    Marlin 30 AS

    I am looking at a Marlin 30As on the web, looks good, Williams 5d aperature sight. I would like to know if there are any concerns about this rifle model, is it as accurate as any other Marlin. The owner lives near me so I will be able see it before putting down cash and no shipping. $300.00
    I would appreciate your opinion.
    Thanks Bill

    Re: Marlin 30 AS

    I would think that it is gonna be just as accurate as any of the other ones but when you get it buy you a box of the different grain bullets to see which one it shoots the best buy you a box of 150's and 170's.Some like the heavier grain some like the lighter grain it just depends on what your rifle is gonna like.When you get it take it to the range shoot it and let us know how it goes!!!

    Re: Marlin 30 AS

    I'll let someone else comment on the price. The Marlin market seems to vary a bit from place to place. As for the model, I own a number of Marlin 336's (which is what the 30AS is). The 30AS was an "economy" version of the 336, using birch stock material, an end cap and one barrel band. As it happens, my 30AS is the most accurate Marlin in my safe. Perhaps it has something to do with having only one barrel band. At any rate, I have the rifle set up with a low, fixed power scope. It's been my "go to" rig for deer season for the past couple years. While I don't use the Leverevolution ammo in this rig, the first three I put through the rifle measured 7/8" center to center off the bench @ 100 yards. It does nearly as well with traditional flat point loads. I'm sure you'll hear from other 30AS owners.

    Re: Marlin 30 AS

    I had a model 30AS and it shot just as well as any 336 I've ever shot. Like PeterCartwright mentioned, a 30AS is a 336, just made with birch instead of walnut.

    Re: Marlin 30 AS

    The 30AS is a 336 with no sling swivel studs and lower cost wood and sights.

    I purchased mine over the 336 as the smooth stock and carbine sight without a ramp and hood made it look cleaner, more of what I thought a lever rifle should look like.

    Re: Marlin 30 AS

    I would also like to add a sling, since the 30AS has a cap on the forend, is there a cap with a sling stud ?
    Thanks Bill

    Re: Marlin 30 AS

    My 30as shoots better than my 336. I can shoot better with a reciver sight with the 30as front sight without the ramp.

    this is the cap your talking about http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct...tNumber=185691
