Re: What Would Be The BEST 30-30 Lever Rifle

Marlin, it remains one of my favorite rifles .... not so much because it’s a Marlin, but because it’s a lever action. If Henry ever comes out with a blued version of their side-loader, I’ll snap one up for sure. There you go! Henry Rifles! It doesn't take a century of tradition and archived drawing...

Re: What Would Be The BEST 30-30 Lever Rifle

Very nice looking Marlin. I feel I must warn you though, having now been exposed you may develop a case of Marlinitis! We'll need a range report! Here's the S/N index http://leeroysramblings.com/Gun%20Articles/marlin_manfg_date_code.html Thank you. I will check the serial number in a little bit. I ...

Re: What Would Be The BEST 30-30 Lever Rifle

Well the Winchester deal didn’t work. I am new to lever actions, but learned quickly I am not fond of the cross bolt safety. The same man who had the Winchester had a Marlin 336 pre-lock. The Marlin is a little heavier than the Winchester. I am guessing it from the 1970’s or 1980’s. Not a mark on i...

I found me a Winchester 94AE with a gold trigger. The Wood is a dark color and looks to be in great shape. I haven’t decided 100%, but I think it will satisfy my needs. Not going to put a scope on it so I think it will be great.

Re: What Would Be The BEST 30-30 Lever Rifle

If your in the used market you can sometimes come across a JM stamped marlin. Don't know if I would buy a newer one. I think that is what I want in a 16” barrel. A JM 336 with a 16¼" barrel in 30-30 or .35 Rem is a particularly hard rifle to find. The Model 336LTS Carbine (made 1988-89; only in 30-...

Re: 5 Officers Shot In Houston - Pray

Some information that I had not seen. There are not a whole lot of details, but some interesting information. July 30, 2019 A botched drug raid led to a wave of leaks. Cops peeking at internal records then found themselves under investigation . Amid a wave of workplace rumors and leaks to the media...

Re: What Would Be The BEST 30-30 Lever Rifle

Marlin, Winchester, Henry are all worth a look. I am partial to Marlins, but only the JM marked rifles. Remington still cannot match the workmanship of Marlin. Remlins, as they are affectionately called still vary in quality, from acceptable to looking like a hammer and chisel were used in the proce...
