Old rifle, been in the family a long time. Can anyone tell me if this looks original? To me it almost looks like the barrel was replaced since there is print under the bbl band. ?

Its a G prefix so I'm assuming 1950

Thanks
Marlin

Yep 99% sure that original. Reason being is I have a '46 model 336. E prefix I believe. Mine is the same way and I always thought it was a little odd too. Man, great gun huh!

Vintage Gun grips in Florida sells reproduction buttplates. They show the dimensions and screw hole spacing on their website as I recall. Order one large enough so that it can be ground (sanded) for proper fit.
Hope this helps,
Rick

I doubt it's original. Model 36 was discontinued in 1948 and OP said the rifle was dated 1950. Can you post a pic of the action.

Some of the Marlins did have the rear band over the barrel stamping. When they changed the band placement there were barrels still in stock with the stamping for the previous model and they were used. I have a '46 model 36 with this condition. I would like to see a pic of the action as well, and it may help solve the mystery. I was thinking all the old barrels were used prior to 1950 but stranger things have happened I guess.
Looking forward to a pic of the action,
Rick

Thanks also for the lead on the buttplates Rick.

Definitely a 36 action. Now the date of 1950 becomes suspect.

Could the "G" actually be a "c" or a "C" ?? That would make it 1945 or 46 which would make more sense.

Agree with digger. Mine is I believe an "E" and was made in '48. IIRC, that was the first year of the model 336.

It's a '46 model 36 most likely. The "c" on mine looks like a small "g". The "G" on my '50 model is obviously a "G". Nice rifles and I enjoy mine.
Good Luck with the buttplate, and take care,
Rick

Because the 36 was only made through 1947 I would go out on a limb and say that's a badly marked "C" and a 1946 gun. Nice rifle.
