    Not what they should be
    I bought the 336 Stainless steel model a year ago to use for deer hunting. Always wanted a .30-30 lever gun and chose this rifle. After trying several Winchesters and Henry's, I went with this rifle because it was a bit ...cheaper. Another reason I had picked this rifle over a Henry or Winchester, is because it's a lot easier to mount a scope to it. I had heard after a few years with the merger of Marlin into the Freedom Group, the quality had gotten better (roughly 2013+ was supposedly better). However there are several quality issues that potential buyers NEED to be aware of, before deciding on this rifle. more

    Stainless Beauty
    I bought the 336SS over a year ago. It's been to the range and gunsmith a few times. Overall, I love this rifle. But it took a little work to make it right. First change was the trigger. Eliminated the Marlin floppy trig...ger with a Wild West Trigger Happy mod. The original lever has sharp corners and was uncomfortable cocking. Swapped that out for a big loop lever from Wild West. First time at the range it was shooting 4-6 inches high at 50 yards. The windage was okay. Another trip to the gunsmith for a higher front sight. It shoots a 6 inch group at 100 yards now. That's a kill shot in my book. Wouldn't think of putting a scope on it. Ruin the looks. more

    Quality lost with Remington behind the wheel
    Just got my 336Y Marlin 30-30 the other day, took it to the range and very disappointed. Heavy trigger. My son couldn't pull it with one finger. Scale has it at 7 1/8 lbs, way too heavy. The magazine gate spring is very ...heavy as well, very difficult to feed rounds into the gun. The second round I tried to chamber jammed in the magazine, with the round head against the rear lower area, out of reach of the lifter. I had to nudge it with a precision screw driver to get it where the lifter could reach it. All in all, a gun that should never have left the factory. This is the second gun under Remington that has been junk out of the box (also had an H&R .444 with a 12 lb trigger and bad head space that they 'fixed' putting the trigger down to 2.5 lbs, too light to reliably engage the transfer bar. They're response when I got it back 2 months later? It's now out of warranty, but we'd be happy to evaluate it at your expense and make a repair...). This one is going to the factory for repair immediately, and this is my last purchase of any firearm managed under the Remington umbrella. My next Lever gun will be a Henry. It's too bad, it's a nice looking gun, and 20 years ago, under Marlin, it would have been a great gun, like the other two Marlins I have in the safe... more

    336ss 30.30
    I bought this rifle over the summer and finally got out to sight it in using Hornady's Leverlevolution ammo. The gun shoots great, feels great, good balance, great finish on hardware and furniture, but I cant see through... the sights worth a flip for a 100yds shot, so I am consistently shooting 18" high. Time to find a scope more

    Excellent gun
    Always dream about having a lever rifle. Took it to the range and it was great. Just change the scope for a better one to be more accurate in 200 yds. Haven't try it after the new scope, but I know it'll be perfect. Beau...tiful rifle more

    Fair all around rifle
    I needed something I could put under my back seat of my truck. This rifle is intended for hogs and deer. I hunt national forest all the time and get tired of knocking my scopes off so I got this rifle for hunting open si...ghts. I upgraded to peep hole sights so I can see better. I use hog hammer ammo and hornady ammunition. I've got over 200 rounds and no jams yet. more

    Great gun
    I have always wanted a lever action gun since I started hunting. My wife and kids bought this gun for me for a Christmas gift. When I first took it to shoot, I couldn't hit anything. I adjusted the front sight and it got... better but still not on target. I sent it in for repair and it came back. I took it and it shot really nicely. I'm a older guy so I put a scope on it and can cluster at 100 yards every time. It shoots nice, fun to shoot and a thrill to hunt with. more

