    Cool Hello! New Marlin owner from Michigan

    Hello from Michigan, everyone! I just bought my first Marlin ever, and I'm really excited to get it. It'll assume the role of being my main deer/medium game rifle. The rifle in question is a Marlin 336 XLR in 30-30 Winchester. It's a JM stamped model made in 2006. The original owner had only put 10 rounds through the rifle ever. I got it for $800 which seems like it's a good deal for a pre-Remington, JM stamped XLR with an insanely low round count.

    I've only ever owned Winchester or Browning (BLR) lever guns before. I was at my LGS and they had a brand new 1895 SBL, and I honestly really liked it a lot. After fondling it I had to get a Marlin, but I didn't want a 45-70 since I already have a Winchester 1886 and don't like having multiple guns in the same caliber that shoot more expensive rounds. I loved the stainless, so I was drawn to the XLR since I don't have a 30-30 anymore. I've heard newer Marlins are getting better, but I wanted to try and get a JM stamped model so I started looking around for one with a low round count that wasn't ridiculously expensive since low round count JMs seem to be pricey. Ended up finding the one mentioned above, and it's shipping Monday so I should have it by the end of next week.

    In the meantime I have a Vortex Viper HS 2.5-10 scope, and a XS rail/ghost ring sight to mount on it.

    Thank you! I'm in Southeastern MI, about halfway between Detroit and the Michigan-Ohio border.

    ...and thank you for the welcome everyone else who has commented so far!
