I inherited two Marlin rifles from my father. One is a 336RC 35 Rem and the other is a model '93' 30-30 both are lever action. I have since picked up a Marlin model 80 22 cal for rabbits and plinkin. I will probably pick up a Marlin bolt action sometime in the future to make a set. I hunt Muley's, Bear, Cougar, Elk, Duck and Geese. Coyote and rabbits are also on the agenda. I look forward to learning from all you Marlin owners.
