So I was give all of my uncle's guns to sell, including a Marlin 336 30-30. I noticed the JM version is worth a bit more if its the same one I have in my possession. One recently sold on GB for $1075. Can someone school me on the JM version and do I have this more coveted model?? JM is on the hammer. Guy on the classifieds said this is the Model 336 RC. Slimmer style forearm. Would like to hear opinions on value as well. Its in pretty nice shape.

I can't tell the exact year model of yours, but it is "pre-crossbolt safety" which makes it a bit more desirable, but not 1000 bucks desirable....yet, anyway. If I had to guess, yours is a mid 1970s model, and In my area, it would sell for around 500 bucks plus, if somebody wanted it real bad. I see them listed in private sales for less. Recently I saw one listed for 425, and they would have taken a little less, I'm guessing.
It all comes down to how bad the buyer wants it, just like most things.

I was wrong, the 336RCs were marked that way up to the late 1960s I think, so it might bring a little more, but not a huge amount. The 70s rifles were marked just 336c for the same regular carbines..

I own old Marlins with JM stamp up to new Marlins commonly called Remlins.
The JM's are coveted and will bring more money. Evidently when Remington first bought Marlin, the quality was poor. In my opinion, my "Remlin's" are as good as the JM 336's.

I don't mean to start a fight regarding the good/bad etc. it's just my opinion.

When the first Remington-made Marlins came out, I saw a couple of them on the racks of the Cabela's here in town. On both rifles, the front sights were on "crooked", either the barrels weren't turned in all the way, or the dovetails were cut wrong. Either way, they'd have been unuseable. Also, the wood was very, very "proud" on both examples, and on a couple more in another store, the same proud wood would make them very uncomfortable to carry or use.
In the case of the Cabela's guns, I pointed that the front sights were crooked, and the sales staff removed them from the sales floor immediately. They sent them back to Remington.

Go to the Marlin owner's forum and you can date the gun and find out a ton of information on the specific model. RC stands for regular Carbine. If it is pre-1955 it is not drilled and tapped. $1075 would be extremely high for my market (Atlanta) for a 336 in 30-30. I just traded for a pre-crossbolt safety 336 in 35 Rem from 1980 that was priced at $650 in excellent condition.

Regards,

Kris
