Sweet rifle. I've always found that a smooth lever rifle is fun to shoot, scoped ones even more fun to me.

I had the 336C bought in the late 70's, walnut stock with no checkering. I mounted Holden Ironsighter scope rings on it with a 4 power scope so I could use the iron sights at 50 yds or the scope for longer distances. Best dang rig for hunting MN whitetail and easy to carry and handle thru the woods. I regretted selling it several years ago but got lucky and connected with a new Henry Big Boy with the brass receiver in .44 mag for less than what I sold the Marlin for.

I hate to admit this, but I have been so busy with new business ventures that I haven't been able to shoot this beauty yet. I plan on getting a Leupold VX2 3-9x40 scope for it along with some Warne rings. It will be a tough decision as to whether I hunt with this rig or my Ruger GSR this year.

Redlegagent, I surely hope you are
correct.

This posting reminds me of what a
wonderful product Marlin put out for
decades.

My first "real" rifle was a Marlin
Glenfield 30-30. My dear dad gave
it to me for Christmas 1968. Still
my favorite firearm in my collection.

Am eagerly saving up for a .357 Marlin,
whether JM-stamped or new, if they
can truly come up to par.

Congratulations, Garandfunk.
(BTW - Just GOTTA love them
Garands!!)

Thanks from garandfunk

My 30-30 Marlin

My wife gave me her Father's .30-.30 Marlin 336 for Christmas several years ago. She inherited her mothers Winchester .22 Mag lever action when her mother passed a few years back. They are together again in our safe. Both are in very good condition.

I had a newer Marlin (or Remlin as some guys call them). I can say with experience that this older Marlin looks much, much nicer than the newer model that I owned. From the stock to the blueing. I did harvest my first deer with the new Marlin back in 2012, so I can say that it was sufficient enough to put meat on the table. It did have a ton of play in the trigger, which is a known problem for the gold trigger Marlins and was VERY picky about ammo. The only thing that would shoot well in that particular rifle was Remington CoreLokt 150 grain ammo. LeverEvolution ammo was a joke....it looked like I was throwing rocks at the target. That could be the micro-groove barrel. But some guys have had luck with LeverEvolution in Marlin 30-30's.

I like my older JM Marlin and prefer it to the newer Marlin 336.
