I have been a long time AK guy but recently started picking up lever action rifles when I see them. I only have 2 so far but I'm hooked. Post pics of yours 1965 Marlin 336RC 30-30. This one has been on the shelf of my local "All things Tactical" for 3 solid years. I finally decided to liberate her last month. 1967 Glenfield 30 short mag 30-30. I bought this for my 15yr old son for his birthday this year.
