Thanks to all for responding. I wanted to get a lever action rifle and saw a marlin 336 at the gun store. I like the way it felt, and the price. And going off the research I've done I should be able to get it cheaper then $500 (price at the store I went to). Now I'm really excited, and probably will be my next purchase

I had one as a teenager! It was my second center fire high power rifle. And it was a great rifle. I would probably recommend finding an older model in great shape vs a new model. There is a lot of talk about them not being as good today as they were several years ago????? I do not know that for fact, since I have not had an occasion to shot, handle, or inspect one that was recently made. But from my experience it was a fine little rifle. It was a Marlin 336C in 30-30.

The older ones are good solid rifles. If you look and find a use one with litle wear on it, you could save some money and still get a solid performing rifle. Some of the ones made a few years ago until recently have been of questionable quality.

The last few used ones I've scouted out for friends to buy were all bought for $350 or less. Each was made in the 1990s or earlier. All shoot very well.

I played around with a red dot on a 1984 model that a friend bought and I dis some refinishing work on for him. It was pretty amazing how fast I could get hits at ranges inside of 100 yds compared to iron sights.

Fun to shoot but your shoulder will hurt if you shoot it a lot and don't have a butt pad on the stock.

Ammo costs too much to use it for anything else than hunting.

I don't find the .30-30 to be painful to shoot. Ammo is more pricey than some plinkers but handloading can help and its still cheaper than .308 or .30-06. And they are more punishing to shoot.
