    Looks like some Ruger lever-actions in our near future! Will Vista keep the Cor-Lokt name alive? Remington Asset bids revealed

    A couple of months ago I found a Marlin 336 that had been made in 1976. The sights are pretty much useless in low light. So I thought about replacing them with something a little more modern. The question I keep asking myself, should I mess with a rifle that was made in the 1970s? In all...

    Ok so I've been wanting a lever action rifle for a long time and my only dilemma is what caliber I should get it in. I've leaned towards .30-30 for availability but I also own a .357 mag revolver and currently reload for it. I really like the old cowboy idea of a matched pistol and carbine...

    I live in Australia and due to gun laws here i'm not permitted to own a semi-automatic rifle as i'm not a primary producer. I've decided to go for a lever action rifle as an all purpose gun. What i intend to use the rifle for is club target shooting and feral animal hunting (rabbits, foxes...

    Ok guys I've been wanting to start hunting. I am currently saving up for a hunting rifle, in the mean time I will be hunting squirrel to "get my feet wet". Right now I own a 10/22 (for squirrels and zombies) that I have done a little work to upgrading and what not, and I have my savage model 320...

    I've recently read an article that I'm sure has already been posted on here before, but had some concerns I wanted addressed personally after reading it: http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/national-guard-whistleblower-doomsday-preppers-will-be-treated-as-terrorists_10252012 What I take from...

    Ok, I know, I know... there are a million threads on 'practical' survival firearms. The Henry Golden Boy is definitely not a practical survival rifle. If you were going to grab a .22, most would probably go with a 10/22 or something like that. Practical is good, definitely nothing wrong...

    Went out the other day to re-supply some ammo for my kit and realized that this ammo in .32 special for my Marlin 336 is getting up there in price, $25.00 or so for a box of 20 rounds. It's my only lever action rifle and it spits expensive lead, but my dad gave me that rifle so I am going to...

    What do these rifles in good used condition usually go for?

    I don't want to start yet another cartridge debate but for my shtf/bug out main rifle, i have settled on either a Marlin 336 or a Winchester model 94 lever action. I know that they are not the number one choice but my Dad (I'm only 15) is not too fond of the evil black rifles, mostly he doesn't...

    What is your choice as the largest caliber you shoot, and in what platform? Also, are you thinking about anything larger? I know a lot of people go no larger than 308 in one of its various forms. But I chose to step up to .338 XLR in a Marlin for Elk hunting, the potential of running across a...

    I was toying around with ideas for a general purpose survival rifle, and came upon the Marlin 1894c in .357 magnum. I read that .357 magnum is a great defensive round, and can be used to take down deer as well. Any opinions on using this sort of rifle as a survival rifle? Also, anyone know the...

    I've been looking at my battery as I'm just getting into the whole preparedness thing. I love my marlin, I can fit my reloading kit for it in a back pack (lee loader) and I have a nice collection of brass and other components for this caliber. Buying another rifle is not really an option for...

    Was thinking on my way to work today about the marlin 336 when this thought came into my head. Is there much different in the power and accuracy of a lever and a bolt, since it's not spending energy to eject a spent cartridge?

    Hello All Well I did a search on this before I posted this thread but either I don't know how to use the search feature properly or there wasn't a thread that touched on this question. I'm curious to hear people's thoughts on the merit of a bolt action rifle vs. a lever action. I have a wide...
