I’m a big fan of lever guns in general, but especially Marlins since the first rifle I ever owned was a Marlin Golden 39M Mountie that my dad gave me for Christmas in 1976. Here are some pics of a few of my Marlins:

Model 336CB (Cowboy) in 30-30, 1999

drool Nice collection.   One of my biggest (firearm) regrets is trading my 336C 35 Rem back in the day. Wish now it was just in the safe or around to give to the child.

I bet. That gun is on my shortlist. In fact, one of my Marlins that isn’t pictured is a ’48 336SC waffletop in 30-30, and I would trade that one for just about any pre-crossbolt safety 336 in .35 Remington, in good condition.

Very nice group of Marlins!   I’ve been accumulating Winchesters while waiting on the last few DWs I need to become available… The only Marlin I had was a 336 CS- it was a good shooter though!

Very nice collection of Marlins, Jertex. The only one I have is the one you’re missing. It’s a 1977 “JM” Model 336 in 35 Remington and was my F-I-L’s deer rifle. He went out with his cronies once a year until he got too old to do it. I’ve yet to shoot it but I hear it packs a heck of a punch and great for under 100 yards. I’ll have to call my buddy soon that has some property where I can try it out. IMG_0502.JPGImage Enlarger

Nice rifles guys ….. I just bought my first rifle a couple of weeks ago. I picked up a used Savage .223 with a scope already mounted it. Still fairly new to gun owning , but I’ve got a good jump on acquiring some goods…….lol.   I’ve bought 6 guns within a year of having my license , and just bought a reloading press as well.

Nice Marlin collection! I only have two, one in .41 Magnum and the other in .444 Marlin. You should see how it takes the silhouette rams down…sure is fun!

Wow, the 41 magnum is another Marlin I’d like to have. If it shoots anywhere nearly as nice at my 44 magnum, it’s a keeper. I bet that 444 hammers those silhouettes, and it’s a little easier on the shoulder & flatter shooting than a 45-70.

It’s a happy addiction, LOL. Just wait till you get your first lever gun. There something about shooting those guns that just feels right, at least to me.

My friend has the 45-70 version and in comparing the two, at least to me, the 444 has a bit sharper recoil, while the 45-70 is more of a push. Still, it is a lot. We used to play ram games at 200 meters after the silhouette matches. With all 10 of them set up, we each took a bank of five, then we tried to see who could clean their bank first. Sure was a lot of fun!