    Disappointed
    Bought the 336W on January 26, 2017. Was assured the newer Marlin / Remington's were quality and reliable. On 2-8-17 at the range the lever broke and it jammed. It's off to the factory for repairs after firing about 100 ...rounds. I expect better quality and reliability. Will see how good customer service and repairs are performed. Likely going to trade it off. When I get it back. more

    crooked sites
    I won this rifle in a raffle. The rear dovetail site is seriously crooked. Apparently from reading other reviews, this is a common occurrence with Marlin. I'm going to secure a picatinny mount and put a red dot on this r...ifle to make it more accurate. Really hard to shoot straight with the sites the way they came out of the box. Not at all impressed by Marlin's attention to detail and craftsmanship. Very hard rifle to load as well, if you have dainty hands don't buy this one. more

    New Lever Action rifle
    After doing a lot of research for a Lever Action rifle I got the 336C from Cabelas today. I love the fit and finish of this rifle. It is a beautiful gun and I can't wait to try it out at the range.The Marlin quality is b...ack and you can't go wrong with this rifle. more

    Dont buy!!!
    Beautiful firearm but it came with a manufactures defect. The hammer will not fully engage and gets stuck in the open position so you can't even chamber a round. Also the sling lug is crooked in the butt stock. The side ...of the box says Made in the USA by American craftsman. So my question is how did it make it through they're inspections after the firearm was manufactured? These American craftsman need to take a little more pride in their work if you ask me. Marlin is honoring they're warranty with a 4-6 week turn around. Wow what a disappointment. I've been wanting a lever gun since I was a kid and finally as an adult can afford one and what a letdown! more

    Best Black Friday Purchase Ever!
    Picked this up on Black Friday for $399. Put a Simmons 3-9x50 scope, Leopold base and Nikon High 1" rings on it. Purchased Hornandy Custom Lite Lever Action Reduced Recoil 30-30 150gr bullets. Took it to the range t...oday, sighted it in and shot 1" groups at 100yds. This rifle is amazing and has little to no kick. Fun to shoot! I have found my new hunting rifle! more

    Only 10 rounds in
    Picked it up in Black Friday for 399.97. Took it to the range today and put 10 rounds thought it and the gf put 3 through. I did 5 steady shots and 5 quick shots. Happy with my group even if 25 yards. (Gf was on paper bu...t way off) I'm using iron sites and will most likely keep it this way for a late season brush gun (if meat is in the freezer) .308 scoped will be my early season till I get a deer (can't miss and they don't run) can't wait till I can bring this out for a push or thinking I might try coyote hunt sense it cycles smooth and doesn't jump off target far. Given only ten rounds in don't take this review to heart . But so far I loved shooting it. more

    I'm addicted
    Took my new 336SS 30 30 to the range for first time to break in. This is my first lever action - and I'm now addicted. Fired two shots, cleaned bore, repeated several times. Then sighted in scope at 50 yds. (sorry purist... - old guy with bad eyes). Much more accurate than I thought; not a tack driver but pulled some 2 inch or less groups at 50 and100 yards which is good for my barely adequate abilities.Action and trigger were both very smooth from shot one. The previous night I cleaned and lubed well and work the action a lot.Definitely in the top 3 of my collection in the fun to shoot category. Now I want another to make into a scout rifle.Have heard some complaints about new models since Remington takeover but the fit and finish on my are superb, and it operates flawlessly. more

    A Rough Start!
    I had an old 336 that I sold and have regret ever since. So, I went to Bass Pro to purchase this 336W that they had on sale. I looked at the display model and I liked it a lot. I purchased one the same day. The clerk at ...the counter who was extremely nice and helpful verified the serial number on the gun to the one on the box, then sealed the box back up. When I got home and was in the process of putting the scope mounts on I discovered that the "Tang Screw" was missing. I called Marlin to report that it was missing and to get a replacement. The representative that I talked to did not seem surprised and took my information and said I will receive one in the mail in 7-10 business days. I then called Bass Pro and talked to a manager and she seemed like I was wasting her time and did not care. Hopefully she did talk to the Firearms Manager so they can look at there other 336's to verify that they are intact. I would not want someone else to experience this problem. Needless to say I have not shot my new firearm yet but I hope it shoots as great as the 336 i once owned. more

