  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. Things I started thinking about during the lock-down

    Welcome New Members
    Hello All, I am up here in Vancouver BC and since COVID-19 started I have had more time to obsess about hunting and fishing while not going anywhere. What is worse is that I am a registered nurse working with the sick patients so I have to be extra careful. Anyway, to cut to the chase, my...
  5. Why the cost difference on new stainless 336 and 1984?

    A new 336ss lists for over $800 new, and a new stainless 1894 lists for over $1,200 on the marlin website... Does anyone know why the 1894 is so much more expensive than the 336? Thanks!
  6. Marlin 336 - Short Button or Full Length Mag Tube?

    Today, we announced two new flyweight mag tube options for Marlin 336 rifles in all calibers. Flyweight aircraft grade aluminum, forearm length shorty button mag tubes and full length magazine tubes. Less weight and better performance. Are you a shorty or a full length mag tube guy? 1. Marlin...

  10. Marlin Followers Offered

    Bear Tooth Mercantile
    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. The two materials produce very similar performance in the application of a magazine follower in a Marlin lever gun. It is...
  11. BAS Scout Rail + light rail for Marlin's with barrel bands

    Ranger Point Precision
    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...
  12. 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:
  13. rust on stainless 336

    I’ve been considering a 336SS for an all-weather hunting rifle and finally found one at a LGS today to inspect. Wood to metal fit was very good for both the stock and forend. The forend was fatter than necessary where it met the receiver, but not a deal breaker. Checkering looked and felt...
  14. NEW: Marlin "Flyweight" Loading Gates

    Ranger Point Precision
    Well gents, I’m in the middle of another hectic R&D push here at RPP. I told you earlier this year in another thread that y’all wouldn’t get much Marlin love this year, because we intended to focus on Steyr handgun parts. I may have misled you. Not intentionally, I just can’t stay away from...
  15. Scope Mounting: to bubba or not to bubba?

    I absolutely refuse to tap into an unmolested waffle top, but I also want a scope as an option. That being said I bought a mounting rail that slides into the dovetail slot to mount a scout scope. A small aluminum block slides into the dovetail slot, and the rail screws on top, with the rear of...
  16. 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...
  17. 1957 Marlin 336 3030 Sights

    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...
  18. Newer and Older 336...what to do

    Welcome New Members
    Good morning. New to Marlin formula. I recently picked up a 1957 336 30 30..about 80% grade. Bluing looks decent. No pitting. A tad surface rust at end of barrel. Sight screws missing. Some one installed fiber optic sights on it...those coming off ASAP. The same day I had a friend offer to sell...
  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...
  20. Stith Mount for a 336

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    Definitely a long shot, but would anyone here know where I could locate a Stith scope mount for an older 336?
