Very nice find.
'Didn't want those rifles'.
Funny, that was my first thought when I saw the picture!
Pretty neat, but if a lever action was my "patrol rifle" in this day and age (when I'd be far more likely to face a guy with an AR-15 instead of grandpa's thutty-thutty) I'd be pretty pissed.
That's a great score
A few years back San Bernardino county still had lever actions in 30-30 that could be taken out for patrol. I don't know if they still do
Yeah, but getting shot with a .35 Rem. soft point is anything BUT friendly. Doubt they had many “failure to stop” issues.
I've seen several shootings and a suicide with 30-30s using conventional soft-point hunting ammo. Split times become irrelevant because the effect is instant and no second dose is required.
Great rifle. My deer/bear/elk rifle is a 336 from 1981, also in .35 Remington. It was cheap, works like a champ, and fills the freezer. Great defensive rifle as well.
You ain’t kidding. We had a young man commit suicide with a 30-30 under the chin. The only messier one I’ve seen was with 12 ga. 00 buckshot.
I have a Nebraska State patrol mini 14 GB model, a Niagara falls PD s&w sw40e and a Glock 22 marked Atlanta police!
I love police trade-ins, they are a very unique piece of gun history!
I have a Marlin 336 that was built up into a Gunsite Police Rifle back in 1993. It's a handy, accurate piece. Haven't shot it in years. Congrats on your acquisition of a nice, memorable specimen.
I would have bought that rifle in a heartbeat
I've decided this rifle will have to go to the range more often. 35 Remington ammo seems to ve very seasonal and is primarily on the shelves around hunting season. Plus, it's too expensive for fun range time. So, I spent some free time today loading some ammo for it.
Not too long ago I was gifted a free Redding turret press from a deceased man's estate. Today, I finally fired it up. I REALLY like this turret press. Seventy rounds later and I'm done. These are 200 gr. bullets I cast and coat myself.
For super fun plinking I really enjoy stuffing some of my 158 gr. pistol bullets in these 35 Remingtons.
Here's my other 35 Remingtons. The one on the left is a G prefix gun from 1950, the first year Marlin produced the 35.
What I like about it is the unmolested waffle top. Never drilled or tapped after all these years.
I wouldn't go quite that far, but, I'd give up a couple of molars for one of those lever guns!
As Tim Allen once said, "Nobody' messin' with Man Land!"
Loaded 50 rounds for my 35 Remington using Missouri Bullets 158 gr. HiTek coated bullet. They look a lot like your 158 gr. load. I need to get me a 195 or 200 gr. mold for my rifle.
