Went to Walmart in Melbourne,Fl last Sun to look for ammo.It's come back pretty good.They had everything ,but 22LR.I looked at a new Remlin 336C 30 30 on sale for $350.Anyway,I had an employee discount card(girlfriend works there) .The discount made it $335 + $5 background check and tax.This one looked good and although it did not feel like my 80's 336 Marlin,it felt ok.Figured for that price I can shoot it awhile,then sell it without losing much.SO,I got it. I proceed to go home and get my 80's Marlin 336 ,ammo and a case for the Remlin and head to the Port Malibar gun club's 50 yrd range to try it out.Shot very well! Very accurate out the box!Not as smooth as my 80's Marlin 336, but what the hell?It's not a true Marlin anyway.I had fun time! Today after work I met a buddy and headed to the gun club.He wanted to try the Remlin.We load it up,and the lever locked!I laughed and said:good thing I got" oil' reliable!!(my true Marlin). After inspection I found that the Remlin was missing a screw on the receiver.Found it in the carry case.It musta been loose(like the one in my head for purchasing it!)after shooting Sunday. Anyway ,I screwed it back in and it shoots again.Not really disappointed in the gun,just in myself for not putting $335 towards another used true Marlin. Got home ,cleaned it and made sure all screws were tight. I may still play with the Remlin for a while,because it shoots well.But,I'll probably sell it eventually.Can't ever trust it like I do a true Marlin.
