An "S" suffix on a model number/lettering usually indicated the update/addition of the crossbolt safety - as in: 336AS.
Walnut was used for directly-Marlin-sold rifles with non-lamo stocks; Walnut-stained hardwood was used for the stocks of rifles sold through mass marketeers like WalMart
, K-Mart, Western Auto, etc.
The same Model 336
action was used for all .308 Marlin Express, .338 Marlin Express, .356 Winchester, .375 Winchester, .444 Marlin, .450 Marlin, .45-70, and Marlin Model 1895 & Glenfield CF - rifles & carbines - with minor modifications to the internals & mag tube for the larger bores.
