The Marlin 336 is a great rifle if you buy one pre-Remington. I'd look for a used one that was built in No. Haven. Any thing prior to 2007.
Follow this to determine the year.

The following table can be used to date the year of manufacture of a Marlin 336. It is also valid for determining most other Marlin firearm build dates from 1946 to the present.
Marlin year of manufacture maybe determined from the following table of letter/numeral prefixs to the serial number:
Date Prefix(s)
1946 C
1947 D
1948 E
1949 F
1950 G
1951 H
1952 J
1953 K
1954 L
1955 M
Date Prefix(s)
1956 N
1957 P
1958 R
1959 S
1960 T
1961 U
1962 V
1963 W
1964 Y, Z
1965 AA
Date Prefix(s)
1966 AB
1967 AC
1968 AD, 68
1969 69
1970 70
1971 71
1972 72
Starting in 1973, the year of manufacture can be determined by subtracting the first two digits of the serial number from 100: Example: SN 2512345 would have been made in 1975 [100 - 25 = 75].
