Marlin 336 Youth Model seems like a winner

    Was at Walmart tonight and they had a standard 336 and a Youth model I have not seen. It has a shortened buttstock about 12" I think. 18" barrel, 30-30 cal.

    Laminated forearm and buttstock and standard sights. There is a sling swivel on the ring at end of forearm that would accept a Milspec sling swivel.

    $407.00 for it while the standard Model was 387.00.

    If I did not already have my Texan I would have probably jumped on it.

    It had that marvelous lever lock Walmart puts on that made me feel ever so safe so I couldn't work the action. The bolt was black in color so I am assuming it is blued and not chromed like my Texan.

    Does anyone know if all of the bolts are no longer chromed?

    I see no reason why this would not make a great backpack rifle that would slide down in many packs. I did not have a tape with me but I am guessing it is right at 36" long.

    I could not focus on front sight (w/ glasses on) so for a old guy a scope is required even if it is a red dot.

    Perhaps with a Aimtech see thru base I might could focus on front sight

    They used to make a spikehorn with a 16.5 inch barrel and shortened stock. I'm guessing this was 10 years ago or so. Their bolts have never been chromed.

    Yes I have seen the spikehorns and these are definitely not one. 12.5" stock and 16 1/4" barrel and 33 1/2" OAL.

    Any idea what year Marlin quit chroming bolts?

    I didn't think any were chrome. I thought most were "in the white."

    I have a dozen Marlins made from 1958-2005. None have chromed bolts.
