Found one used and was wondering what to look for when buying one used. I don't like buying used as I think most times you might be buying someone elses problems kind of like a used car. Anyways that statement can be way off as some people sell just to sell. Any suggestion on what to look for.

If you look at the NRA standards for modern firearms it does indeed suggest that you steer from any gun that is markedly blemished in some way. Unless you enjoy troubleshooting mechanical devices. Often though, the problem can be fairly inexpensive to repair.


NEW: Not previously sold at retail, in same condition as current factory production.
PERFECT: In New condition in every respect. (Jim's note - in my experience, many collectors & dealers use "As New" to describe this condition).
EXCELLENT: New condition, used but little, no noticeable marring of wood or metal, bluing perfect, (except at muzzle or sharp edges).
VERY GOOD: In perfect working condition, no appreciable wear on working surfaces, no corrosion or pitting, only minor surface dents or scratches.
GOOD: In safe working condition, minor wear on working surfaces, no broken parts, no corrosion or pitting that will interfere with proper functioning.
FAIR: In safe working condition but well worn, perhaps requiring replacement of minor parts or adjustments which should be indicated in advertisement, no rust, but may have corrosion pits which do not render article unsafe or inoperable.

I hate buying used but if I find a good deal I'd like to be able to jump on in.

I don't know that I would say cheap to shoot but I can agree with the rest after you do some polishing on the internals.

Your looking a quality gun thats been around a very long time. Not much ever goes wrong with them.I would not hesitate to by a used one, Look down the bore and make sure the riflings are good no pitting etc. and work the action and give the out side a good look. Look at all the screws on any gun for buggered up marks on and around screws where some one has done a bubba job taking it apart with a non hollow ground screw driver is a dead give away.
I like both a model 94 and a 336.The winchesters are to pricey now since they closed the manufacturing plant. So to me the marlin is the top choice. mossburg is building a 94 version but I dont know much about it. The only thing I ever hear bad about a 336 is the fat stocks. A little sand paper and refinish can cure that as a number of people I have seen do.
The winchester unless its a angle eject ejects out the top and makes mounting a scope on top impossible . So the side mounted scopes are the only option and they are a pain as well as being odd ball ugly.The short basicly give or take a few 200 yard range of a 30-30 or 35 to me does not warrant a scope to add weight and get in the way of a short fast pointing carbine unless you have bad eyes.Any one who cannot hit consistantly at 200 yards with a lever gun and iron sights without a vision problem needs to go learn to shoot any way.