    Great rifle
    Bought this gun last fall and was a little skeptical after reading some of the reviews but it has been flawless. Not much recoil and shoots straight. Replaced the cheap scope it came with for a nikon prostaff.I did tight...en down all the screws before shooting it for the first time and the gun is susceptible to rust because of the finish but keep it well oiled and will be good.Shoots fantastic with factory loads and can get two inch groupings.Great gun! more

    Love my 336W
    I just purchased a used 2014 Marlin 336W (blue steel, laminate stock) from Cabela's Gun Library, tried it for the first time today at a local range, and was very happy with the fit, finish, and performance. All of the mo...ving parts feel solid and smooth, the gun's nicely balanced, and it had zero problem with different brands of inexpensive factory ammo (I cycled a box of low-end Winchester and low-end Federal through it, both 170 grain). My grouping at 25 yards was nice and tight too, using just the factory's iron sights. Two other shooters also enjoyed tearing up targets with it. All of which is to say that I'm loving my 'Remlin'! ;-) more

    My 336W was a lemon
    Barrel and receiver were out of alignment. Could not zero for the life of me. Found out the reason why too late for this hunting season. Had to send it back. Not a happy customer. Previous review was removed. This does n...ot make me happy with the review process at Cabela's as my earlier review was honest and factual and potential buyers should know that this product may have quality issues. more

    336W
    Bought this rifle as part of a Marlin pair. The other being a 1895 45-70. Both to be set up as Scout rifles using XS Sight's rail and peep sight. 1895 install and zero went well. 336W did not. Rifle was not able to zero ...within normal adjustment ranges. What I have since found is receiver and barrel on 336 are misaligned. Even with Marlin scope and rail it is not zero able. I am just now starting to follow up with Cabelas and Marlin. more

    Great rifle
    I bought this gun a couple years ago and have had no trouble with it at all. It is fun to shoot, compact and kicks like a mule. I would recommend a good recoil pad as it is so compact, there is not a lot of bulk to take ...the recoil for you. Very accurate and cheap to operate. Easy to clean and maintain. I own a few rifles that are far more powerful and pretty but always seem to reach for the 336w. Great rifle. more

    This gun is well made, cycles smoothly and shoots straight. If that isn't enough for you in a 30/30 lever, than I suggest you take up another hobby.

    accurate, but prone to jamming
    I purchased a 336 SS 30-30 in 2009. I was very pleased with the accuracy of the rifle and the mild recoil made it an enjoyable rifle to shoot round after round at the range. It is relatively light and compact yet much mo...re accurate than typical 18.5 inch barrelled compact rifles of similar overall length. The stainless set up was very much appreciated after a long day stalking/tracking in the cold Saskatchewan bush where moisture and frost get all over the rifle. more

    Santa brought me this gun , and one week later I harvested a BIG axis buck with a Remington 150gr CorLoc bullet. Perfect gun for taking deer at a feeder 100 yards away. Buck dropped in its tracks. I've taken deer with a ...270, 300WM, 223, 50 cal muzzleloader and a bow. Will only use a bow and this 30-30 from now on. more

    Marlin® Model 336 Lever-Action Rifle 30-30
    I recently purchased a Marlin 336 30-30 rifle, Cabela’s Lever action scope, and Hornady 160gr LeverRevolution ammunition. My dad used this gun to take down an 8 point Buck and two doe from 50 to 75 yards. He typically ...hunts with a 12ga shotgun and takes a deer a season. Needless to say he want be going back to the shotgun. The scope is easy to quickly get your eye on the target and does not fog up. The 336C works great with the scope and the Hornady ammo. I sighted the scope in at 100yards with no problems. All three products are great. more

    So far so good.
    I had occasion this year (late 2013) to pick up a couple 30-30s in Marlin 336w and later 336c. The 336w has that parkerized finish that Remington uses on the SPS rifles. It was ok. The rifle had no issues with loading or... ejecting but the action felt a little rough. Was very accurate and chrony'd 2780fps with Hornady LE ammo. Only one screw for the front sight though and found this out when I put on a fiber optic and it was flimsy. The 336c is a better quality rifle, the action is very smooth, no probs with any function of the rifle. The only issue was the checkering on the pistol grip was a little smooth. I called Marlin who said they are starting production again of the XLR rifle in Dec 2013. more

