barrel markings

  1. 336 XLR 30-30 - new guy needs help - ss barrel wavy/ripple finish - is it shootable?

    Hey folks I just recently acquired my 2nd firearm ever, a 336XLR in 30-30. I lurked here for months and read all the online articles about Rem taking over production ops and all of that. I was willing to take a moderate amount of risk to own this rifle but i felt like I did all the prep work...
  2. Unusual roll stamp on barrel...opinions please.

    I recently traded for a 1966 336RC with a straight stock and saddle ring. The barrel markings are strange, crooked and not in normal sequence. Take a look and tell what me what you all think.
