    A couple of months ago I found a Marlin 336 that had been made in 1976 at a local gun store. The sights are pretty much useless in low light. So I thought about replacing them with something a little more modern. The question I keep asking myself, should I mess with a rifle that was made in...

    How is the quality of the newer marlin 336 compared to the older rifles? A local pawn shop had an older Marlin 336 in stock. Serial put it at a 1976 production. In all honesty, I have no experience with new Marlin 336 lever action rifles. My son has one that was bought for him around 2002...

    Here in these parts, a man without a pick-up truck is considered pretty much poorly dressed. And the older the pickup, the better, although 4 wheel drive is much desired. And if a body has a pickup, well then, he needs a truck gun, a gun he can use to shoot the occasional varmint, or to...

    Friday evening my kids and I talked about if we wanted to go hunting Saturday morning and Saturday evening, or just Saturday evening. The agreement was made to go just Saturday evening - in part because we had a birthday party to go to at noon. Saturday morning rolls around, we sleep a little...

    Hi everyone and thanks in advance for any suggestions or information! I have a Marlin 336W and was thinking of stocking up on spares, lest it ever be pressed into service as a reserve SHTF piece. So, anyway what spares should I order up? Firing pin, extractor, ejector? Which springs/screws...

    This is a copy of a thread I started on SurvivalistBoards.com about the modifications I made to my 336.... I will be adding the rest of the pictures and info over the next few weeks. First a little info on the rifle. It's a Marlin 336W in 30.30 that I bought in 02' I have made several...

    My sons Marlin 336 30-30 started having some problems this weekend - the action is easy for a couple of cycles, and then its really hard. The action is so hard to work, that it feels like something is going to break. We were shooting factory loaded Remington 150 grain core-lokt. The first 2...

    My daughter is about ready for her first deer rifle, but I'am not quite sure which direction I should go. All of my other kids have a Marlin 336 in 30-30. For here in East Texas most of our shots are no more then 100 yards, and she will not want anything with recoil. With these east Texas...

    It was the last weekend of regular deer season, saturday night. A long time member of the deer lease drives up to the camp, and backs his truck up to the scales. That is usually a sure sign that there is a deer in the back of the truck. They get the doe weighed and are stringing it up to skin...

    I have always hated the trigger on my Marlin 336. I saw a replacement trigger by Wild West Guns at Brownells. It's $90. Anyone had any experience with this item?

    Recently bought a 336 in 30-30. I made a mistake when reassembling it, I pushed the bolt all the way forward, not leaving the 1" the manual states. Problem is, the bolt seams to be locked forward. How do you free the bolt, so I can side it back an inch and re-attach the lever. Thanks.

    Found me a decent deal at a pawn shop during lunch. There was a "Marlin 336" for 250 in the middle of 5 others on the rack. I noticed it had a cracked stock that was loose, but fixable within my expertise. The brand said "Revelation/ Western Auto Supply" and "Marlin Firearms Co, Newhaven, Conn."...

    So I'm mulling over a possible purchase here. Back when I bought my Saiga 7.62x39, it was $324.00 with tax at a dealer. Now I've got offers for over $450. Looking at that, I've been giving thought to selling it and buying one of the two following rifles: Marlin 336 in 30-30. The 30-30 cartridge...

    I have a marlin 336 in 30-30. I bought it used. It wasn't shot much that I can tell. It shoots horrible. I used 170gr federal ammo. Shot 4" groups at best. I know how to shoot; so, it's not me. I did notice that the primer is backing out of the case which indicates headspace problem. Did...

    Hey everyone, I have been reading the posts in this forum for quite sometime and now that I have recently purchased a Marlin 336W I can dive right in with the conversation. Does anyone have this rifle, and if so what was your luck with it? Got it brand new and fell in love with it at first...
