This is a Marlin 336. Like the Winchester, it loads in the side, but the frame is solid at top, and it ejects to the side.

The angle eject Winchester 94 looks the same as the regular 94, but will have AE in there somewhere, and does not eject straight up, but at an angle.

I had both they are great guns but if I feel the Marlin 336 is the better gun the Mirco Groove barrel put super tight groups.

If it's like the rifle in the video it's not a Winchester model 94-it's a Marlin model 1894-there is where the confusion arises. Marlins do have a conventional steel receiver and could be touched up bluing wise. Marlin model 1894s don't come in 30-30 however.

I own a Marlin in .44 magnum and I love it. People used to hunt small bears with the .44 magnum lever action saddle carbines. Over all, it's a good hunting gun and a decent carbine for personal defense needs too. I know some cops who swear by their lever action carbines.

I have owned one Winchester 94, currently have several Marlins. I find them to be more accurate and better QC.

I was only able to talk him down to 260. I did end up buying it. It is a legit Winchester I believe and the shells eject out of the top. It is in pretty good condition actually. It just looks like some idiot stored it improperly causing it to get a little rusty. The rifling looks new abd the wood is in fantastic shape.

I went and bought some ammo for it later..... expensive!
I'm about ready to take it to the range to see how she performs!

Nice! Wally World usually has .30-30 ammo for a decent price.

I would rather buy ammo that costs me a couple more dollars and support a local gun shop full of people that I like than go to that freakin capitalist tyrant of a store! If every Wal-Mart would burn down and no one would get hurt I would not shed a single tear.


Also, the gun shoots just fine. My father fell in love with it. lol
I am trying to figure out how old it is. The front site is hooded and the rear sight is.... weird. It is also a carbine but w/o the saddle ring. Instead, it has a scope mount on its side.
I'll take some pictures here soon.

I think it is Sportsmans Guide that has bulk .30-30, too. I don't order from them anymore because of their weird shipping restrictions, but bulk .30-30 might be a good deal.

I love my Winchester 94. It's a blast to shoot.I like the Marlins (have a 1894 in 44 mag.) too and the are a little more scope friendly but the range on most lever rifles I don't see much need for Glass anyway. I'dreally like to find a lever rifle in 38/357 to add to the lever collection. THe fall gun shows are popping up around my neck of the woods so it shouldn't be long
