Need info on a Marlin 336
Hey guys, I'm trying to identify a Marlin 336W in a local store as either a pre or post remington takeover. Does anyone know how to tell? I heard if the Serial number starts with "MR" followed by numbers, as well as the mark of "REP" on the rear of ejector port side of the barrel then it is a remington made model. If it starts with 9 followed by numbers (dont know about the mark on the barrel) then it is a Marlin. The one I found has 9xxxxxx as a serial number, but it does have "REP" on the barrel. Im confused. Thanks for the help.
