    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

    Those sure are purty guns :grin: . 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. :D

    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.
