Welcome in, NGa.MtnHunter. (What do we call you for short? NGMH?)

That's a beautiful Marauder. Can't say I've ever seen one before.

How's that 16.25" barrel shoot at 100 yds?

And what do you shoot in it?

Any tales to tell about it?

Thanks Nematocyst, and yep you can call me NGMH.

The Marauders are purdy rare sence Marlin only made them for 2 years. I lucked up on this one about a year ago, a feller advertised it for sale on a Ga outdoor forum. The ad just said 336 30/30 for sale in good shape $200, I called and told him I would take it and when I got there to pick it up I couldnt believe my eyes, it wus a Marauder. Just pure luck!

It shoots great, I take a paper plate and draw a 4" circle in the middle of it and color the circle in with a black sharpie. I can hit inside the circle at 100 yards with the iron sights and thats good enuff for me. Around here where I deer hunt at, a 100 yards is a long shot most of my shots are within 70 yards. Rem Cor-Lokt's is all I shoot, I use 170gr in my 30/30's and 200gr in my 35's.

Well as of this week I'm finally a member, having picked up a 336W, plan on using it for bear in the spring.

Question though: I unscrewed the back sling swivel (don't want a sling or swivels on it right now) and it came out no problem. Tried the front swivel, and then found out it's somehow actually attached to the rear barrel band. Now the barrel band isn't as tight as it was from the factory, ugh. I assume this isn't a safety issue, but are there any options to get the swivel off the band, or do I need to buy a whole new band (like a third party uncle mikes)?

Billy, welcome in. I'll let our more technically oriented members address your issue. We'll solve it.
_____________

I just spent a few minutes rereading the first page of this thread. Ah, the memories.

We've come a long way. So much knowledge in here. I need to reread more pages. All of them, in fact.

It's also interesting to think about who among the founders are still active.

Mo, who posted on page 1, is one of our leaders now.

Frank is, too, albeit in a different chapter.

I bought a 336 and received it with a broken stock. While waiting for insurance to cover it i ordered a factory second stock and forearm off ebay. The only blemish is a black mark you will see in the pics. We stained it and clear coated it. Looks awesome.
Only problem is the original stock was about a 1/8 inch narrower top to bottom. So the screw that holds the stock wont thread through to the bottom. Where can i get a longer screw ? Or what should i be looking for?
Now i am just waiting for my Pachymer recoil pad and be all set.
Here are the pics:














As per my last post

I had to get a new butt plate for the new stock. So i decided to go witha pachmayr, after reading some posts somewhere they said the one for the 336 didnt fit well.. then said #01702 . Well it arrived in the mail today and it does not fit at all.. what a bummer and a waste of money . Whoever said that it fit is getting a cyber punch in the mouth..

Either I'm confused, or the parallel universe has imploded. It appears to be gone entirely.

Can I sit over here and eat my crow?

No need to eat crow, Frank.

We'll hunt some deer and have a fine venison dinner.

You are always welcome here, my friend.

Good to see you back.

As for the other ... I have no clue.
We may never know,
but best not to discuss it here.

(Sorry to new members to be a bit cryptic, but it's for the best.)

Moving on.

The topic is Marlin 336.

The model 30TK is my favorite version of the 336 as well. Marlin made these for K-Mart only, back in 1989-90. Mine is a 1990 model and wears a Williams peep with a white stroke of fingernail polish on the front sight bead.

Well, while we're on the subject of the 336 and fine venison dinners...

I'm not sure exactly why I neglected to mention it or take any pics, but I took a small buck this year with my 336.

He was maybe just a little over 100 yards out, and facing away from me at about 280 degrees or so.

I had a steady hold, felt good about my sight picture, and took the shot.

Hit him in the classic "Behind the shoulder" spot, turned his innards to mush, and came out through the off shoulder.

He went straight down, kicked and flopped a little, and died right on top of his tracks.

He wasn't very big, but the meat was excellent.

As far as the whole "The .30-30 is a punk" thing goes... For a Texas White Tail Deer it seems about perfect to me.

Merry Christmas, guys.

This is my kid's brand new piece. Since he's over 20 he doesn't like writing letters to Santa anymore but I've found that
Santa knows anyway and being a traveling man he surely can appreciate the virtues of a good saddle gun, and I like
to think he had a twinkle in both his eyes when he left this 336W and scarfed up the snickerdoodles and milk I
left for him.
Ah, to still believe is a thing of beauty. Merry Christmas boys and girls.

Great gift, Martin.

Nice to know Santa isn't part of the anti crowd.

I recently re-joined the 336 Club. It has an old Weaver K-4 steel scope on it right now. It has moisture inside and will be replaced soon.

.35 Remington circa 1981

I just picked up an '87 336 in .35 Remington the other day from a THR member, and I already had a '73 Glenfield, so I guess I'm a member twice over. I think I have Marlinitis.

Definitely sounds like the early stages. We won't know for sure until its too late but I would watch for signs like a thin wallet and the urge to try other calibers and barrel lengths at which point you've pretty much been assimilated.

Walkalong, Jalexander and Raider Bill, welcome in!

Great to see more older rifles in the house.

Walkalong, I heard rumors that you might be joining us. Glad your here.

Jalexander, any chance for pics? Not required, but always fun.

Raider Bill, where'd you get that wicked cool big loop. Mikey likes it!

And what are those sights?
