marlin 336

  1. Firearms General Discussion
    There was an event today that has me rethinking the lever action 30-30 as a SHTF survival rifle. While at the local sandpit sending some rounds downrange my Marlin 336 in 30-30 had a double feed. To resolve the issue the lever had to be removed - with a screw driver and punch pin. The rounds...

    Someone recommend a good optic for a Marlin 336 lever action in 30-30 Winchester. I am currently looking at a Burris Fullfield II 2x-7x-35mm. Over the decades my "go to" optics have been Nikon. They have provided years of reliability on various rifles my family owns. Then there is the...

    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...

    Found an older Marlin 336 in a local pawn shop and put it on layaway. According to the serial number, the rifle was made in 1976. I am thinking about leaving it without a scope. The receiver is drilled and tapped. This would be an up close deer rifle. I thought about having it cerakote...

    As I am sitting here thinking about what I should post and how it should be worded, what comes to mind is a jig-saw puzzle. My firearms are divided into 2 main categories, hunting and defense. Hunting includes remington model 700, remington 870, mossberg 590, marlin 336, FN/FAL, ruger 10/22...

    With SKS prices creeping close to the $300 price range, why are they considered a viable option for survivalist,,, or even anyone else? Back in the 1990s when you could pick up an SKS for less then $100, yea, I could see buying one then. But over the past 2 decades prices have steadily gone...

    Earlier this year I found the 32 Win Special 165 gr FTX LEVERevolution, and looking forward to my first kill. Seems to have a flatter trajectory. Anybody have experience with this load? What should I expect vs. Remington Soft Point, or the Winchester Power Point (both at 170gr)? I'm only...

    I have been giving some serious thought to my final weapons purchase. Currently, I have a Glock 19, Ruger 10/22 SS and a Benelli Nova 24" 20 gauge that the whole family can handle. I have been stockpiling .308 for the past few years but it's time to get the gun. I have narrowed the field down...

    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...

    I'm thinking about getting a new deer rifle and if I do, it's going to be a Marlin 336. I've been reading about the 336 in 35rem. I'm sorry, but I don't know what that is? Can someone help me to understand if that is a 30-30 cal. or what. If you can help me get unstuck from stupid, I would...

    One of the most asked questions I see on the forum - "what is the best survival rifle?" A well balanced answer is, there is no perfect rifle. If you live in Alaska, your rifle needs are going to be a lot different then someone that lives in the Southern states. Its doubtful someone living in...

    Back in October I believe, I was posting about some jamming issues I've had with my Yugo SKS http://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=76568&highlight=yugo+jamming It had been suggested that I replace the gas valve as that was the most likely culprit. It did look corroded and nasty. I...

    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?

    I received this question from a contact form. First thing, check the local laws. Some states do not want you using anything less then a 223 or 243 on deer. After that, the 243 is the smallest caliber I recommend for deer. Besides the 243, there is the 25-06, 7mm-08 and the 308. There are a...
