Found a Marlin 336 in 35 Rem -- Great Day

Hello from Texas!
I have had the hots for a Marlin 336 in 35 Rem down at the pawn shop for several weeks. The owner didn't have it displayed because there was a crack in the rear stock and some glue where some fool apparently tried to glue a slip-on shoulder pad in place. She had said she wanted a gunsmith to redo the stock...but there it sat for three weeks.
So I asked the owner if I could take it home and try the stock redo. She agreed and I brought it home. My wife saw the black walnut wood and said she would do the stock redo....took her about 1 1/2 hours and it is looking great.
The gun has an "AC" serial number which is supposed to mean it was made in 1967. When I got it home, I dropped the lever and pulled the bolt to clean it and check the barrel...barrel is in superb looks hardly used.
It came with a scope rail and Leupold rings so I think I'll put a Pine Ridge 2-7 x 35 scope on it tomorrow and see if it shoots. I got a box of Winchester Super-X 200 gr Power Point for the test. Had to pay $35 at a local hardward store but after all ya gotta have ammo to do a test. Got home and checked Cheaper than Dirt on line and they have Hornady Leveraction 200 gr plastic tips for $22 a box.
She's a shooter -- I'm gonna keep this winner!
So I guess I need to join the 35 Team.

Welcome to the board and congrats on finding a great rifle!
Well judging from the fact that you are not afraid to buy a gun for its potential, you are willing to redo a stock (or at least your wife is ;D ), and that you are now the proud owner of a Marlin lever gun, I think you'll fit in well here. Welcome from the sovereign state of Missouri.
