Just before the last server crash, someone had started a similar thread. Just as I was posting my "Family Picture" the server went down. Larry was out trappin in the hills, and when the site came back, the thread was gone. So, here we go again. My Marlin "Family" portrait


]


From left to right:
1990 336CS 30-30 (this is the one that infected me with Marlinitis)
2002 1894 45 COLT
1953 336SC 35 Rem.
1957 336RC 32 Win Spl.
2002 1895CB 45/70
1952 336A 35 Rem.
1949 336A 32 Win Spl.
1980 375 .375 Win
1954 336RC 30-30
1955 Win. 94 30-30 (O.K, one Winnie in deference to their demise).
conspicuously absent is my 1950 336sc in 30-30, (Dad's "borrowing" it).

Here is my latest adoptee



1953 336RC 35 Rem.

So, come on let's see your Marlins.

Here is the one I am proud of. It was engraved by Ted Severson for his son. Ted was a master engraver for Winchester and has now passed on. I replaced the target barrel with an original Marlin with all the proper markings for its year 1961. I then bought a 63 that had the deluxe wood that was available for the 61 and had a Marlin 2x scope. Swapped a gold trigger for the blued one. Put it all togeather, so configured as a ADL.

That rifle is beautiful. I can only imagine the hours that went into the engraving. If Winchester still had craftsmen like that, they would be doing fine.

Nice engraving.

What kind of scope base is on it? Is it a steel weaver style from Brownells. I like the way it doesn't overhang the front of the receiver.

What is it, and where/when did get it? I like it.

I believe it is, was on the other 35 Rem that the scope, wood, trigger all came from. The barrel was factory new and I picked it up through Numrich or Brownells, as they had bought the left over Marlin 35 barrels. So it has only had 1 round down the chamber after it was head spaced. I have several 35's, so shoot the others, show this one off.

That family portrait is missing a 39A...nice 336's, especially the 336A'S.

BEAUTIFUL 336 Sure-shot. Been meaning to ask about that one. Like the low-mounted scope (Marlin?).

djh,

Great looking guns! By the way, I like the look of those recoil pads....what kind are they and are they "pre-fit" or "grind to size"?

Thanks,
Dan

Dan 444:

The re-coil pads I use are PACHMAYR WHITE LINE VENTALATED pads.

They go for around $ 15.00 at most gun shops and they do have to be fitted to the stock.

I installed these at the time I refinished the wood.

Hope this helps.

Great looking rifles. Great pics, everyone. MM93, you are such a modest fellow, I knew you had a nice colliction but wow, what a fantastic show of your Marlins.

I'll get in on the pics sooner or later.

Big Redhead, I am down to only one Winchester and it is a Golden Spike Commenrative built in 1970. Got it from my father-in-law, and yes, I plan to place it among the Marlins I have accumulated, they get along quite well in the safe.

I am waiting for my .35 XLR (a 1950, 336 "A" drilled and tapped, 24" barrel) to arrive so I can include it in my pic, I hope it's here next week. My source is pretty wishy washy so I don't really know when I'll get it 8) .

Marlinman,
That is a beautiful collection. How long has it taken you to accumulate all of those? Do you shoot any of them?

Thanks BorderBrewer! I've been collecting Marlins for about 20 years. My collection is almost all pre WWI era, except for a few 39's and early cased 39a's. It totals about 50+ now.
