The Glenfield line is the discount version of old school Marlins. The only real differences
between the 336s and these guns were the un-checkered birch/beech furniture instead of walnut and the simpler rear sight.
This model has a short, 4-shot, magazine tube that has a dovetailed barrel to accept the magazine stud so the rifle doesn't have to use those tacky barrel bands. In this rifle's case, a simple rubber ring on the stud and a slight relieving of the wood fore-end will do wonders for accuracy according Paco Kelly's books.
This gun would be perfect for a barrel chop and crown, and I have marked it for that. The front sight is a dovetail brass bead.
Condition:
Finish wise, the previous owner was a devout user of PAM cooking spray as a preservative. It never worked well, and as such there is minor pitting on both sides of the receiver, and the left side of the barrel. I have removed just about all of the PAM residue, and re-lubed the rifle with Slip-2000.
The action is pretty good, better than my three 1980 336s. Still has some hesitation that Marlins are known for, and would benefit from some polishing, if you are that kind of levergun fan.
Wood has some scuffs and some scratches, none of them deep.
