Anyone have one / used one?
Thoughts, comments, gripes, praise?
How far would you have to travel to go get it? That's my only question.
Well, I'm pretty much debating between a Marlin 336SS or the Marlin 336XLR. Only big difference is in bore machining, bore length, and magazine capacity.
This is the XLR
And this is the SS
Geez am I dumb! I thought that you were talking about a boat. Goes to show what I know about anything.
Those sure are purty guns . I dont care too much for the laminated stocks though. I still havent added a 44 mag lever gun to my collection, some day. I cant wait for deer season this year for some reason.
Yeah, I love the stainless and wood look. If the had a monte carlo style stock, it'd be perfect.
I didnt know they had a XLR now, I have a 336W, which seems to be fairly close to the new XLR and it is quite a nice rifle. I really like the natural finished walnut stock, it is very nice, which it looks like the XLR is laminated though. My dad considered getting the stainless finish but he got a .338 mag BAR instead, go figure! I also have raised scope mounts and a 3-10x55mm leupold scope. My friend has a BLR .270, we will have little shoot offs. Setup a couple of targets at varying distances, my scope mounts are cool because I can go from 35 yards to 150 yards real quickly. Whomever loses buys the beer at the end, its great because I always win.
Heres my marlin, Im proud of it, I got it for christmas when the 336 line first came out. That was maybe 8 years ago.
