I installed a set of Skinner peep sights on mine. I am very pleased and took a 7pt buck this past season with it. If optics are your preference, stick with some thing low profile like a 4x32 or 2-7x32. Some people will use see-thru rings so you can use iron sights if needed.

I recently purchased a Marlin 336. From the factory it had problems, my LGS assured me the gun was fine. I hadn't handled a .30-30 in over 30 years so I trusted my LGS. Guess who was right... The rifle had to go back, Marlin was very good about it. When I did get the firearm back from the gunsmith it was perfect! It was a loooong 8 weeks waiting. Shoots tight groups out to 100 yards easily with the iron sights. Enjoy!

An outstanding rifle that will serve you for a lifetime. Mine has become my go to rifle for sub 100yard deer hunting but I have not issues reaching out farther with it. The model you are looking at won't have the crossbolt safety which is a worthless addition IMO.

Can't say much more than has already been said, except that the 336 has always been my favorite lever rifle.

I love my 336C, always wanted a lever and finally got one. 30/30 ammo is not cheap though. That's the only drawback. Damn near a buck a round. I can get down to .04 for my 10/22 and close to .20 for 9mm at cabelas today.

I don't know where you're buying ammo but I'm not paying anywhere near $1 per round of 30-30. Reloading brings that cost down even more.

14 to 17 for a box of 20 at cabelas. That's .70 to .85 each. Where should I be shopping for this? Not shooting the 336C as much as I want because I've not found an inexpensive source yet. No problem buying bulk, but bulk to these guys is 25 boxes at same price. Clue me in!

Last time I bought a box at Walmart I think it was $11 or $12 for a box of 20. Keep in mind this is the cheap Federal soft points but their accurate out of my rifle and will take a deer just as well as something more expensive.

If you keep your eyes open you can find sales as well. I got several boxes of Core lokts for $10 per 20 back around Christmas. I've never had on of them let me down.

Don't get me wrong, it's not as cheap as some other rounds but you should be able to get that price down to the $.50 -60 area.