    Love the Design
    I have owned this gun a while now, and have killed numerous things with it. I shot a 160 pound deer and it traveled only 10 yards before falling. I have also shot many hogs with this gun including some over 180 lbs. This... gun is plenty potent at ranges up to 125 yards, but over that my confidence dwindles. But that is not really a short coming of the rifle but of the cartridge. more

    Good Rifle for the $
    Bought this rifle in 2012. The finish is parkerized and can be susceptible to rusting. It is the same finish on Rem 700s bargain rifles. The front site has one screw and easily strips and the front stud on the barrel ban...d is not removeable. Action is sticky but ok. I cycled numerous rounds from it in both Hornady LeverEvolution and Win/Rem/Fed factory ammo. No probs. The accuracy was very good with a Williams peep site. It was particularly accurate with 170gr. Win ammo. Chronographed factory ammo out of the 20" barrel produced: Hornady LE 2450fps average and 170gr factory ammo showed 2215 to 2260 (PowerMax Bonded). more

    Marlin got a bullseye on the price!This simple, easy to use rifle is well-made and very accurate. Apart from the horrible iron sights - a flaw that can be corrected easily - there is nothing not to love with this rifle :... smooth action, awesome trigger with absolutely no creep, enough stopping power for most situations. Highly recommended! more

    I bought a 336W in late 2011. Came with variable scope and sling. I have not had a single problem with this rifle and took 2 deer in 2011 and 2 in 2012. I use Hornady 160 gr. flex tip ammo and the gun shoots like a laser.... Remington bought Marlin in 2007 and apparently the bugs have been worked out. Giddy up! more

    Good rifle now
    I've been a shooter for 25 years but last year was my first deer season. The gun out of the box wouldn't cycle at all. I had to send it to a Remington repair center. 6 weeks later I got it back and they had adjusted the ...action and it cycles smoothly now. 4" groups at 100 yds with the iron sights. Nikon Prostaff scope zeroed in quickly to 1" groups at 100yds. Killed my first buck at 85 yards standing. Good shoulder shot but had to track him 150 yds. I may upgrade to a .35 Remington 336C to get more knock down power and a walnut instead of birchwood. I like the gun. Simple, accurate and easy to carry with a strap. And I don't have so much in it that I'm worried about scratching it. more

    Dead On
    I just bought this gun for my 14yr old son to go hunting for his first time this year. It didn't come with a scope so that will be the next thing we'll get him. He and I shot it straight out of the box to see how bad the... sights were going to be. The gun is amazing, well balanced and the sights were "DEAD ON". I shot it prone and my son stood. Both of us had a nice tight grouping. I don't think it would've been any better with a scope on it. My son wants hunt with it without a scope this year to see how he does. I have a good feeling that this gun will never see a scope on it. We are very pleased with the purchase. I am thinking I might have to buy one next year. I would recommend this gun to everyone. more

    First Lever Action Rifle I have bought
    This rifle has a great action but the iron sights set up at the factory are way off. I had to put a scope on the rifle to get it to hit the target at 50 yds. At 25 yds using the iron sights while aiming at the bulls eye ...the shots went 4ins high and left. I started at the 50 yard targets then shifted to 25 yd one after a few shots.As a retired US Navy range master this rifle out of the box was not of high enough quality because of the sights. With a Scope it is an excellent shooting weapon.I bought it to go Feral Pig hunting on my farm in East Texas. more

    My father killed his 1st deer with this gun in 1962. He gave it to me in 1972 and I have hunted with it every season since. When my son was old enough to hunt, I bought one for him and he dropped a buck the first time he... went deer hunting. It's simple, safe, accurate, perfect for hunting in heavy cover and for us, part of the family. more

