Big levergun fan here. I'm in the market for a pre safety Marlin 336 in .30-30 in 90%+ condition. Not an easy find as most people that buy lever guns use them often. Lugging a gun through the woods, in and out of the truck, and up ladder stands puts wear on them quick.

In my area there is a lot of good deer hunting at close range in wooded areas, perfect for a levergun. Not that my Rem700 in .270 with a 3-9x40 wont hunt good in the woods, there is just something about taking a deer with iron sights.

Love them. I have a Marlin 336 that is a couple of years newer than yours (1967) that is a real beauty and a slick handler. I wouldnt trade it for anything. I also have a Rossi 92 in 38/357 that is a heck of a lot of fun to shoot. Handles .357 and .38 rounds without a difference.

Hope you all fill your lever gun wish lists. I have them from 1873 to current. Savage Winchester and Marlin. All calibers. I have shot deer, elk, moose, and bears with them including a 9 1/2 foot brownie with a .348 model 71 that was hauled all around the state in an airplane by a Dr. friend of mine. Take them out and use them. I even have an 86 in .45-70 that was used to take Beluga whales.

Nice rifles. Older Marlin 336 30-30s are some of the best.

For some time I've been wanting a .44 Mag lever gun. I guess it's about time I bought one.

My EMF Hartford Rossi is a .357/.38 that didn't like .38 Special ammo. If you cycled the lever too fast, the round would pop out the top of the reciever. The solution was to use a "Snakebite" mould that was part of a group buy maybe 10 years ago when I was heavier into SASS. This bullet is a 160 grain RNFP but it's longer than other designs. Now I load this bullet in my .38 Special loads and the function problems are gone. IIRC, a few of the Marlin shooters also had this problem running .38s through their 1894 rifles as well so there were some of those shooters too that got in on that group buy as well.
The only 38 bullet I use is the lead 160 grain SWC, which does function fine.
Could be, a different bullet nose, weight, length, design, might give a problem.

Actually the 38 functioned so well I was going through a lot of ammo. Even though it was my reloads I was blasting through a lot of 38 Special (Wanted Dead or Alive fast firing from the hip ).
I was glad to see Henry come out with the 22.

I have a Henry 22 lr and love shooting it. Bought used at cabelas and it is very accurate with open sites. Would love to get a lever in 357/38 next.

I had a Winchester 94 thutty-thutty twenty years ago and I hated it. The action was rough and the feeding was abominable.

I'd like to get a BLR in .308 but I heard that the internals had some plastic parts that weren't too durable.

I think that I'd like to hunt up a vintage Savage 99.

I love shooting the 22lr but the 22wmr is the one that makes the "tacticool" guys giggle like little girls when they try it.

It its impossible not to have a big grin on your face when you're shooting either of the 22's.

Love leverguns!!!!!

Marlin 1895G in .45-70 Government
Marlin 1895CB in .45-70 Government
Marlin 1894CB in .44 Magnum
Winchester 94 "Trapper" in .44 Magnum



Right now, the .45-70 is the only Government that I trust.

That sounds like a great signature line!!! I agree but my taste runs more with my Browning 1886 SRC.

I think Henry's Lever guns are a blast. I tend to giggle a little when shooting my 22 cal Henry! Want to also add another Henry ASAP. Maybe a 357, or a 44 mag?
Had a Win 30-30, good rifle, hard to find a range to shoot it in the winter.
Have fun.
