-P
    1958-R
    1959-S
    1960 (August)-1961-U
    1961 (August)-1962-V
    1963-W
    1964-Y,-Z
    1965-AA
    1966-AB
    1967-AC
    1968-AD, -68
    1969-69
    1970-70
    1971-71
    1972-72

    Starting in 1973, the year of manufacture maybe determined by subtracting the first two digits of the serial number from 100:
    Example: SN 2512345 would have been made in 1975 [100 - 25 = 75] and SN 94365295 would have been made in 2006 [ 100 - 94 = 06 (2006) ].

    For Marlin Rimfire Rifles [non-serialized]:

    From 1962 thru 1968 Marlins rimfire rifles (other than the 39 series lever actions) used a two letter date code that was stamped on the barrel. This date code is different than the one already listed, as Marlin rimfire rifles (other than the model 39 series) did not have a serial numbers until required to by Law after 1968. The first letter of the date code represented the month of manufacture while the second letter indicated the year. This date code was usually stamped on the left side of the barrel just in front of the receiver. The first letter of the date code is as follows:

    A = Jan.
    B = Feb.
    C = Mar.
    D = Apr.
    E = May
    F = June
    G = July
    H = Aug.
    I = Sep.
    J = Oct.
    K = Nov.
    L = Dec.

    The second letter of the date code is as follows:

    F = 1962
    G = 1963
    H = 1964
    I = 1965
    J = 1966
    K = 1967
    L = 1968

    So a date code of "JK" would indicate that rifle was made in October of 1967


    Hope that helps

    Less sporting carbines were made then other models yes, but they are not 'rare' by any means. The wear looks to be about average for the mfg date....worth closer to $350-400.
