Anybody have any personal experience with this rifle?
The older ones are good solid rifles. If you look and find a use one with litle wear on it, you could save some money and still get a solid performing rifle. Some of the ones made a few years ago until recently have been of questionable quality.Thanks to all for responding. I wanted to get a lever action rifle and saw a marlin 336 at the gun store. I like the way it felt, and the price. And going off the research I've done I should be able to get it cheaper then $500 (price at the store I went to). Now I'm really excited, and probably will be my next purchase
I played around with a red dot on a 1984 model that a friend bought and I dis some refinishing work on for him. It was pretty amazing how fast I could get hits at ranges inside of 100 yds compared to iron sights.It is also a good defense weapon. Everyone should have a 'John Wayne' assault rifle in there inventory!
