New to the forum, so greetings to all.
Just purchased my first Marlin, a 336W 30-30, JM stamped, built in 1971 according to serial #, picked it up at the local gun ship for $275.
Rifle has a tight action, very clean bore, gun shop thought it had a low round count for the year.
Does have a few mild nicks on the stock, which appears to be Birch?, will strip it down, refinish with a mahogany stain and True Oil.
Previous owner had removed the factory butt pad, cut the butt square, and rather sloppily installed a shotgun style recoil pad, which I'll replace with a tight fitted 1" Pachmyer Deaccelerator pad - have long arms, can use the extra length of pull.
Plan on scoping it, so appreciate recommendations for a scope, budget of around $200 or so.
Looking forward to tuning this nice rifle up, and than getting it to the range for some fun.

cheers

First 2 of 17 means it is a 1983...

Full pics of the stock and forearm before any work you do would be helpful in identifying it. Including the underside of the stock...

The rise of the rings depends on the objective lens size you choose...
