    Four generations of the "Parks family" have killed deer with that rifle. I'll have to take some better photos.

    Can I join this club? I just picked up my 336A from Dicks Sporting Goods. This is my third Marlin. I now have a 39A, 1984C, and now this 336A.


    Cant wait to shoot it.

    Good start on the collection. Now you need to find a Levergun silhouette match and tip over some steel critters with all of em. You'll have to learn to shoot with a grin on your face but that is a good problem...

    00 336W Need to figure out if I'm going to change this one up or leave it in the safe for "safe keeping"

    Now I'm playing the waiting game on a Marlin 1895G NIB comming from a guy in AL. Might scout scope that one as well. But I'm leaning towards some peep sights.

    Micro, that's one fine rifle. Glad to have an ancestor in the club.

    Demon and Daniel, welcome in. We like members with multiple Marlins.

    Members with multiple Marlins. Acronym is mmm, like the sound one makes when one owns multiple Marlins. :D

    kel-tec 9mm
    marlin 22 mag
    colt frontier 22 revolver

    Ammo Question

    Anybody have a preference on what is the best kind of ammo to buy? Or where to buy in bulk at a reasonable price.

    Would appreciate it.

    Good to see the activity here.
    Welcome to JMuir, Birdmang & Weet.
    Welcome back, Lone.

    I'm caught up in a vortex of busy at work this week and next,
    so my participation will be near nil; may get some time after work or weekend.

    There's a lot of capable, informed people around though; you'll get some answers to questions.

    JMuir...

    I use Remington cor-lokt in mine with great results... I also reload my own also using either Speer or Sierra pills (150 & 170 grainers)... both also work great...

    OK y'all... silly question... I have a Marlin 336C pre-cross bolt safety model... How much more sought after are these than the crossbolt safety variants??? Mine is a 30-30 Win

    to the question regarding ammo... the only thing specifically mine doesn't like is 170 grain... doesn't keep groups that consistent.

    Any non crossbolt safety model should be sent to someone qualified to handle them. I just so happen to have received my NRA qualification in pre-crossbolt safety Marlin handing.

    send it on over and I'll be sure it gets a good home.

    It isn't that the precrossbolt safety(pre 1984 i think) is more sought after and draws more money. Some claim that the safety can be bumped during handling and leave you with the second loudest noise a gun can make. Click when it should have gone bang.

    Three ways to avoid this. CBS delete kit, rubber O ring, or just leave it alone.

    Hi Mo, Since you are online , I have a quick question. Just bought a 336A and I find that the trigger moves freely front to back. It doesn't flop around but I can easily move it front back. Is this normal?
