    Default Marlin model 3079 lever gun?

    Looked at a marlin 30/30 today that the dealer had marked as a model 3079. Couldn't find any info on it so thought i'd pick your brains. Looks like a 336 to me but with embossed stock and a gold medallion on the butt. Is it basically a 336 or a cheap version? Value if in G/VG cond?

    Thanks for any input

    I did not see anything like that on the marlin web site

    http://www.marlinfirearms.com/

    I looked because I had never heard of one.

    Maybe its a .45-70? Maybe he meant .30-30? I dunno.

    They have made cheap 336 models, for sale by Walmart and places like that. "Glenfield" comes to mind.

    I found something that said that the model 3079 was a special run done by Marlin for Oklahoma Tire and Supply Stores. ...... These guns used a lesser quality birch wood stock, and run in the same values as standard model 30 Marlin lever actions. It is possible for the this model 3079 to not have a birch stock. A limited number of these gun were produced with the full Marlin treatment which included a walnut stock with bulls eye and white line spacers.

    I dunnot how much to trust Wikianswers, though.

    It's birch. For 250 it's about right on the money.

    My brother has a Marlin Glenfield. Sounds like the same deal as the 3079. Same guts as any other 336. Nice gun. Kind of heavy. He put a peep sight on his - those open buckhorn sights are no good for those of us in the bifocal brigade.
