Hello, all, my name is Mark, I'm from Bellevue, Washington, and I recently acquired my third firearm, a 1978 (according to the serial number decoder) Marlin 336. It's actually my second Marlin (first one was a 795 I bought off a friend who was moving to Thailand), but I've wanted a 336 since I got to shoot my other friend's. I love it, but the stock sights leave much to be desired, so in the future, I intend on installing some nice peep sights.

I look forward to reading the technical articles, and hopefully learn more about both my gun, and the Marlin leverguns in general. Here's a picture of my 336, of which I've decided to get a cartridge holder for the stock, as well as eventually refinishing the furniture, and touching up (or redoing) the bluing on the top of the barrel.)



It's kind of a funny story, I went out looking for another, smaller pistol for carry purposes, but wound up at a pawn shop which had this on the shelf, and it was a good price, so I bought it. Though the pump action Remington .30-06 fascinated me, I liked this gun better.

Welcome in the forum! Your 336 is a beauty, keep it in good condition and don't sell it! :)

I came here a week ago and and feel somehow like coming home to a well known place.

Great folks, profound knowledge and good humour here. ;D

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys!

I don't intend on selling the 336 anytime soon (or the other guns) since I like to hang onto things as long as I can.

For now, Me, I think I'll be content with the .30-30, though I'm sure I could be easily won over by firing an 1895 a couple times :D

Thanks for the friendly welcome guys (and girl!) I've been reading some of the build threads on the guns, and I really really like the silver stocks that I see floating around, makes me want a stainless gun to put those on...Though I kind of want to go with a lighter color of wood for my rifle.

Now to just save up more money to work on this gun, since I feel it's worth it in the long run.
