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!

God bless our troops! Thanks to all that serve or have served!
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.
My 1999 336CB looks just like yours only in 38-55. Great rifles!
I've got one, SERIOUSLY!! considering sending it to JES and having him punch it out to 38-55.
