    Hey guys, I am new to this forum and this is my first post. I figured you all would be the best to ask the following question...

  3. 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...

    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...
  5. 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. The barrel was roll stamped New Haven, CT but it did not have JM stamped on the barrel. I'm of the understanding the parts for the...

    Hey everyone, I'm looking to buy my first new lever gun for some out of state hunts. I guess the main reason choosing a lever gun is the nostalgia factor but I'm also really interested in the performance of these new marlins and they seem just as capable as any bolt or single shot I've been...

    I've been lurking for a while - trying to learn what I can. Today I picked up my first Marlin lever action so I figured it was time to become an active participant. I found a JM stamped new in box 336 XLR 30/30 at a local dealer. Not much time to get my new rifle ready for deer season! John
  9. Bears fear me! New (to me) 1895 XLR

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Picked her up at a Pawn Shop today after scouring another gun show and the Olympia Cabelas. I spotted it a while back for $699. Golfbuddy45 suggested I offer $650 (thanks!) I offered $600 and they took it. I wonder what woulda happened if I started at $500?!?! :) Now the tough part... Keep...
