i like the looks of the winchester 94 better, but i like the stronger and smoother action on the marlin 336 better. both are good guns and which ever one you get will serve you well.

I've got an old 30-30 Model '94 I inherited from my uncle who was a cowboy up in Colorado back in the 1920's and even though that old rifle is 100 years old now, it still shoots great despite showing signs of its age. The more you use them, the smoother the action gets.

I'm going with the Marlin but I'm a well known Marlin fan.

Default 30-30 Lever Action

Again, I want to thank everyone who offered information to me. I got a really good offer on a Winchester 94 and I bought it. It's just a little rough but it will make a very nice "truck gun". Thanks again.

As I said earlier, my old '94 is 100 y.o. now and shows a lot of wear and tear from being carried on horseback in a saddle scabbard for years, but despite that it still functions and shoots perfectly. I'm not sure how old they have to get before they are too old.

Good luck with your new rifle, post some pictures when you get a chance.

Just a word of advice on lever actions. When working the lever, do it like you mean it. Don't baby it or do it too easily.

There's no such thing as too old in my opinion, age is character when it comes to guns, furniture, cars and such like that.
