Best Answer
Marlin used a letter in front of serial number that correlated to the year of production up until 1972, from then on you take the first two numbers in the serial number and subtract them from 100 to get the production date. So if the first two numbers are 22, then 22 from 100 is 78. Your gun was made in 1978.Actually,

For ANY Model 336 from:

1940-1968 a letter was leading the Serial#...

1969-1972 only the first two numerals of the Serial# indicate actual year (69, 70, 71, 72) of production...

1973-2000 this is where someone would subtract the first two digits (which range from 27 to 00) from 2000 to get year of production...

2001 'till 3000... the first two digits (99, 98, 97 and so on) subtracted from 100 will give the 20xx date of manufacture...
