    If memory serves me correct the saddle rings were used for one pt slings, and the stirrup had a notch for the tip of the barrel so it wouldn't flail. If you look around there is a guy that sells them just for this purpose.

    Thanks for the compliments nemotocyst. My skinner should be in the mail box this evening, it will be my first. I wanted to try a few of the big names but think the skinners look the best! I just like irons.

    Not to contradict you but I believe saddle rings were to attach a lanyard to your saddle so you don't lose your rifle off your horse,I don't think they were tinning one point slings back in the 1800's.

    If it makes you feel any better I want to put a one point sling on my Marlin 336-44 that I have a rail on with a eotech on.

    It seems like it could work, considering most people use revolvers with lever actions in Cowboy shooting or just in everyday use. You can mount the single point around the wrist of the pistol grip.

    CaliCoastie: I wasn't referring to a 'tactical sling,' a one point sling is pretty similar to a lanyard in my humble opinion :) This is what google turned up quickly, as I'm not on my home PC with the bookmarks saved:

    The cavalryman's shoulder sling had a clip, much like that on some dog leashes, that snapped into the sling ring (the proper term) on the carbine. When mounted, the trooper inserted the barrel of his weapon into a leather socket that was attached to his saddle.


    This was the type of sling I was referring, I can't find the maker off hand: http://www.leverguns.com/articles/Trapper.html

    Agreed. Especially for levers.

    I believe that was so they didn't lose their rifle when on horseback....while reloading or whatever..........but it just maybe would work for walking around too. Looks to be pretty heavy tho....

    I've read a lot of opinions on the matter - I'll leave it at that :) The nylon one I posted earlier would probably be more practical if one were to attempt it. Had a nice package in the mail today!

    Marlin 336

    I have a 336 in 30-30.
    Nice little rifle. I bought it used in the mid 80's for $75. The gun was only shot a few times but was mounted with an older Bushnell 4 power scope.

    The trigger is brass colored.

    I like this rifle a lot.

    I'm sure you do. You got the best rifle ever for $75. What's not to like?

    Marlin 336

    I thought my 336 was a C model (not sure when or how I thought this). I guess it could be a W.

    Without having read through this whole thread, it seems like I was right but only after reading a few posts here.

    006-4.jpg

    I read somewhere that the brass colored trigger meant it was a model W.

    I'll get on a Marlin website to clarify date of Mfg and correct model #

    I was going to give my kiddo this rifle but might just get him his own. :)

    That's a Marlin 336 RC model, the predecessor to the current C model. CS was in between (S for safety).

    Marlin problems

    Hello.... I've been wanting a Marlin 336 or 1985gs and am getting scared off by what I'm hearing about Marlin (Remlins). I went to two local gun shops and a gunshot over the weekend and all told me to avoid them at all costs. Also, I just got off the phone with Marlin service just to check them out and they confirmed that they have had problems since the plant move especially with the 336. Don't know if I should wait, find an older gun or buy a Henry. Any thoughts?

    I haven't shot one of the new Marlingtons, but I've handled a few, and the action has been rough on every one. I'd say look around until you find a deal on a pre-Rem Marlin, since fair prices can still be had. I don't know a thing about the Henrys, although some folks seem to love them.

    dakOta,

    Thank you sir. I didn't know there was an RC model.
    I did start to do a bit of research and read some info on the bulls eye stock imbed.
    I also found out my rifle was made in 76.

    I have quite a few hundred rounds of brass from my BIL before he got into .357 lever guns. Now I have to get bullets.

    what do you think of this oil and what is its specific purpose?
    I understand that if you have a speck of rust, this and bronze wool will remove the rust without significant damage to the finish other than what the rust has already done
    thanksin advance

    A 336 r.c. was my first rifle (given to me from my grandpa) and the rifle I shot my first few deer with. I believe it was made in 1948 and is still in 90-95% all original condition! It'll be the first rifle my son uses too, but thats still at least 11 years away lol.

    Kroil is some very fine "stuff".....primary use is for penetrating rust cuz it can slip into tiny micro places, IE penetrate.... to get under it and loosen it so it just may be what you need for the job.

    There is also a metal "sponge" product (steel wool like) that is supposed to remove rust from gun bluing without damage to the bluing. Try this link http://www.urbanriflesupply.com/rust removal.html

    Question: Anyone put a different butt plate on their 336 to adjust length of pull and height? If I put my 336 to my shoulder where it's comfortable for my eye, only about 20% of the butt plate is in my shoulder; the rest is above my shoulder. I could also use an extra inch or so of LOP.

    I have long arms (36"), a long neck, and I'm 6'2", so while the 336 is built for "normal", I don't think I am.

    Any recommendations? I see the Morgan adjustable mentioned everywhere, but is that my only option? Anyone put a Morgan on, or found any other solution?
