Default Marlin 336

Hey guys! I just picked myself up a Marlin 336W. I got it used from a guy for $780 (He threw in a sling, case, and 500 rounds of ammo) Anyways, anyone have any experience with one? And should I throw a scope on it for deer? Thanks.imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1398373291.675036.jpg I'll put up more pictures if you guys want....

I would try it out before adding a scope.
Iron sights don't fog up!

These are very excellent rifles. They're very accurate, handy, and reliable. I don't know your area, but most places where you'd hunt with a .30-30 you don't NEED a scope but they do look nice on a Marlin and could help out some. Mine has a Bushnell 3-9x40 on it.

I would scope because my 50+ year old eyes don't like iron sights.

It is strictly up to you to scope or not to scope.

My very first firearm was a Marlin 336C. Great rifle, bought it in 1971 and still have it. I think you'll love it.

I have had a few 336 rifles. Like them a lot. Never paid more than $380, but don't know what the market is like in your neck of the woods. I like them better than Winchester 94 rifles.

Seth,

Nice rifle and good he provided the 500 rounds of ammunition and a sling that made the rifle worth the money. Otherwise he would have got you! Most 336 Models are bringing about $350.00 to $375.00. But with that said with the ammo and the sling you did OK! That knowing that ammunition is not cheap. I have seen it for the 30-30 at around $197.00 for 200 rounds. Obviously it is a shooter as pictured which makes it even better yet! As far as a scope a 30-30 is a great brush and 100-150 yard deer rifle. I would suggest a 4X-6X Scope if you are going to get one for it with Medium Height Rings and a good quality Scope Base. Nikon makes some great scopes for the money and quality. It will make you and excellent deer hunting package. I had a 336 C in years past and wished today I had never sold or traded it? You have one of the nicest lever action rifles made. I like the previous post have a Winchester 94 but liked the Marlin 336 better. Someday I am going to find another 336 C that was made from 1980 or earlier for the collection and to shoot.
Enjoy that new rifle it is a very good weapon!

Thanks 03.... The guy was originally selling it for $900 but when he heard I was 15 and had a passion for firearms, he lowered the price generously.
