The flagship of our Model 336 family, and one of the most popular hunting rifles in North America. Offered in 30-30 Win. and the hard-hitting 35 Remington, it embodies our dedication to dependability, pinpoint accuracy and good looks. A 20" barrel with Micro-Groove® rifling makes it exceptionally handy in the brush and deadly accurate. The American black walnut stock and fore-end are enhanced with fine-cut checkering and our tough Mar-Shield® finish. Its solid-top receiver is drilled and tapped for scope mounts. It also features a richly blued finish and adjustable sights.

The wood is processed near my hometown in Rutland, Vermont. It is laminated and impregnated with waterproof glue and from my own experience it is indestructible. It is a bit heavier but on a 2 piece stock like the Marlin barely noticeable.
