Here is a Marlin 336 that my dad Bought in 1954. Nothing to do with Remington. THIS IS A REAL LEVER ACTION! It is a 32 Special and took several deer, but only has about 80 shots -MAX through it. Still have an original box of ammo. Back in the day we only took a few shots to make sure it it a pie plate off hand at 75yards and then only shot it if we saw a deer. No need to waste ammo-it wasn't for target practice only for taking game. Been sitting in a closet and then my safe for 50 years. I take all my non used firearms out every six months and run a patch through the bore and clean with G-96. This one is Pristine and can be used for Deer, Bear, Moose, Enormous HOGSMy 11 and 14 year old learned about lever actions in their hunter safety training.
Are Marlin 336s worth a dang anymore with Remington going belly up?
Should I get a Henry?
If you are luck enough of get an older Marlin for your BOYS they would be very LUCKY Indeed!!! If you can get an older Pre 64 Winchester Model 94 30-30 that would be great too, but you can't beat these older MARLINS!!!!!!!!!!!!
I added a Williams Peep Sight probably 30 years ago, with the intention to shoot hogs, but never shot it due to more modern rifles. I have the original sites.