    Great Lever action Brush Carbine
    My first deer rifle was a Winchester pre 64 30/30.I bought it used in 1957and still have it. However, a year later my hunting buddy got a Marlin 336 in 30/30. That is when I got to make a true comparison of the two rifle...s. The first thing was how tight the Marlin action is and how much smoother it was compared to my 94. The Marlin didnt rattle like the 94 and made far less noise when operating the lever. The accuracy with the marlin was better than the 94 with the same ammo. The Marlin bolt and lever could be removed by a single screw. When I was in the Service I bought a new Marlin 336RC in 35 Rem. The scope on it now is a Leupold 1.5X5 VXlll. Before deer season I check the "O". Each time the first two bullets go into the same hole a 100 yds and the rest follow real close. Oh, and it kills deer too. I am not knocking the 94, it still a great old rifle but the Marlin is better. more

    Marlin 336C 36 Years Later
    This was my first deer rifle purchased new. I went to a bigger caliber rifle for years. My life circumstances changed four years ago and I got the Marlin back out. It worked flawlessly. I did upgrade the open sites to la...ser type. When I hunt for deer during firearm season, the 30-30 is my choice. more

    Completely Satisfied
    After reading some negative reviews on the new Remlins I was a little reluctent to purchase this rifle. However I did and am completely satisfied. I own a Winchester Trapper 45LC and the Marlin Action is so much smoother.... The blueing and wood were very good. I have cycled a tube of rounds through the gun with no problems. I have not been to fire it yet. more

    Most favorite rifle
    I bought my 336 about 2 years ago from Bass Pro. It shoots flat @ 100yd with plain old low end ammo. You put some Hornady through it and and add another 50 to that! Iron sights! When my buddies come out to shoot they ALW...AYS ask where it is. A work of art. I would never scope it. No need. Makes me smile everytime I open the case. I have over 200 rounds through it now. Flawless! more

    shoots great-kicks like a mule
    Bought this for my grandson. I have used a marlin 30-03 for 30 years, this new one came with scope and sling . A great price too! Shoots great 3"groups at 100 yards, but kicks too much. My 11 year old grandson asked... if he could use my old one. The new one kicks so much it scared him away away from pulling the trigger. Truthfully, it kicks too much for me too. I will probably trade it for another gun. more

    My First Rifle
    I'm a pistol man but wanted to try a rifle. I just wanted something fun to shoot at the range. Since I didn't have hunting on my mind I got the .357/.38 SP with the short barrel.

    Sweet multipurpose rifle
    Bought my 336C in 1974, with scope and gold trigger. Has always been dead-on accurate. My younger brother dropped it from a tree stand. I fired three rounds to test accuracy: all in center, covered by quarter, at 100 yar...ds. I love this rifle!! more

    This rifle is really nice to shoot, no issues after putting couple boxes of ammo through it. Everything is still tight, the lever is smooth, and it is a joy to shoot. Would buy another one.

    336C Flop

    Great gun
    I have had a Marlin 336 since 1991, at that time i paid $197 for it brand new. I have not regreted my investment at all since then. I like lever action rifles because they have great safety features and are a blast to sh...ot. I have spent countless hours in the woods with my 30 30 and taken many deer and hogs with it, including a 13 point buck with a 28 inch spread and drop tine. Get one its an investment you wont regret. more

    Surprise
    Let me preempt this by saying that I haven't even fired this rifle yet. That being said, I'm already happy with it. The rifle was purchased by my 90 year old grandfather who is an former Marine Raider during WWII and the...n a CWO in the Army after the war. He has never bought himself a rifle as far as I'm aware and just shocked me by asking me to mount a scope to his brand new marlin 336. He was as excited as a kid on Christmas morning! Once we get it dialed in, he wants to go deer hunting. I couldn't be more excited. more

    great rifle
    I'm a fan of lever guns to begin with. A few years ago I bought a used 336 in 444 marlin- it was beat and I got taken in an auction. Cleaned it, reblued and new wood and its a great rifle again. So I was excited to get a... new one in 30/30 last month. I took 2 nice deer (buck and doe) on opening day last Saturday before 9am. While eating turkey last night, one of our friends said " I have one of those I'm selling in 35 rem"... its a 1951 and now its my next deer gun! more

