Smile 336 Marlin



Log in to see fewer ads
I had a Marlin 336 as my first deer rifle many years ago. It was O.K. for deer, shot my first buck with it.
I absolutely hated unloading the thing at the close of a day's worth of hunting.
It's accuracy was just fair with 170gr factory loads.
My favorite deer rifle was my Remington 7600 pump in 30-06......accurate, easy to load and unload...…loved the detachable magazine.
I also had a Model 70 Winchester 30-06...……..very accurate...….dropped a lot of deer with it!
I wasn't unhappy to see my first rifle (Marlin 336) traded for a Winchester Model 70...…….never looked back!

336 Marlin

I have two if you count a Glenfield (pre hammer block safety)model as a 336. Both very accurate especially with Hornady Lever Evolution ammo. Neither seems to like Federal or Winchester ammo much for accuracy.

1968 model 336T. Given to me by my best friend, Buddy, before he passed away a several years ago. My son has shot several deer with it. It shoots handloaded leverevolution ammo into about an inch.
I'm a Winchester guy, but I'll keep this one....

I tried out a buddies Winchester 30/30 unsure of the model but it was a top eject I did not care for it. Every deer I’ve shot with it has went down and been recovered and I dont always show it the love it deserves.

The Marlin is much more solid feeling than the Winchester, but the Winchester is lighter. Each has it's place in the field.

You stole those Rifles!
I too have a 51' Winchester model 94/30-30
And a Marlin 336 in .35 Remington. (Mine was a birthday present from my brother, 279$ new??)
The Marlin once had the cross bolt safety.
Till I snapped it on a nice buck..dang it!
Ordered up the Clyde Ludwig kit.
Removed it.
Have been very happy with it ever since.
Yes, the hammer of Thor!
I really like my old Winchester, but ,? Of all three. I shoot the Marlin 30-30 the most.
They are all great rifles.

I am looking for one like the 336 CB shown above. Great looking rifle. I recently purchased it’s big brother in an 1895 Cowboy with the 26 inch octagonal barrel.

I think they would be quite the handsome pair.

You have two options.
Look for an older rifle that has the sight holes.
Get an XS receiver sight that mounts on top.
The XS will be cheaper than a vintage steel Lyman and a little more than the aluminum Williams.

The Williams FP 336 mounts right on top in the holes for the scope base. No side taps necessary. Excellent sight.

You'll like them even better with a 16" barrel and a suppressor.

If you haven't tried it, the Hornady LeveRevolution ammo is worth it. You get a tad more than 300 Savage ballistics.
The bullets and the powder are available if you reload.

How far back did you have to move the front sights?

No4km1t . . .

. . . those appear to be a fun pair of guns to shoot.

My 336C is similar to the top 'scout scoped' rifle, but has no suppressor and has the standard 20" barrel. XS scope mount, Leupold 2x handgun scope which barely allows a full view through it.

Had one, sold it to someone who wanted it more than me, frankly I prefer my CZ 527 in 7.62x39 for the same use but that's just me.





I did make a few bucks on it.

Just curious, why did you hate unloading it?

They both were originally 20" barrels. Now they are 16.5". So 3.5".
