It hasn't been drilled or tapped in any way,just has the buckhorn sights on the barrel.

The wood on older Marlins is generally superior to the newer stuff. Why the 35 Rem never got the love or fame of the 30-30 is a mystery to many.

I w like to think Elmer Keith w agree w the larger SD of the 35 Rem which leaves a
20 percent larger wound channel prior to expansion.

People often say there is nothing the 35 can do that the 30-30 can't which is true but there is also nothing the 30-30 can do that the 35 can't do w more authority. Large chunks of lead can make a real impression on large game.

However, ammo availability is an issue and even the local shops will have 30-30 ammo.

For the most part,both do the same thing,however I think i'd want that .35 at the moment a grizzly charged me.

A gent took a Marlin 35 and cut the barrel down to 16" and smoothed the action some. He said it was a Hog Hammer. If I ever ran into a 300 lb bruin, I w appreciate the extra punch.

FYI : I own both.
