  2. 336 30-30 cartridges stuck on carrier

    I just bought a nice looking 336C in 30-30 used with Skinner rear sight installed (SN of the rifle indicates a 2018 manufacture date). I have not gotten a chance to shoot it yet but I have been trying to cycle it with 4 "A-Zoom 30-30 snap caps" unsuccessfully. My problem appears to be that...

  4. New to me Winchester 94 30-30

    Winchester & Team Winchester
    I bought a 307 Winchester chambered Marlin barrel from a forum member I'm going to put on my Marlin 336W. I didn't like the thought of not having a 30-30 and have been looking around thinking I'd probably get another Marlin. Then I remembered that my buddy I was going to share a gun show table...

    On our site we offer both brass and stainless steel followers and people often want to know which is better. The truth is that it is really a matter of personal preference.

    For accuracy afficionados and fans of Cooper’s scout concept, RPP now offers its new Barrel Anchored Scout (BAS) rail. As always, Ranger Point’s goal was to push the state of the art forward. In this case, that meant literally pushing the whole rail forward. Other scout rails can rob your...

  9. Hello from the NC Foothills

    Welcome New Members
    Hello from the NC Foothills. I decided this year I'm gonna hunt with a 30-30 lever action. So I picked up 2 used Marlin 30as rifles, both good deals. They are a 1988 and 1989 model. One for hunting and one for plinking. Also once the lever gun bug bites, it's hard to shake lol.:biggrin::biggrin:
  10. Loading Leverevolution for the 30-30 160g ftx

    Hi. I'm new here. I had a few questions and ideas about the lever evolution 160g ftx for the 30-30s. The 30-30 rcbs dies were designed for a round or flat nose bullet. When i load the leverevolutions it leaves a ring around the projectile approximately 9mm down from the tip. So this is...
  11. Super clean 1936 in 30-30

    Model 36 & Other Square Bolt Levers
    This is the rifle that inspired me to join this forum. I have a few other Marlins, but this is definitely my oldest. I have read on some forums that a B serial number prefix indicates 1941 production, but other information suggests that it would be 1936-37. I would like to learn as much as...
  12. Shoot Through Scope Rings

    Does anyone have a scope mounted with Shoot Through Scope Rings that work well? I recently bought my first brand new to me 1979 Marlin 336 30-30. This is going to be my brush and walking gun for white tail. What I want is to be able to utilize the scope for long shots. But use the See...

  15. Marlin Safety Model 1893 MISSING SCREW

    Hello folks, I had a family member give me his model 1893 cambered in 30-30 (produced in 1900) with the square bolt to help get it into a safe shooting condition.

  17. Ballard Rifling vs Microgroove

    Marlin started using Microgroove rifling in the early 50's and before that they used Ballard rifling. As I understand the Microgroove was cheaper and easier to manufacture, plus it made the rifles more accurate. Ballard rifling featured fewer grooves but they were more deeply cut into the...

    Hey fellow Marlin owners...I have a 1957 336 3030 I picked up and need to replace came with fiber optic sights but would like original type sights. Anyone know where I could find out what it had originally and where to buy them? Also, looking to add scope for no more more than 100...
  19. Best 30-30 ammo?

    I've been using 170 gr Remington Core-Lokt. I only put about 200 rounds through the rifle since I've only had it a little while and there's no close range in Brooklyn, but it shoots as consistent as I let it. I noticed it leaves a decent bit of residue in the barrel, though, which I don't love...

    Hey y'all! New here and I just bought my first Marlin, the 336W 30-30 Win. I'm gonna be using it for hunting deer, more specifically white tail and was wondering what kind of scope I should get as well as a mount for it. Also looking at getting a sling so any info on that would be great!
