    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...

    I hope this is in the right spot. Also, this is more 'thinking out loud' at this point than a definite plan. By Tuesday, I should have a nice shiny Marlin 1894CSBL. I've always liked the look of stainless (just different, not necessarily better than blued) and the pepper laminated stocks are...

    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...

    Hello all, I purchased a beautiful 2009 JM-marked stainless 1895GS 45-70 last Saturday and decided immediately that I wanted to remove the checkering and refinish the furniture. At the same time, I slimmed down the forestock as it seemed unnecessarily bulky or "fat". Kind of reminded me of a...

    Seems to me that most of us will have a preferance either way in favour of blued or stainless. I prefer the look of fine blueing but I prefer the "sometimes not always" lower maintenance of stainless. I know I won't be unique in my preferance but I sure would like to know the general consensus...

    When it arrived at my FFL, I went in and they placed sealed unopened marlin box in front of me, now at this point i was sweating a little, hoping it was not horrendous like you hear about. Opened the box slowly and guess what? It was flawless!!:congrats: Fit and finish was spot on, sights were...

    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...
  8. 336
    Hi all, I'm looking for some help in locating a stainless large hole lever for a 336ss. I'd like to order mine with, but marlin says they don't do any customizing. Being from Canada, I need gloves on when deer rifle season comes around. Any direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    SPF- Thanks Everyone. Posting it here first among those who will appreciate it. Nearly perfect 2007 JM-stamped(Aren't they all?) 336XLR. Low round count. Puts 200gr-RN/Varget loads into 1 1/2" 100yd groups. Rifle with two-piece scope base and rings only; no scope. Only flaw is where a...
  10. Welcome New Members
    Hi All, Can anyone tell me when production began on the Stainless version of the Model 60? I've always been partial to my older model with the longer barrel but recently purchased a new stainless version for my son. I would love to have a longer version stainless for myself but don't know if...
