I know what you mean about the 35 Remington. It was my first rifle and I later found out it would have been the only rifle I ever needed. I sold it to get a more powerful bolt gun.

Depending on condition they have been selling in the neighborhood of $350-$500 at the local gun auction. The going price is for the Marlin produced gun not the Remington produced. Big difference in workmanship, the Marlin being the better.

Given the ever growing demand for "pre-Remlin" 336s I actually think that's a pretty good price. Congrats to your friend on a acquiring a classic hunting rifle that should give good service for the rest of his life.

You need to understand. The .30-30 and being a nice 336 in the north east it is a major find.

I told him he should be handing it down to his kids. It is in amazing mechanical condition.

Can't say much. Learning sometimes hurts. Been there, learned.

J-Pat,

Ever use the finishing products from "Laurel Valley Forge" for stock finishing? (I got them from Brownell's)

I haven't done any wood work for 20 years or more, but I sure turned out some beautiful stocks with that stuff.

Another trick I learned from a gunsmith. Before taking your pretty stock into the field, remove any stock wax and coat the wood with Johnson's "Glo-Coat." This stuff is rock hard. Of course, you remove the Glo-Coat and re-apply stock wax when you get home!

Well I have 336 in 35 I am considering selling. It is an old one in VERY GOOD condition. I got it to hunt with, but found a 'beater' which shoots GREAT so this one has become a gun safe orphan!

This is something I've wrestled with for decades.

The Marlin is stronger than a Winchester 94. Slightly more accurate, more rugged, just all around a better rifle (albeit a bit heavier)

But when you pick up a 94,.... the feel....the balance... the light weight,...... the way it just naturally jumps to your shoulder,.......
and most of all that buttery smooth action..... well,,,,,,,

I've owned 2 Marlin 336s and one Model 94. I still have the 94.

There's a reason that its predecessor, the Winchester 1873, was deemed "The Gun That Won the West" and that the Model 1894 has been referred to as the "ultimate lever-action design" by firearms historians such as RL Wilson and Hal Herring. Sometimes it's not just marketing. Sometimes something just "feels right."
