    First Marlin, meet Loraine

    I caught Marlinitis after handling a beat-up, ugly 39a in the LGS last December. I had never had a lever gun before and that one sparked a flame. A week later I found a 1971 39a for sale at a good price and bought it without hesitation. In an excited text to a buddy, somehow the auto correct called the rifle Loraine. Three weeks ago, I found a nice 1979 336 in 35rem and could not resist purchasing it. Last week a 1980 336 in 30/30 found its way to layaway.

    Anyway, I’ve got a list made of other models that I’m keeping an eye out for. Gotta let the wallet rest for a while.

    Meet Loraine and a couple of her friends:

    Very nice rifle! And dinner on the table. Can't beat that combination. Sounds like you're getting quite a collection. Once the lever bug bites, the only cure is to obtain more. Welcome to the club!

    That is one sexy 39! I've been looking at a few of them but can't find one in any sort of very good condition without selling out $800+
