Case hardened Model 336

Post by scosgt » Tue Mar 29, 2016 8:37 pm

I just acquired a Model 336 (NOT C) made 1975. It appears to have a case hardened receiver. I don't know how to post pictures, so I made a quick Youtube video.
Any info appreciated. Paid a shooter price, so just interested if anyone has any info since I don't find any references to case hardened 336's.

Definitely not Marlin's work. Looks like they brass plated the lower trigger plate also.
Marlin lever actions 1870's-WWI, Ballards, and single shot rifles!

Thanks for the info. Hopefully it is worth the $250 I paid for it.