    Fine rifle for the field or the range
    I bought the 336W, that came with the sling and scope. Craftsmanship seemed good. The checkering is clear, the bluing is uniform and the action is smooth. With 160gr Leverevolution ammunition I managed 1.5" group fr...om 100 metres in the kneeling position. (Who has a firing rest with them in the field?) The scope mounting was a little loose, nothing a few turns of the wrench wouldn't fix. Though to be honest I intend to replace the stock scope with a fixed 4x as a better fit for my use of this rifle. more

    groups well
    I have been hunting with lever guns since I began hunting as a boy. I recently replaced my old marlin 336 (which was a solid built rifle) with a 336w. I have taken this to the range and it was a decent rifle, but was not... what I expected from a marlin. I am hunting with the iron sights and they where not even close out of the box. I have them adjusted to the lowest setting possible and they are still high, the windage had to be tweaked and is fine now as long as it is not easily knocked off. After half a box of shells I also had to tighten the butt stock as it had began to loosen. Aside from the sights being off, the rifle grouped well and is comfortable to shoot. Time will tell with this gun how it hold up when hunting deer and black bear this fall, but it is decent for the price. Disappointed in the change in quality after being sold to Remington though more

    Poor Quality Rifle!
    I bought a 336C a couple weeks ago, I took it out of the plastic and there was rust in the trigger mechanism. The rifle did not cycle properly and jammed every second shot between cycling. I could not squeeze the trigger... unless I also squeezed the lever to the butt stock because it wouldn't lock up. I sent it back, now on the second rifle after 40 shots, the butt was literally falling apart and was coming loose from the rifle, the magazine tube was coming loose after 20 shots and the rifle was not feeding properly because of this....I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS RIFLE TO ANYONE! I WILL NEVER EVER AGAIN BUY A MARLIN LEVER GUN. more

    How the mighty have fallen
    This is one of the all time great rifle designs, and for many years Marlin produced fine quality rifles, unfortunately last year they were purchased by remington and moved production to the remington factory. The quality... control is terrible. My brand new 336w Has burrs on the ejector and extractor that prevented the gun from feeding shells, the extractor was bent which prevented the gun from extracting fired shells, and the lever would not lock up. Unacceptable in a brand new rifle. Now that all the faulty parts have been replaced it is a good reliable rifle, but I was extremely disappointed in Marlins current Quality Control. Would recommend the Mossberg 464 or Rossi Rio Grande for a 30-30 lever in the same price range. Or buy a used 336. more

    Love this rifle
    I have always wanted a lever action rifle. I did a lot of google searching reading reviews and settled on the Marlin 30 - 30 for a couple of reasons, price, reliability and accuracy. I bought is used from Cabelas as the ...used was in excellent condition (not a scratch on the barrel or stock). It looked as if it had been well cared for. Could not wait to check out and take my 2 boys shooting. Within 3 hours of buying this rifle, I was on the range putting rounds through it. I was not disappointed, Great accuracy, smooth lever movement, little kick. This will be my deer rifle. more

    i have wanted a lever action 30-30 since i was 5 years old and now 20 years later i spoiled my self and bought one, it was a marlin 336c. every time i see it i kick my self for not getting it years ago. no matter where i... go, she goes with me, very accurate and very fun to shoot, of hand i can shoot 5 shot group in 4in or less, no scope just iron sites at 100yrds, straight out of the box, i am very happy with this gun and when my boy gets to be of the right age i will get him the same one, if you are looking for a great gun in lever action look no more this one wont disapoint more

    looking back
    I was brousing reviews and I saw ones for the Marlin 336. I have one I bought in 1965 when I was in high school. It is one of the best rifles made. Mine came with the gold plated trigger and although the gold is wearing ...off the rest of the rifle is still as tight and accurate as ever. I put Williams peep sites on it years ago but now I am being forced to put a scope on it so I can see the target. If you want the best lever gun on the market but this one. more

