  1. A New Guy

    General Discussion
    Hey everybody. I'm the new guy. Just recently got into using my 2nd amendment rights by way of survivalist and camping/hiking hobbies. I own a Springfield .45ACP "Micro-Compact" and just purchased a Marlin 336 in .35. I've never killed anything bigger than a bug in my life, but as I would like...
  2. Marlin 336 vs 94 (357 mag) for FIRST EVER gun

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    Hello everyone! After doing extensive research online I was sure I wanted to get a 336 30.30. But upon reflection I have started to wonder if this is the best idea for me given Ive never even shot a gun before.... My hesitation stems from the price of ammo and not any other reason (I love lever...
  3. MArlin Model 336 in 35 Rem.

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    Hey fellow shooters and hunters. I just traded for a Marlin model 336 in 35 Rem. That was made in 1975. It's in pristine shape,I'd say probably about 98% or better. Wood and blueing is absolutely perfect. I had one around the same time oh so 37 years ago,and regretted the day that I sold it! So...

  5. old marlins

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    I have a couple of older marlin rifles that I need some info on. Both are 30.30 win. One is 336rc #E 39xxx.It is very good condition--I got my first buck with it. It has a rubber recoil pad that I don't think is original. I'm thinking about trading it for a carry pistol. What is the approx...
  6. 35 remington ammo

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    So I'm considering purchasing a 336 in either 30-30 or 35 Remington. I'm not an avid big game hunter or anything but I would like to have a medium power rifle for self defense purposes to go along with my Glock 23. I know 30-30 ammo is EVERYWHERE, but my question is whether or not 35 Remington...
  7. 336 wont cycle reloads

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    Bought a new 336 about a month ago, didn't have dies, etc yet so bought some factory Win ammo. Hun shot and cycled fine. Full length sized and trimmed the fired brass. Seated two bullets in empty brass, no primers or powder. The first chambered fine, the second didn't slide back...
  8. Brand new, never shot, wont cycle

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    I bought a brand new Marlin 336W last night and about two out of every ten cycles it locks up about 3/4 of an inch from closed and won't move either way until it is hit hard with the heel of a palm. It works beautifully the other eight times, but it seems like once this starts, it contines to...

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    Just bought a new 336W. Would like to see how accuratre we can make this rifle. Will be handloading, with the obvious variety of bullet and powder options. Anything else to wring the most out of this gun?
  10. Marlin 336: what's a realistic used price?

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    I came across several used Marlin 336 lever guns today and saw that they varied in price ranging from $300-$400, however, since I haven't looked at used Marlins i'm not sure if it's considered fair. I know pricing is dependent on many factors such as condition, model, etc., but is there a...

  12. Marlin 336 in 356 and Remington CL-PP bullets ?

    Leverguns and Their Cartridges (General)
    Thinking of getting a Marlin 336 in 356 as a(nother) deer rifle. Was wondering how accurate the Micro Grove rifling is with cup & core bullets ? I shoot 200gr Remington CL-PP bullets in my Ruger M77 358 and wanted to use the same in the M336 in 356. My other option would be a 356 in a Winny...
  13. Jamming .35 rem 336

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    Hi, I have just bought a second hand .35 rem 336 which jams with the lever full open. I have pulled it to bits and studied it. It looks like the carrier is too long so when a round is on the carrier the next one sticks out of the mag by about 0.070" and locks the carrier down. I wonder if...
  14. Marlin 336 30-30 trigger question

    Marlin 336 Lever Guns
    I just bought a used Marlin 336 today and am curious about it's trigger. I've been told "it's just the nature of the beast" but just want to get a little more insight, especially since this forum has a section dedicated to lever guns. The trigger has a little play in it with the action open...
