Default New Marlin 336

I bought a new Marlin 336 30/30, back in the 1990s..but gave it to a grandson about 4 years ago. Now I have a hankering for another one.

Are they still microgroove?

Question: If I get a new one, will it work as good and shoot as good as the other one I had?

they're supposed to have all the remlin gremlins gone from
their new production, but i couldn't say first hand.
a friend bought a new one last year and was pleased with
the fit and function. it looked great to me and didn't have
all the crappy bulges and gaps that everyone posted online
about the other rifles

The only Marlins that aren't MicroGroove are the Cowboy versions and they are deep cut Ballard type rifling. Very good accuracy by my estimation.

A funny thing happened at Walmart the other day. I went there to check on the Marlin 336, to use for deer and perhaps hogs. But there, sitthing right next to the

Marlin, was this intriguing rifle with a sand colored stock..I caved in, and went for the Ruger..

I have long been a fan of .44 mag rifles for deer, since my hunting is in the wooded Allegany mountains.

The 450 Bushmaster seems to be a .44 mag on steroids.

The first time you touch it off, you'll think steroids alright.

Good gun and should be highly effective on deer. But launching a 250 gr bullet at about 2200 FPS out of a 5 1/2 pound rifle doesn't appeal to me anymore! Arthritis in both shoulders and heavy recoil don't mix well.

I have Arthur in all my major joints.. but I can still grit my teeth! Actually, I have no problem with my .44 mag CVA rifle..and if worse comes to worst, I can always load down some..

The .44 mag puts out 240gr @ about 1800, while the Ruger will push 250 gr @ 2200. I'll have to put my VA ears in my pocket though..

Yup, I'm just a wimp!

That little Ruger is a handy little package and should serve you well.

Reports claim that they tried the rifle with and without the muzzle brake. Those trying it, say there is very marked difference.

Due to legal changes, these are being used much in Michigan, and those guys report that the recoil is equal to a 20 ga , shooting slugs.

I've shot my share of slugs, .410 to 12 ga and had no problems..in fact, an H&R 12 ga deer gun was my regular for 3-4 years, but of course, that was years ago,

In any case, if I have any problem, I can add weight to the stock, or get a Boyd's stock.. As for now I'll try as is first.
