    Went in to my local gun shop tonight and didn't they have a 336 SDG "Limited" 30-30, 1 of 500. Brand new, JM stamped. Owner said he has had it stashed away for a long time and just decided to put it on the floor tonight. Since I am a very good customer he gave me a sweet deal. Pretty much a no brainer. I can't wait to sample her.

    Got a chance to shoot it today. WOW! I have a bunch of guns, but I think this is my new favorite. Recoil was much less then I thought it would be, and it was dead nuts accurate at about 50 yards. The fiber optic sites are the cats ass. I couldn't be happier.

    A limited edition unfired JM 30-30 !!! Man you lucky dog. That`s a beautiful marlin, so are you always this lucky or were the stars aligned ?

    Oldbrass, I'm not always that lucky. I'm Law Enforcement and had went into my local police and fire store for some new T-shirts for under my uniform. I know the owner pretty well so I talked to him for 20 minutes first, picked up my t-shirts, then said, "well, I should probably go make the obligatory walk through the rifle section". Though this place mostly deals in tactical rifles and duty type guns, they normally stock 10 or so levers. The stainless Marlin was sitting right in the middle of all these blued levers. It was like seeing the Holy Grail. It was almost glowing. I picked it up, saw the "Limited" on the barrel, and the JM stamp. The owner asked me, "You know what that is". I said, "I sure do. Where did you get this". He explained he he'd had it for a quite while stashed in the back room and was thinking about keeping it...

    Well needless to say, theres just some things that when you run across them, you buy them.

    Oh yeah, It's not unfired anymore. :D
