Couldn't warm to Encore. Got a 336 35 Remington


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


1979 production, very lightly used. Took her out after a quick cleaning, and with open sights, kept 3 rounders at 50 under an inch. Off to an excellent start. Was surprised by the recoil though. Heavier than my Savage 170B with the same load. Is ok though. We gonna have a good time!

Great rifle, Congrats! Pre HBS and the large, flat hammer spur. I love the four 1980 Marlins I own.

A Marlin made in the 70s is a keeper. Sounds like yours is.
Congratulations on a good find!

The fit and finish on this one is very fine, even for others I have owned from the same period. She doesn't copper foul even though the tops of the lands bear more than a passing resemblance to a file. It will smooth after awhile...
I mounted a spare Leupold VX1 3x9 and am eager to see how she groups at 100.
Her fired cases are in very fine shape. Primers flush and no bulges. Except on the sharpest edges of the upper receiver, her blueing is 100%. No gold wore off the trigger either. Not much crud internally also points to little use. Thank you to whoever didn't use her much. I will be fixing that presently...

Congrats on a great find. They are very rare around here. Anyone who has one keeps it.

The 35 Remington is one of my favorite hunting rounds. In fact, I just go through cleaning my 1972 model 336 in 35 Remington. I am planning on taking a couple of 35's black bear hunting this fall.
