But then there are variations of each and in some cases variations of the variations. I bet if you said I'm going to collect Marlin rifles made since 1970 and have one of all the variations you would be near 100 rifles. Just off the top of my head for the 336 their would be the A, C, Octagon, Cowboy, Youth model, and Texan. Heck a person could just collect 336's in .30-30 and have a lot of rifles.Now you've done it! Now you'll have to add a Marlin 39, 1894, a 57M.
Avoid the 56's
