Hi Guys,

Jim here, near Lake Charles, LA.

I got my first Marlin a couple of years ago when I decided to try hunting wild hogs. Never hunted before except for a few birds. I researched my options pretty well and decided on a Marlin 336W in .30-30. I believe I made the right choice! So far, on three hunts I have fired four shots and taken home four hogs, including my latest, a 394-pound bar. I use a Nikon Pro-Staff 3-9x50 scope and 160 gr. LeveRevolution ammo. Love this setup!

My only issue is that I have big hands, and can't get my fingers comfortably into the lever. Wonder if anyone has replaced their lever with the "Big Loop" from a 336BL?

I'm looking forward to learning a lot from you guys! Thanks in advance for any replies.

Regards,
Jim

Glad to have you with us Jim, sounds like some fine shooting you've done. Looks to me that Marlin should have made a bigger loop standard on all their rifles, but I guess they want some more coin for fixing that problem ;D .DT
