    Great rifle, I have one of it's brothers. I know the feeling & you will like the rifle even more as you shoot it more. Put a peep on it & it is about as accurate as a scope!
    Fortunately, I have a very loving wife that when I say that I'd really like to have that rifle, says, "Buy it Darlin!".
    Bought me three nice Marlins & a Black Hawk this year!

    Yes, I have got a big case of the Marlinitus also that some on here warned me about!

    I tell my wife that everyone I buy are hard to find, and I have to buy them when they come up for sale. Everytime I tell her that, she says.... that’s what you say about all of them.

    As far as I am concerned those were the best Marlins ever made. I had one, and let my daughter shoot her first deer with it. I wanted to sue it so I bought her a 300 Savage bolt rifle which she proceeded to shoot more deer with. HOWEVER, her and her mother gave me a whole ration of grief because I took it back. I told her I never gave it to her but let her use it to see if she even wanted to deer hunt. Long story short, to make them be quiet I gave her the rifle so she would have it with no hassle on any estate settlements. Miss that rifle. I have its twin in 38-55 and sometimes use it but I liked the 30-30 better. It had Ballard style rifling and shot cast beautifully.

    Really a nice rifle to do that with but...... On the other hand it is really a nice rifle - and would still be nice as a 38-55. I just looked until I found one in 38-55 and bought it. I would guess you could sell it and have enough to by a 38-55 especially if you considered the 250.00 you would have to add to get the 30-30 rebored. Plus there is the resale value hit should your heirs want to sell the rifle once they put you in the ground....
