That’s the one I have, well mine’s a “bit” older and I think it does a fine job. Good trade.

I'd have to know what was wrong with the Marlin before I know whether it was a good deal or not.
Yeah that's what i'd like to know. A working Marlin 336c could be worth about 800 to $900.00. So it would have to be pretty broken to make it a even trade.

as others mentioned.. it's a good trimmer. I have one and the new motorized one with the adjustable jaws and no shell plates.

The Rifle is locked up, Lever is locked half cocked won't open or close. any further. Can't afford the price of repair quoted by the nearest gun smith. I traded it back to the guy I bought it from, I still have my Model 94

Does it have a scope rail? I've seen those have mount screws which drag on the bolt, displace metal then lock up..especially a lever action.

No scope mounts , just the Factory sights.

Probably the lifter/carrier is messing up. I just bought a marlin '94 and the 336 are both really easy to work on. Take out 4 or 5 screws and the gun is apart. Lots of videos out there on disassembly.

If YOU are happy with the trade - good for you! I had one of those RCBS trimmers for a while and didn't really like it. I ended up giving it away and bought a Lyman case trimmer with the universal heads. Works great.

The one thing I didn't like about the Marlin 336 I "inherited" was the pistol grip stock. I ended up converting mine to a straight grip/lever and a new Boyd's stock set. Love it now. The coyotes don't like it much, but I do.

Like I said it is a done deal. I have my Model '94 that I am more than happy with. I needed a case trimmer of my own, I have about 300 30-06 cases that need to be trimmed. I will be spending time at my reloading bench later today/this evening.

No problem Jay. Glad you are happy with your new trimmer. Everybody needs a case trimmer. Mine is similar to yours, but the end when your clamp down handle is i have a collect type lock down. Think it is a earlier RCBS model.
