The one from Midway should work fine. Marlin will sell it to you too for a fair price and ship it to you quickly.

I feel confident that the stock Marlin Ejector works just fine in the vicinity of Bears. My 1895GS Guide Gun harvested an Idaho Black Bear last Spring and the spent round ejected just fine Though a second shot was not required it is worth noting that the subsequent round fed smoothly and also ejected the unfired round without incident -- even with a bear in close proximity.

I'm sure a stock ejector will work fine. That was just the first one that popped up when I ran a search.

For synthetic stock images, go here.

Somewhere on THR, in some dusty long since deceased thread
(that I spent half hour looking for to no avail),
there's an image of a 336 with a prototype synth camo stock for 336
produced by Wild Dog. Apparently, it never went into production.

More's the pity.

When I first started looking at 336s,
I intended to get one and put a synth stock on it.
(At the time, I owned a Rem 870 with synth stock.)

Since then, I've become fond of wood furniture again.

Still, synth stocks have their place in extreme climates.

Mine only takes 5 rounds (well, plus one in the chamber I suppose). Do I have an oddball?

Speaking of synthetic furniture, here's my new 336XLR, scoped with
a Weaver Classic V7. Sorry about the photo quality. A photographer I'm not.

I finally got to shoot it today, but unfortunately there was too much snow
flyin' to sight in the scope outdoors. I had to settle for a temporary sight-in
at 30 yards indoors. I know - not much of a test.

In any event, once I was scoped in this puppy shot groupings that were
basically indistinguishable - a big, ragged dead-center hole on a KWPGS 100-yard
sighting target. I was shooting with Hornady LeverEvolution.

Man, is this ever a schweeet rifle. My first-ever lever, and I'm diggin' it!

I gotta admit, WS, that's an impressive looking machine.

It'll be interesting to hear about your accuracy at 200+ with it with those LE.

Talking stocks

Hey F3RR3T,
My 336 is rigged with wood stocks that are camo. Pics are at posts #428 and #430 I think. Ramline does make a mossy oak break up pattern synth. stock this past year.
They cost bout $80.

Hope this helps.

I just got a JC Higgins model 45 .30-.30 with marble sights (buckhorn & gold bead) and a scope base. My question, if i was to take off the scope base would I need to do something with the screw holes?

Culito, I'd fish around for some of the screws that will fit in there. Plug them up.

Marlin might be able to provide them. If not, more than likely others on THR (or Marlin Owners Forum) probably will.

Sorry to be so scarce in the club lately. The business is keeping me insanely busy right now. I think I'm starting to see a bit of relief, but won't know for sure for another month or so.

Keep it going, folks.

Long live 336.

Nem

The rifle will operate without the holes plugged. For aesthetic reasons I'd call Marlin and get the filler screws.

When I was 11 or 12 my dad bought me a 336 that did not have a letter on the model. We put a nice leather sling on it, and a simmons 1.5 to 4 scope with see thru rings. I killed a doe with it that year.


Later in life I took it with me when I moved out. I had a girlfriend at the time that was nuts. I broke up with her, and she ended up calling the cops to say that I had a loaded rifle in my house and was suicidal. But remember? I broke up with her.
Anyway. The cops came, took my gun, took me for evaluation. I was out in like 3 hours (very pissed I might add). I went to get my gun, and they did not have it. There was no report of a gun being taken.

I could not remember the name of the cop, and I tried and tried to get my gun back. Well later on they said it was destroyed.

So my gun was taken from me. Probably not destroyed, and is being used by some cop for hunting or a present for their kid. Needless to say it has been 17 years for me to go deer hunting, and this year I went. I built an AR-15 this year (finally getting back to the things that made me happy as a kid. I am 32 now). It was the only rifle I had at the time. I killed a deer with it. It did a good job, but the meat was ruined on the front two shoulders (55 grain soft point at 3200fps really does on job on flesh). I never wished I had my 30-30 like I did that day.
When I got home I told my wife that I wish I could have that 30-30 back. She asked me what it looked like. I told her about the gold trigger and side ejection. Well Christmas day I got a security locker for my gun collection I have aquired. When I opened it, there it was. The 30-30 with a gold trigger that I lost all those years ago. It wasn't the same gun (the older one did not have the safety). It was missing the leather sling, scope and mounts, but there was my 30-30 that I had been missing for so long.

I went out to shoot it. It shot 1.5 high at 100 with a 1.5 in hole. 11 shots just jagged out a hole. Great gun. Thanks to the wife.

Resistance if futile. I just purchased my fourth straight stocked 336. Didn't even know I needed it but couldn't pass it up.

This one's a 1965 vintage. Doesn't look like it's seen much duty. I'm excited to get it out to the range.

Sheesh, I think its an addiction.

Hello, my name is Nem,
and I'm addicted to lever guns.

<many voices from the club house>
"Hello, Nem."

(Only difference is, here,
we encourage a mild addiction,
especially if it fulfills functional needs for tools.)



PS: Mo, pics please, when you get a chance.
It'd be great to see all four together,
maybe even with a pg stock in the mix for comparison.

Too bad they're not considering
a bolt action in .30-30 Win
to extend the range
of an awesome,
available rnd.

Can't be done?

I don't believe that.

From Wikipedia on .30-30 Winchester:

Quote:
Rimmed cartridges are chambered in bolt action rifles,
but .30-30 bolt actions are uncommon today,
despite being quite effective in the field.
