I want one without it, but would like it as new (used) as possible without the safety. I have a 1980 375 and it does not have the safety.

I think that starting in 1984 the extra safety came on all the lever actions.
I believe that is correct. I have an '84 Texan with the CBS. I think that is the first year of the 336TS (T=Texan, S=Safety).

If it's not an aesthetic thing you might not mind it. I've carried a 94 Win as my primary rifle for 30 years. When I bought my M94C I was a little worried the safety might change my habits or something. I wanted it gone real bad. But I started cowboy action and hunting with the gun and found the safety to be a non factor if I want it to be, or I can use it when it's real nice to have it, climbing trees and such. It looks funny, but I've found it a net positive.

I had a 30AS years ago with the safety and didn't care for it.
To me a marlin is like a revolver, no safety needed if handled correctly.
Efficient and simple, straightforward function. I like it !:D

I agree with your idea of lever gun safety. I'm using mine because I have never cleared a gun to negotiate an obstetrical like we are supposed to. And here it would be impractical as you would never have a round chambered when it counted. So I use the safety because it's there and I sometimes do fall. ;)

I have a 1983, 336 ER that has a cross bolt safety. (the first year with the cross bolt safety).

None of my other 336s have them. I used it for unloading the gun. Other than that I didn't use it.

removed it from my 336, I kept the original parts though. If I ever sell it (UNLIKELY) I`ll re-install it..

It is simple to remove the sliding safety and replace with with a piece of round stock notched for the firing pin and the same width as the receiver. It is held in place by the same screw that holds the detent ball and spring for the sliding safety. I made mine from brass round rod and polished the ends for a bit of bling.

I hate to admit what happened last Nov on my Elk hunt: I had been working a gorge that comes out to a tank at about 8000 ft and had earlier put on the CBS. I have a few levers w/o the damn thing and had not pushed it off. Well of course three nice big fat Cows (Elk) jumped out from a deadfall and took off, I raised the rifle got on the last one in the line and pulled the trigger++ Click++. Didn't get another chance the next 2 days. NO MEAT in FREEZER!!

Hi all, new here and just got into Marlin LAs. In an answer to the cross-bolt safety, has anyone here tried the Saddle Ring Safety? It sold (temporary sold out) online at "Saddle Ring Safety Delete _ beartooth mercantile". Looks pretty cool, although I'm still waiting to buy one (available two-three weeks). Let me know what you think.
