    That's right folks. After lusting after them for a number of years I finally brought one home. Marlin 336 in 30-30. I know it's a dime a dozen but I got this one with a hardcase(identical to the one I got with my very first gun purchase nearly 20 years ago), a scope and best of all, without that ghey crossbolt safety. It also has the original front sight hood! How awesome is that??? Did I mention it was an early birthday gift from my wife and she(I) only gave $200? Enjoy....

    You're telling me!! How many Marlins does a guy need to own before one is a lever action?

    Very nice! Congrats, I started out with a Lever action, My dad bought me one when I was about 8 years old, However, Mine was a Winchester model 94 in 30-30.

    Nice rifle,Spitty! And happy B-day.

    The scope was probably made by Tasco or Bushnell for K-Mart. Back in the 60's-80's,the big box stores would have their logo put on the stuff they sold by the mfg's.

    I see you also have the old See-Thru scope rings on it!
