Sounds like a buyer's market right now. May have to duck into some pawnshops and see what is up. GREAT scores guys.

The 336 club needs more 35 Remington (and 38-55) range reports - hint, hint.

hey, I didn't feel bad about the price. I'm sure they made money on the deal (it was tagged in at the shop almost a year ago). The pawn shop has some weird deals from time to time. I will say that the rifle was filthy, and that had something to do with it. I also picked up a Sears Model 41 .22 single shot, it was filthy but I cleaned it up and it looks new. Got that for $55 otd. The more common stuff is priced higher, 870s for more than new prices, insane prices for bubba milsurps. But you never know what you might find.

Bought one for $250 from 1976 in perfect condition and took an elk six days later. Deadly accurate and is a joy to shoot!

New member, just wanted to say hi. I started getting into marlins a couple years ago. I have picked up a couple of special ones last year. 1949 336A in 32 special and a 1953 sc in 35 rem. This year is starting off good also, I found a 39m, that I will be picking up in a couple days. Have a good day, Matt

With the XS Sights and the Hornady ammo, I was shooting 9" high at 50 yards with the rear ghostring all the way down. I will call XS at get a taller front sight and that should solve the problem. The one thing that surprised me a bit, I had a 20" bolt action rifle with me in .308. The bolt action had noticably less recoil than the 30-30. I did not expect that. I expected more recoil out of the bolt action.
Based on conversation with XS, I took rifle to range over Christmas holiday to accurately shoot it again with the hunting ammo I plan to use (Hornady leverevolution) to determine how much it was off at 100 yards with 10 shots (took best 8 shots for measurement). I don't remember the number. The reason I reshot at 100 yards with my hunting ammo was I wanted to duplicate exactly how I would end up zeroing it.

I called XS with the numbers. As always they were very helpful over the phone and sent me a taller front sight that would allow for rear to still have some up and down adjusting range. I took this to the local smith for install along with my Christmas presents (Leupold scout scope, Leupold quick release rings, XS rail mount designed for the 336 which allows irons to still function). I just got it back from the smith so I am going to take it to the range soon. I'm exicted. In a few weeks she'll be all sighted in.

One question I do have.

Why in the world do I feel more recoil from this 30-30 than a 308 bolt action? It will be fine for hunting but after 20 to 30 rounds at the range I don't want to shoot it any more. Has anyone added either a Pachymer limb saver or something else to drop the felt recoil a bit?

New member - just purchased a 336RC circa 1952 on Sunday last. Well used and loved, but has a beautiful piece of wood and a bright and shiny bore. I love the patina, and the fact that much of the blue on the receiver and all of it on the tang is gone just adds to the beauty - I just think of the hunts this fella has been on.

I think I am hooked. My wife's grampa had a 336 in 35Rem, if I'm nice I might be able to inherit it again (yep, had it for a while but I was exclusively hunting with a muzzleloader at the time and stupidly gave it back). Actually, would like the kid to get it, then he and dad could hunt together with 336's.

Has a circa 1950 scope (Redfield), but have ordered a rear sight and am going to remove the scope and hope my 50yr old eyes are good enough....

I'm a new member of the 336 club. I recall my first deer hunt fifty years ago. My BIL let me use his Marlin 336 and I was thrilled beyond belief. It's taken a few years to buy one, but I ran across this 1948 E rifle at a price I could not pass up. The Weaver K2.5 is like new, the rifle has some hunting rash and needs new screws. Previous owner used a chisel when he could not find a screwdriver. Shoots like a Marlin.

Welcome

Sorry to be derelict in my duty as host. I've been out of town recently - in the woods for a change - and swamped at work when here.

I have some new thoughts about the former in regards to my 336, but I'll save those for another day.

For now, welcome to all the new members: Fgr, Badlander, Hunterdad, Baldeagle, Matthew, Doug, Stg, JEB, OpelBlitz, Sheepdog, David, Madcratebuilder.

Hope I didn't leave anyone out.

Great to see the club still attracting new members.

Of course, it's no surprise given which rifle we're discussing.

Range Report

Took the darling out that I bought last Sunday, a circa 1952 30-30. Seemed the previous owner was sighted in with something a bit hotter and lighter than I had with me - 170 gr Rem was quite low at 50, off the paper at 100. Change to 150 gr Rem, almost "on." Decent group, was a long day before I got there so my shooting wasnt too hot.

Got the replacement rear leaf sight from Midway, now I'm dithering about removing the scope. May wait to see what the next gun show brings, maybe we'll find an un-scoped friend and I can leave the 4X Weaver on it (also circa 1950ish).

Almost afraid to let my wife shoot it....but then, that'll be an excuse to get another when she appropriates this one!

Thanks, the scope was a big selling point for me. I have a few other Weaver K series on old iron. I much prefer the old school look and hold my own out to 200yds against those young whippersnappers.
