Gun shoots great and looks very cool with the gray furniture and SS metal. For some reason, Remlin put a stiff as a brick loading gate on the 336 and I hated it. Pout a Leupold scope on already so I added the medium loading gate from Precision, thumb extension, new trigger that takes out all the slop. Has the wide trigger and it's down to about 2 in.lb on the pull. Accurate as heck and I love to shoot it but holding off on just dropping a ton of brass in the grass a few times a week because of the times we live in. Just picked up a K series (1953) 39 a with all original and the furniture is almost perfect. Shoots lights out and has a Lyman adjustable sight on it now (have the original that I may put back on if the new scope will allow it. Waiting for ruger to retool the Marlin machinery and start putting out Ruger Quality Marlins. When they get the 45/70 going, I'll pick on up. Glad to be aboard.
