    Nem,

    Been a while since I've seen you around. Hope all is well. I'm pretty busy at work myself, but hoping to get out in the next few weeks to try my latest find - my submission for membership in the fine 336 club. I'm hoping to read from the beginning and learn all I can about this wonderfully balanced, quick handling rifle. It's just a joy to hold. I rank it second only to my M-1 Carbine in it's balance.

    I've been looking around for a nice, well priced one for a while now. Here is my new to me 336RC in 30-30, made in 1957. This one has a Williams rear peep sight, and is in near new condition. Not bad for $350.

    Kyletx, welcome in. We like pics around here. ;)

    Jad! Great to see you, old friend. Indeed, long time no see/read.

    And all the better to see you here in this club (instead of our other favorite co-haunt, the 642 club).

    And wow, dude, you scored! Beautiful! And exactly the right kind of sights for it.

    We look forward to a shooting report.

    Just picked up a 336 LTS! It is by no means a safe queen, but that is the way I like them. The bore and metal are clean.

    I am taking her bear hunting this weekend and will post some pictures of her when I get back.

    Kyletx1911: That young man is wise beyond his years. To improve upon this picture you need only add a whitetail and a big smile.

    Looking forward to his first post here in the 336 club.

    Good to hear from you too. Yes, the sights are excellent. So far, they provide one of the better sight pictures of the rifles I own. I did a simple field strip today (removed the buttstock, lever and bolt) to give it a decent cleaning. It was fairly clean already, the gun really doesn't appear to have been fired much. Reoiled the bolt, hammer and trigger. I also applied a very thin coat of 300 degree F silicone-based automotive grease (I bought a $3 tub of the Supertech brand stuff at Wal-Mart) to the part of the lever that engages the bolt. A small artists brush worked perfectly for this task.

    Result is the the action is even slicker than it was before! A thin film of that automotive grease works very well. Use it sparingly.

    It'll probably be October before I get to shoot it. Until then I'll be fondling it about every day!

    At some point, I will. In fact, this gun makes me want to take up hog hunting. Make some bacon out of those buggers. I'll try it first with some "cheap" stuff I got at Wal-Mart, just to make sure everything works. And once I have enough brass saved up I'll start reloading for it. I love this gun already and I haven't even fired it. Might have to find companion 39 at some point, or perhaps one of the Henry .22s (blasphemy perhaps, sorry :p).

    The 336C was redesignated the 336CS for a few years when Marlin went to the crossbolt safety. They still use the crossbolt safety, but the model has gone back to 336C.

    Just picked this up at gun show yesterday.
    Western auto Revalation 200.
    This one made in 67 with a very nice Walnut stock.
    It looks like new, almost perfect condition.
    This must have been sitting in some old guys safe for the last 45 years to be this pristine.

    Fine rifles, MrDig. Thanks.

    Rally, wow. Beautiful. You be lucky.

    I'm almost afraid to ask what you paid for it.

    I must report with sadness and consternation that I *refused* a NIB 336 today. I'd heard horror stories about REMLINS, but decided to take them with a grain of salt... how common could these problems really be? So I placed an order.

    Today, I went to my LGS to pick it up. It was beautiful! Fit and finish on wood and metal were lovely!

    .... and the rear sight was not dovetailed in level. The whole blamed thing canted about 10° clockwise! Crooked as a carnival shooting booth. Sure, I'd have removed it and installed a rear peep anyway... but if their QC is that shoddy, who knows what else might be wrong with it?

    It's a sad day for me. Looks like I'm hunting with an SKS this season.

    That is a sad story, TexScot.

    Can't say I blame you.

    You should send that post to Remlin, I mean Marlington, I mean ...

    I mean, they're messing with a legend here.
    Time they get their act together and give these rifles the QC respect they deserve.

    In the summer of 2011 gotten a 1895 sbl brand new. Took about $500 to fix it at Grizzly Custom. I spent another $500 slicking up the action. Even then, the front and rear ghost rings were drilled off center. Luckily I adjusted the rear and it shoots straight at 25, 50, and 100 yards so I decided not to take a chance on having Lew weld the old holds and redril. I wrote the CEO of Remington asking them to pay for this work. CEO never responded. I did provide receipts after two months I contacted customer service. They said since I didn't contact the factory first there was nothing they could do. I pointed out sending it back to them wasn't a cpviable option given the well known problems. They wouldn't budget after quite a few emails back and forth. The rifle now works. I'm in it about two grand. I don't plan on buying any new markins or Remington's for quite some time given poor customer service and shoddy workmanship. Used is the way to go.

    Checkout the MarlinOwners.com forums for all the info you will ever need about the 336 models. Another knowledgeable gun sight.

    I have a lot of butt cuff/sling customers on MO and am a member myself. I know this isn't a 336 but it fits in with Marlins and I want to show it off :) it's an 1894 FG I found locally:
