Smile hawkguys narcissistic let's see those levers gallery thread

hey all!

i haven't posted much on the lever action board, but i own a marlin 336ss in 30-30. i love the looks, size, weight, action...basically everything about this gun. if i could only keep one gun, i'm thinking this one is the one!

i noticed there isn't a permanent gallery for levers on this board, so i thought i'd start a thread with a pic of my marlin (bone stock, i just can't bring myself to do anything to it). i also threw in a little lone star representin'

please post some pics of your levers (feel free to be creative in whatever manner)...i would love to see them! thanks!

Here are a few of mine, starting with a pair of 1895 LTD III One of One Thousand with 18' full octagon barrels, an STP LTD Edition of 501 (I have three) with 16" barrel and a "Micro" STB with 16" barrel. My 18" LTD Edition STBL is being used as a host for a custom build having a 16" full octagon barrel, amongst other touches, installed. All are in 45/70 caliber.

I added all the extra goodies to one of my 16" STP's and ended up with a 2" shorter version of an SBL.
This one is a Remlin build, my other two STP's are true Marlins.

Thumbs up 1981 Winchester '94

This is a 1981 Winchester '94 30-30 that I picked up last summer at a yard sale! It was missing some parts and had hung for years as a decoration in someone's "Western Room." My gunsmith got it up and running so it's wound up being a pretty good deal. The metal is a little worse for wear, but I'm not going to do anything about it. But I do love the beautiful old Walnut stock!

Now that's what it's all about, rescued from a life of being a boring wall hanger to being a story teller! Your rifle has begun a new journey thanks to you. Way to go!

Marlin 338 MX with the purty furniture:




Marlin 1894P shorty in 44 Mag:



Marlin 1894 CB LTD with the octagon barrel and a Smithy 686-6 seven shot in 357 Mag:



There are others including a plain jane 1894 CB in 357 Mag, a couple of 336s in 30/30 of course and a 336 in 35 Remington along with an 1895 LTD in 45/70 and one or two others. I still want more. Problem is that after awhile you have more than you can shoot often enough to keep them slick.

Thank you for the kind words! Unfortunately, this thread is reminding me of the Marline 336 that I let get away many moon ago. It was a wonderful gun!

how do you identify this as "the texan"? this looks identical to my Marlin 30-30 and the age sounds just about right.

It has a T at the end of the 336 signifying it as a Texan model.
Some did not have a T just like some of the SC's didn't have that mark either, but if it has a straight grip stock instead of the sporter "SC" type stock, a straight lever instead of the curved one, double barrel band one at the front and one on the forearm with either a 16.5 "5 shot" or 20" "6 shot" barrel, you have a Texan.
Some of these also came with a saddle ring on the left side of the receiver, but not all.
If I remember right, the Texan was introduced around 1964 and discontinued around 1982, but someone with better info can correct me on that!
