    Marlin 336 in 25-35 caliber?

    In a moment of weakness, I was looking at USRAC/Winchester's website and saw the 25-35 Hunter model 1894. Looks really nice. Choice of octagon or round barrel. I did a search and found some decent reviews on the rifle. Its tempting.....

    I have always liked the looks of the 25-35 caliber and think that if Marlin put one out in a 336, I'd have to have one.

    Anyone else interested?

    25-35

    Dale Storey of Casper, Wyoming can make one up for you. Fairly simple for a smith to rechamber and rebarrel a 336. I'd suggest having it built in 25-35 Ackley Improved for longer case life and higher velocities.

    Marlin 336 in 25-35 caliber?

    I have my eyes open for a 336A that needs a little TLC and a new barrel. When found, it will be rebarreled to .25-36 Marlin. Then, .25-35 WCF or .25-36 Marlin ammo can be fired in it. The chamber reamer would be available for rent.

    If Marlin were to offer a new rifle, I hope it would be a 336 CB with 1/2 magazine, 1/2 octagon 1/2 round 24" barrel in .25-36 Marlin, with pistol-grip, shotgun buttstock and full checkering. Perhaps Davidson's could get the ball rolling on this one?

    Marlin 336 in 25-35 caliber?

    I had to break down and get a Winnie in the same this year. Sitting at my brothers range yesterday popping clays at 200 yards was rather easy with a 3-9X scope. I have considered improving it, but having too much fun with it as it is. Hitting with it is almost too easy. I don't believe that Marlin ever produced a 25-35, so you could be in for a long wait unless you make one yourself. Marlin did make a 25-36 which at the time had somewhat inferior ballistics. The guns can actually shoot either one.

    I shoot the 86gr. Rem. bullet with Rel 10 and get just over 2700fps. Beats my Hornet, and does what I need.

    Marlin 336 in 25-35 caliber?

    I waited for a long time hoping Marlin would make a 25-35 and last year I quit waiting and had a 336 rebarreled. I wish I wouldn't have waited so long! I'm having a great time with it, fun caliber.

    WOW!

    That's an awsome looking rifle 94CL218!

    Do tell us more. Who did the work, what barrel is it, is that the original wood, etc.

    Thanks.

    Marlin 336 in 25-35 caliber?

    Guys, I think the only way to get Marlin to make a 25-35 is to first buy a Winchester in the same caliber. In case you hadn't noticed, Marlin is now a major Me-To player. Find a caliber someone else has had luck with, and they are on the band wagon. Help me out! They are great fun... :lol: Incidentally, the Winchester is second rate to the Marlin, but makes a great truck gun, and is VERY accurate to boot. Shooting one wiht the 86gr. bullet is like shooting a 22 Hornet. Lower report and does incredible damage to varmints. I would have some reservation about going after a big buck from around here, though.

    Marlin 336 in 25-35 caliber?

    I had Regan Nonneman ( www.leveractions.com ) do the rebarrel, he used a Douglas blank. I started with a 30AS . The stock work I did myself with wood from Great American Gunstocks. It shoots the 86gr. Rem.'s great also, I got one chuck with it this year and I think I'm going to head out west to shoot a few P-dogs with it pretty soon.
