Using Hornady's new LeveRevolution ammo, the humble .30-30 can be turned into an honest 300 yard rifle, adequate for most N. American game. I own a 336, my first serious caliber [bigger than .22 LR] rifle. I've owned it over 20 years and have often thought of the age-old question; "If I could only have one rifle?" I'd probably choose the Marlin. Not a bad choice for home defense, as well.

I haven't put a scope on mine, it just seems wrong to have one mounted on a lever gun. But that's just me being old school.
I am planning on upgrading the sights tho, to fiber optix because of my aging eyes.

Even after being used for over 20 years and passed down to me its still Cherry! at 100 yards I can put 3 shots in a quarter size hole. Although its a little heavy it has always been my favorite deer buster

Its also not prudent to call AR15s.....223's.

THe Marlin 336 is a FINE weapon. I prefer Marlin lever actions to any others.

I have a 336 in 35 Remington, .30-30 Win, and a 39A.

Even with the leverevolution, a scope on these guns is overkill.
Shooter ready....
