    Hello everybody. I am new to this forum but I have been on the Glock forum for a while like some of you.
    I will soon be the owner if a new 336W and I cannot wait to get it and shoot it. I see lots of great pics of Marlins and I am happy to be a part of another great group of gun lovers.

    I think I have to wait to actually get mine before I can shoot it....lol. It may take me a bit before I can head out the the outdoor range. I don't have one close by, but I will be itching to go, I can tell you that. I already have 160 rounds of ammo, sight rings and gun case just waiting.

    Well, I went and picked up my new Marlin Lever rifle today. I took it out of the box in the gun store and gave it a once over. Everything looked great. I got home and continued to load it with some 30-30 snap caps I have. It was very hard to load. I chambered a round and dry fired it. When I tried to recycle it the snap cap stayed in the barrel. I looked, and it was deep in the barrel. I knew something was wrong, what could it be.
    You see folks, I ordered an 336w which is a 30-30 chambered rifle. The box was marked 336W - 30 30 Lever Action, but when I looked at the barrel it was marked Mod 1895G 45/70 Govt. No wonder the wood looked so good on it. It was dark walnut instead of Birch... To go even further, the serial number on the box matches the serial number on teh gun. This is the box marked model 336W 30 30 - Lever Action.

    Now my delima is, should I just keep it. The ammo is a lot more expensive for it, so plinking is out of the question....

    What do you guys think?

    PS: I just spoke to Marlin Customer Service. She verified that the serial number is for a 336W in 30 30.

    Very curious.
    Very strange indeed.

    That is very peculiar. I'm sure they will make it right but keep us posted. I heard their customer service is good.

    My 336W looks great. The loading gate is also very stiff bit I expected that. I've shot only 10 rds through it so far. Nothing much to report yet. I put a Williams peep sight on it so now I want to get it sighted in, hopefully this weekend. It gets dark so early I really can't go shooting during the week.

    Assuming you are serious, a range report is a detailed report posted after taking a gun to the range. Often includes a target as an example of how well it shoots. Along with details i.e. feel, fit, function, failures, negative points and positive points.
