In a moment of weakness I almost put this rifle up for sale. Fortunately I caught my self. I wondered, how many .35 Remingtons does one need? Well, the correct answer, as I eventually realized, is more than 3. This is a 1974 model and it is in superb condition. This was my first .336. I am presently pondering the correct scope set up for it since I didn't care for what I had on it. I am photographing a few rifles so I thought I would show her off just a little bit. Just for the fun of it and for people who like that sort of thing, the box on which it rests is a machinery crate from many many years ago that was shipped to Jones & Laughlin Steel. Makes a neat table of sorts and J&L Steel has family meaning from years ago.

Great rifle - I think you made a wise decision to keep it.

My standard answer, when someone is seeking a scope for a lever action, is the lightweight (8 ounces) 2.5x Leupold. Almost 5" of eye relief. Great little optic. Mine is on my 45/70 now, but has been on other rifles in the past. Mount it low via Leupold STD or I prefer a Weaver mount. Can get Quick Release rings that fit the Weaver mount so switching to sights is easy.

Regards, Guy

J & L Steel was a western Pennsylvania company. I have friends that used to work there; they earned great salaries during early 1970's.

My Glenfield 30GT wears a Simmons 2-7X scope which meets all my needs very nicely.

Don’t forget the 14 & 141 either. I had 336, 14, 141, 8 & 81 in 35. I’m down to two the 8 & 141, Will keep them both. The 8 was my first deer rifle and the 141 is my favorite. Members from Texas keep buying up my 35s. My 14 went that way last month. I always thought that odd but my hunting experiences in Texas were in western regions.

i have to admit these are not 35s both are 30 remington, the 141 on top is from 1935 and the other is from 1912, both are pawn shop rescue guns, the 141 is a rare transition gun that is not stamped 141,,,,,,,,,,,,,
