I've got a sudden yen to get one of Marlin's new short-barreled .30-30's for fun and perhaps for black bear. I had a very used Marlin Glenfield (?) years back, but that was the only Marlin .30-30 I've owned.
Anyone have one of these? They look like loads of fun.

Hunting buddy of mine has one. Very quick rifle, very agile. XS makes a scout scope system that'd fit right nice. I'm gonna catch flack for a scope on a lever gun I know but anywho. Nice gun. We're heading to the range tomarrow(fri) so i'll get you a range report.

I have one. Haven't shot it, yet. I also ordered a full-length stock for it, from Marlin. I wanted a 16" .30-30, but with full-length stock, so this I got this with the intention of converting it.
I'll also put a ghost ring sight on it and a leather Milt Sparks butt-cuff.

A full lenght stock? I assume this is the forend from a standard barrel length 336? :confused:
