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.
