I just got done cleaning my 336 (in .30-30) 10 min. ago. Not a detail strip like you're describing.

It's so darn easy to pull the bolt and run a couple patches through.

Yesterday I wen to the range with my first reloads....

My first two shots at 100 yds scored on my little 3x3 diamond sticker.....no glass, just a Williams apeture sight.

I'm mighty found of her....my first and only center fire rifle.

Any chance I could get my hands on that manual? I just inherited a 336 and would like to give it a cleaning like you've described.

shazbot@arilion.com - if you get time. Thanks!

Here is the link to the manual, note it is for a few different models.

Any chance you could forward the detailed disassembly instructions to me? I have the marlin owners manual but want to do the same thing you have...

Hey Glenn B, Nice article. I just found this post and I was planning the same kind of activity with my son this weekend. We just purchased two used 336's to use for our first deer hunt. Can you send that detailed manual to dan(at)danbranan.com

Thanks!

Very interesting article. I too found the Marlin manual leaving a little to be desired as I tried to disassemble and clean my gun. Is there any way you could send me a copy of the detailed manual? restacy(at)msn(dot)com.

Thank you,

Russ S

I would love to have that manual as well. I have a 336 that was left where it shouldn't have been for a long time and I need to take it completely apart and remove some serious rust.

Glenn B said...

Here is a link that reader Russ sent to me a few days ago: http://www.gunuts.com/view.php?view=details&model_id=40&type=2. That is the same set of instructions I have been sending to folks.

All the best,
GB

Any tips on the bolt and ejector spring alignment? I just bought a 336, sighted it in, took it apart,cleaned it and the bolt will not go back in. I have tried to align the ejector with the bolt but it will not push in and I won't force it.
thanks for any advice

I don't remember any problems with getting mine back together, but it has been awhile. I was just hunting and my son used the marlin. He did not get anything, neither did I, but I will take mine down to clean it and will mention here what I did to reassemble it. I sure do not want to try giving any suggestions on a problem like tbat just based on memory on a rifle I do not disassemble and reassemble all that often.

I should get it cleaned in a day or two at most and will let you know.

All the best,
GB

I just checked the manual on the ejector issue. The instructions for reassembly don't get very specific on how to do it but do make mention of making sure to have the ejector assembly in correct position for reassembly and shows the position in diagram N. If you check the manual, you will see that diagram N is not that helpful. I think a quick look at diagram M, the one about removing the ejector, may give more of a clue as to the correct way to put it back in, that is if they pictured it coming out as it would have been positione dinside the receiver, and it looks that way to me.

Hi there Glenn B.

First time to your blog. Thank you very much for the helpful videos. I just bought my first gun (Marlin 336 in .30 .30) after having the time of my life on a pig hunt last year. I am a little intimidated as I have never owned a rifle before and your clear, explicit, and no nonsense videos helped me out immensely for my first gun cleaning.

Cheers,
