  2. Pushing the Limits of the Marlin 336 (or, How my .30-30 Got the AX)

    Ranger Point Precision
    I got to wondering recently. Typically, if that goes on long enough, the ol’ measuring stick comes out, then unusual credit card charges begin to appear, and before you know it, there’s a fresh pile of chips on the mill table. Sometimes a small pile of discarded parts sacrifice themselves to the...

  4. 1895 XLR Marlin/Remlin

    The 45/70 Govt.
    I bought an XLR in 308 in 2002 but always wanted an 1895. When Remington bought Marlin I thought I was out of luck but I eventually found one about 18 months ago.

    Hello. I've been a Marlin owner since I was 12 years old. Some 30+ yrs now, I wonder where all that time went? My first Marlin is a 30-30 that has "Glennfield Arms" or similar stamped on it.(not looking at it right now). I just recently purchased a .308MX and now I'm a little curious about...
  6. Scope and Hornady LE ammo

    My wife's 336 is scoped with the standard factory scope that came with her 336 package. While trying to site it in with LE ammo this year, it got to where I couldn't adjust the scope anymore and the LE was shooting around 6 inches high at 100 yds. So where do I go from here? Shim the scope? Buy...

    I know I know -- I am gonna start reloading soon and hope to just shoot hard cast; but I just put the scope on this iron and had this ammo thru some other swappin deal/ so you can see RR1 & RR2 - one of the holes in RR1 shows again in RR2 because the little cover dot flew off when I centered...
  9. Need info regarding Hornady Leverevolution rounds for my 1894ss

    Greetings. Just bought a beautiful 1894ss manufactured in 2002. Picked up some Hornady Leverevolution rounds (plastic tip) and headed to the range. When I got ready to load the gun I found that only one shell would go into the tube at a time. The first one when in real slick then the second...
  10. New Marlin owner, happy as heck!!

    Welcome New Members
    Hi All, Just bought my first Marlin. I live in Indiana where only pistol cartridges are allowed for Deer, so I picked up a model 1894 in .44 Magnum. I was a little hesitant to buy a new rifle given all the hullabaloo about Remington taking over the company, but being a Remington fan from way...
