LGS put out a rack full of used Marlins a couple of weeks ago. I found this site and realized they were good buys. Bought a 69 prefix 336 30/30 Centennial, a 69 prefix Glenfield 30 30/30 and put a 23 prefix 444S on layaway. The see-thru mounts and cheap scopes came with them and will be replaced before this fall. They go well with the S prefix model 39 that i inherited. it was my Grandfathers and he bought it used before ww2 - its seen a lot of use!
