    Hey mark thanks for replying and giving me some
    Information. I really appreciate it. I'm only 23 but I'm in love with the look and feel of it and I'm going to keep it I think and maybe keeping in in the family and passing it down one day.

    Hey Dave,

    Here in PA, the Marlin 30-30 accounts for a lot of venison.

    At some point, you may want to put a set of Skinner Sights on it, along with a dovetail blank.

    http://www.skinnersights.com/ Have them on three of my Marlins......:)

    I imagine if you sold your 336 you could possibly kick yourself for it years down the road. They aren't making anymore JM 336 rifles. The new remlins are very poor quality from what has been reported. Maybe by now they have gotten the quality thing taken care of. I saw a new 336 at Academy and it was not even close to being as nice as my JM model made close to 35 years ago.

    Yea I think I am going to use it for when I put my bear baits in and possibly to shoot a black bear with the open sights.

    Yea I was thinking of selling it but when I was looking at it more and holding it I just love it and it's a really neat gun. Yea I heard that the new ones are awful quality compared to the older ones so maybe one day with little use it will be worth some good coin but who knows.
