I just bought my first straight stock 3030 from gun broker. I paid a bit much but you never see them in the places I frequent and it is 98%. I hope it feels and fits as good as it looks. I know I need to shpw pics but I do not have the gun yet.

Congrats! Saddle ring or no saddle ring?

You know you could copy the GB photos and post them here so we don't have to wait like kids in a candy store. ;)

I'm one of those guys that prefer straight stocks over pistol grip. So much so I converted my .338MX to one ;). I think you'll like yours ;). When you get yours in make sure you post the pics.

It does not have a saddle ring and is a 1976 year gun. I will try to post a pic from GB.

Thanks guys, it is the 7th 336 in 4 months. I have 39a, first gun @ 9yrs old, 39 Mountie, 1894 357 mag, 1895 4570gss, I fell in love with 336 rc pre safeties and I have two 35 rems and five 3030s. My biggest problem is I need a new gun safe for just my levers. I like 9422s as well and I have a few. I have two new guns on the way and no room in the safe, I know, terrible problem to have. I thank you guys for the nice comments, make me feel better about my purchase. Now I need a straight stock in 35 rem.

I just sold a straight grip marlin very similiar to the one you bought. I had it for a while and thought it was time for an upgrade and bought the BL. They dont make marlins as light or as slim as that anymore. reminded me of my old winchester 94.
my new 30/30 is ok but I can definitely feel the weight from the laminated stock after a few hours in the bush. geez its bulky.

Nice rifle my friend!! Those straight grips are really nice. Have the feel and lines of a Winchester 94 but in my opinion better made. I'm purchasing a '68' Texan and I find the fit and finish on them to be outstanding. Wish they still made em that way! ;)

when I think of a lever gun and how it should look to me the straight grip 336 is perfect although i hate the spacers and take them off my marlins. I think that is why I started with the 1895 and 1894 due to the straight stock. I do like my pistol grips as well but I can not bring myself to even like a perch belly at this time. You never know. I'm sure the next 336 will be straight in 35 rem because I like the 35 so much.
on a side note, I gave my older brother a case of marlinitis and he is on a spree. I talk so passionately about them he had to try it and you guys know how that turns out. He has three and counting.
