I have a 1950 waffle top in 35 Remington and two 39a's one made in 46 and the other in 47. I love the older Marlin's. Some don't like the thicker forend but I don't have a problem with it.
Nice, the 1950 336 in 35 Remington is much more rare and worth more. I had a 1957 39A (a P), but the rifle wouldn't eject properly. The trader took it back and sent it to a well-known gunsmith. He handmade a new ejector part, and it still wouldn't work. It was also a great looking rifle so I hated returning it but if the 'smith couldn't fix it I sure couldn't.I have a 1950 waffle top in 35 Remington and two 39a's one made in 46 and the other in 47....
