    Smile 336, 35 Rem Cal.

    Hey Anybody out there know what the advantages of the 336 in 35 Cal, has over 30-30, as far as recoil feel?

    Recoil? What recoil. Both my 30-30 and 35 Rem are easy shooters. Slight nudge is what I would call it. If I had to give up one I would give up the 30-30 as my 35 Rem is much more accurate with a larger bullet and better ballistics than the 30-30.

    JDP,

    Before you go further be sure to go to the Marlin Rant area of this forum to learn all about the new Marlins (Remlins) being made now. You could get a good one, I did in 45-70 or your could get one that requires a lot of work like my 45 Rem and 30-30. The best situation would be to find a 35 Rem with a JM stamp (real Marlin) that is not too beat up. I don't know where you are so I would recommend prowling on www.gunbroker.com for a while to learn pricing of a real JM gun. You can learn how to tell if it is a JM gun by reading the posts in the Marlin Rant section. Also, if you find a gun and don't know post the first 2 digits of the serial number here and you can get some quick answers.

    As for cleaning kits I buy pieces, not kits. All the kits I have bought over the years are not that great. Let's get you the right gun first then we can get the cleaning part down as well. I am too tired tonight to walk down and look at the brands of rods, brushes, stuff I use. Send me a PM and I will be happy to detail all that for you tomorrow.

    For example. Here is one on Gunbroker that appears to be a real JM NIB (new in the box). If you like this look and style I would send the seller a message and ask them what the first 2 digits of the serial number are:

    MARLIN 336XLR 24" LAM SS 35 REM NIB 20 ship : Lever Action Rifles at GunBroker.com

    Then post up the SN digits here and you will get a quick answer about when it was built and if it is a real Marlin or Remlin.

    You need to read the .35 Rem and .30-30 advantage threads, in their entirety

    jdp, check the 7th thread down in this section, that is the Rant section, it expalins lots of things. If you decide to disassemble your Marlin Please get a set of gunsmith screwdrivers. Gunsmith's driver will help prevent buggered up screw heads and gouged blueing. Take care, John.
    Just keep on keeping on.

    There are new Marlin's, and them that looks like new. I have a set in .35/.30-30 that look very much like NIB. I bought them over the last three years for a total of $515. They were both made in the early '80's and were safe queens.

    Cleaning kits are a fast way to get set up, but a good coated rod, and a selection of jags and brushes for your caliber cost the same, and are usually of much better quality.

    The advantage with the .35 is the bigger bullet, the advantage with the .30-30 is a flatter trajectory. .30-30 ammo is far less expensive, and much easier to find. The real advantages of either are more in the realm of theory than reality. If you see either on a rack, in good condition at a good price, it immediately moves to "Best" category.

    I bought a new 336c last fall for $439. 30-30 would have been $10-20 less, as I recall.
