I know on old Marlins you go by the first 2 digits of the serial number and take away from 2000 for year of production. does the same apply to Marlin's Glenfield line? I have a Marlin/Glenfield model 30 that I'd like to know the age of. Thanks.

It mostly does apply BUT only until 1970 I believe. Prior to that, the serial number would start with letters. I can tell you that the model 30 was made prior to 1973. The 30A was made from 1973-1983. Sometimes you would also see something like 3072 which would be model 30 and 1972 for the year. The only real difference between a mod 30 and the 336 is the wood used for the stock. I know it's not helping you date it, but .... hey ... didn't you get my M/G mod 30??
