No sir - the link I showed you was the Model 336SS in 30-30 with a 20 inch barrel.

Marlin does not have a 16 in. barreled model like the Winchester Trapper. The closest thing would be the 1894C in .357 with an 18.5 inch barrel. Their models 1894 and 1894SS are chambered in .44 mag and have 20 inch barrels. This extra barrel length buys you an extra round in the slightly longer tube magazine.

Hope this helps.

For a picture of the model 1894SS check this thread.

actually, if u wanted a 30-30 thats similar to the trapper, marlin makes the 336 youth model that has 16.5 barrel so thats probably closer than the 1894 model,
and in my opinion, marlins are better than winchesters

MIK911 is absolutely correct. I was not aware of that. So there you go, if you want 30-30 go with the 336Y and if you want .357 or .44, go with a 1894.

It's kind of funny how over the years it still holds true that when someone starts talking about there Winchester 94 30-30 someone just has to pop in and tell everyone that his Marlin is better Even if it isn't true and it's just a matter of preference. A winchester can be made to operate like it's the smoothest lever gun on the planet with about 45 minutes stoning work.
The Marlin is heavy and clunky in the saddle or on the back. The Marlin looks better with a scope but that's alright, no scope needed on a Winchester Mike

Would you care to pm me or simply post information on this? My .30-30 could use some help.

Thanks

Sent you this link but will post it here anyway and as stated I will find you one that goes even further in smoothing the action. Hope I can find it as these explain it better than I can. Mike

I'm sure by now you get the idea and please believe me when I say it looks more complicated than it really is. It really takes me less than 5 minutes to strip it down but the first time may take you 10-15. Once it's down just smooth every edge you can feel. Take your time and use a very light file where needed and finish up with 600 paper. Take 4 curls off the springs as suggested in the articles. It makes life much easier and smoother when loading and cocking the hammer.
Some guys have guts enough to take apart the bolt and smooth it up too but not me! I'll leave that to the experts. Hope this helps, Mike

Although I hate Marlins, I don't deny that they're a good, solid gun. Plus, their use in Cowboy shooting competitions has fostered the growth of a pretty good size industry manufacturing parts and modifications for them. You can get them short stroked, accurised, and otherwise pimped out for a relatively low price.
