I finally had money and found one after a long wait and him hawing around at gunshows.I have Murrays book and I know it was made in 1948.I am wondering about the barrel and barrelband.The band blocks out the Marlin address on the barrel-Has this been changed or the front wood replaced? It is marked 336-RC 30/30 but the band covers up the conn,USA then you just see the Est 1870.The rifle was only 170.00,I had always wanted an early one with no gold trigger,safety and the knurled top of receiver.Is this common with early 336 rifles where the band goes over some of the barrel markings??
