    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...

    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...

    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...

    Recently I was looking at some Marlin lever action rifles in 444 and the price was not bad. An acquaintance who is gun smith told me to pass. I asked why. He said there are few bullets available for the 444 (I don't as yet reload) so you have to use the bullets made for the .44 handgun. He said...
