Well, I recieved my Marlin 336 LTD 35 Reminton today. First off this is my 1st Lever gun and I am VERY impressed by it. It handles and looks great with the straight stock and 18 1/2 inch barrel. I could do without the porting on this caliber, but that's a small gripe. I am hoping to get it out to the range this weekend with some Remington factory 200 gr loads to see how it will do. I am going to put one of my 3x9 scopes on it for testing, but after that I don't know. The scope and also my tasco red dot sight set high enough up that you need to raise your head up some to use them. I'll probably go with some type of aperture sight after I find the handloads that it likes. I wish someone made a rear sight like on the old Enfield N0.4MK1. That way you have the large (ghost ring) aperture sight for close range and a flip up click adjustable aperture for longer range shooting/plinking. Hay, here's a project for you engineers and machinests out there. Design a low profile mount that you can install an Enfield sight in Figure about ฟ for a new sight and $?? for the mount and you have the best of both a tang and a ghost ring (Ashley)sight. Think about it ;}. Well, I have to go for now. Hopefully this Florida weather will cooperate and let me get out this weekend. James D.
