    336Y Spikehorn

    I am intrigued by the 336Y for various reasons, mainly, its compactness. Can anyone throw some numbers at me in regards to accuracy, IE: grouping at 50 to 100 yards, handload preferences, factory ammo, etc. Also, what is a good price for one of these? I have seen some outstanding deals on gunbroker.com. I did a 'buy it now' on my new Model 410 and got it for $363.00. Thanks!

    Accuracy will be probably as good as any other Marlin.. All firearms are different.

    In the long run, I have faith in the Marlin product and no doubt that the Spikehorn will perform admirably. I am seeking comments and criticism, along with actual experiences, in an effort to further enhance my knowledge before making a purchase.

    Well for me there lenght of pull is way to small. the full size 336 is tight for me.. I could use about 2 more inches on the stock to make it perfect.. If it fits you and you like it go for it

    My drilling must have been made for a small person, as it has the same length of pull as the 336Y. It works well for me, even though it doesn't 'fit' when checked the old fashioned way. Food for thought.

    336Y Spikehorn

    I bought one back in the summer for my exwife. Since she won't be using it I took the stock off my 1894FG and put it on the Y . It shoots very well with cast bullets and surprisingly well with factory loaded Winchester 150 grain Silvertips. I haven't tried any other jacketed bullets in it so far, but I'm very optimistic

    336Y Spikehorn

    I am looking forward to purchasing a Spikehorn as soon as I sell my Ruger 77/44. If I had done my homework ahead of time, I would not have bought the Ruger. It is a great little rifle and plenty enough for the whitetails where I hunt, but the 7 inch groups (off a sandbag rest) at 50 yards were unacceptable. Factory loads or handloads produced the same results.

    Roundsworth, I read in some of Jeff Coopers writings that when he was still active at gunsite he was recomending butstocks as short as 12.5" for fast defensive shooting. To me, the spikehorn feels to short. I have handeled some other types of rifles that felt good with that short of a stock. I would handle one for yourself, and shoot one if possible. Regards, Byron
