I've had a 336 Octagon in 30-30 tucked away and was wondering what they were going for nowadays.... Its in great shape with only a few boxes of ammo through it...Spent most of its life as a safe queen... I bought it from the original owner.

In excellent condition I would think at least $800 maybe a good bit more if you find a motivated buyer. They only made them for one year.


Always remember that you are unique, just like everyone else.

Neither, the 336 Octagon was its own model and was rollmarked as such on the barrel. I have a beater 1894 Octagon and always thought it would be cool to have the sibling. I might be interested if the price were right.


Keep moving forward!

What is the barrel length of your 336 octagon?

Octagons are 22" (same as ZG) with a straight stock and the end cap forearm. Micro groove barrels and supposedly made only in 1973, however mine and a few others that I have heard of, is on a '72 frame.

Minty ones are bringing crazy money- upwards from a grand. (That would not buy mine.). I forget the exact number made, but it was less than 2500. Jack

Not to hijack this thread but since they were mentioned what are the Zane Grey models bringing?

As a follow up, I saw where an Octagon sold a few days ago for $1200 and someone told me of one at $1400. There is one on GB with a scratch across the receiver, that was at $1000 a day or so ago.

Mine is minty. Since I don't need the cash right now, I think I will just keep it. My bride says that our guns are a lot better than money in the bank these days. Makes us both happy. Jack