    Great first Deer Rifle
    I'll let others debate the advantages of a bolt action rifle in larger calibers vs. a .30-.30 lever action. I own both types. My Marlin 336W is a good gun when stalking in the thick stuff (if I sit on stand over an open ...field I prefer my bolt action .308). If using your Marlin for deer hunting you will definitely want to check out Hornaday's LeverRevolution round. You can't beat the fun target shooting a lever action gives you. I've owned my Marlin for 4 years now and never had a problem. more

    Great american classic rifle
    I love my new 336c that I got this year. The short length, and lighter weight for still hunting make it an ideal deer rifle, just as it always has been. I use the new Hornaday leverevolution ammo in mine, and it outgroup...s my Ruger M77 MKII, with sub moa at 100yds. Now with this new ammo, I think many will take another look at these great performing rifle's. The extended shooting range they give you, and extra downrange energy truly make's this a great all around rifle. Low recoil, and fast follow up shot's if needed, and great balance. The new crossbolt safety feature I use when loading and unloading, as that's a nice feature when you have to chamber each round. I use the standard hammer safety only while I'm hunting. My bolt gun is getting dusty. Not the best pic's, but you get the idea. I did a great 3 shot group with a perfect triangle, and all 3 touching at 100yds., and of course the camera was home. more

    This gun is for everyone that are looking for a well build rifle at a super low price. The 30-30 caliber of the Marlin 336w is perfect for deer hunting and plinking. I've purchase this gun because I always wanted a "...;cowboy" rifle since I was a little boy and there I have it! Strong and durable mecanism, nice hardwood stock, padded sling, everything's there for having a great rifle. I'm the kinna guy that purchase and sell rifle often but this one is a keeper.

    A great beginner deer rifle. Not a lot of kick when staring down the scope at your backstraps. Does the job easily, and when paired with the right ammo you can really take down a deer at a far range if needed. I would re...commend Hornady's LeveRevolution. They can do the job out to 200 yards easily. more

    I bought one of these when I was in college and killed several nice bucks with it. With no warning what so ever it misfired (at 20 yards) on the largest 10 pointer I had seen up until that time. It had a bent firing pin ...and would shoot 3 or 4 times then misfire 3 or 4 times...only thing that saved it from being wrapped around a tree was a new Redfield scope I had just put on it.

    Marlin 336C
    When I first decided to buy a lever action rifle I looked at both the Winchester 94 and the Marlin 336C. I have had my Marlin 336C for 32 years and it is one of the sweetest, steadiest shooting rifles I've ever used. Whe...n I first bought it, I replaced the buckhorn site with a peep sight. During a lull in deer hunting, one day, set up a target at 200 yds and was able to put several rounds about 2" to the right of the bullseye. I recently swapped the peep sight with a scope. That and the hand loads my son has made using the 160 grain Hornady LeverRevolution round and I'm consistently shooting silver dollar size groups at 100 and 150 yds. Haven't tried 200 yds yet. This is one tough rifle. It's withstood a lot of abuse and several moves back and forth across the country while I was in the military. more

    The rifle I have is chambered in 30-30 Winchester, and is very accurate. I have a scope on this one. Shoots 1 inch groups from the bench at 100yds. Tried all kinds of 150 grain ammo and it consumes it with pleasure, with...out too much difference at the point of impact. The 160 grain Hornady Leverevolution - same great results. This rifle is amazing bargain. Perfect for brush hunting deer, woods rifle, adventure rifle, you name it! Nothing to dislike here... more

    Bought one of these solid rifles in 35 Remington it shoots straight and works reliably and doesn't break your bank. The only obvious word of caution is, if you never used a lever gun in your life. Have an experienced per...son teach you proper lever gun safety if you value your life more than the firearm. That being said these type of guns will improve your hunting shooting experience and they are just plain fun. more
