I just got a Marlin mod 336 with no safety that I can see . I have one that is about 7 years old that has the hammer safety I think but the one I just got must be alot older . No hooded front sight either just mod 336 .

Any idea how old this pup is ?? Thanks Randy

I'm pretty sure that Marlin incororated a cross-bolt safety between 1986-1990.

I own a 39A with no safety (except for "half-cock") purchased in 1987.

Where do you live in Indiana? I've got some .30-30 ammo I'd like to give away. 336 is 30-30, right? Mine was. IM me. I might forget to get back to this thread.

They started the safety prior to 1990, if I remember correctly. A friend of mine actually missed a chance at a deer because he left the safety on. He pulled the trigger, only to hear "CLICK" and have the deer walk off. I've always felt a safety on a rifle with an exposed hammer is worthless, but to each his own...

+1.

I did note however that it appears on the Marlines an e-clip or pin can probably be used to keep the safety from being pushed to the "on" position. There's a groove in the safety where such a modification could be added.

The loudest "CLICK" is the one you don't expect...Conversely, the loudest "BOOM" is the one you don't expect either.

My brother saw the safety on my 336 and asked why.
