Finally the calvary has arrived, thanx deerhog, my 30-30 may be the only one I need also, every animal I pointed it at is deceased...Ok Old brass,I cant let you take all the heat by yourself .I too only own one marlin in my collection at this time as I sold two others earlier this year.It is my 1955 rc n 35 rem.To be totally honest its the only one I need .Ive had deer that I have pointed this rifle at comit suicide just to spare themselves the agony of experiencing it wrath of destruction.
I've only got 1 Marlin, a 1988 Marlin 30AS in .30-30 of course. It is my favorite, too.
I've been looking at a couple more. I am looking for a used Marlin 60 .22 but I want the one with the squirrel stamped on it. I am also looking at a guide rifle to take on a trip to Alaska. I'd love a 39 but they are out of my price range new and I haven't found anyone willing to sell and older one.
It's only one now, but I'm working on it.
turkey, i've got an older M60, glenfield marlin, great shooting 22 rifle. just keep your eye open at the pawn shops and gun stores, as they appear from time to time, and usually pretty cheap. mine was bought for $75 + tax, and looked like crap, but functioned perfectly. i refinished it, added a scope i had from another rifle, looks great now and shoots good too.I only have 3 Marlin Levers a 1894C in 38/357 Mag Pre Safety Very Accurate/ 1895 GS 45-70 again Very Accurate/ Marlin 336 Cowboy in 38-55 of which I still need to work on a load. But I now have in my hands some Starline Long Brass in 38-55 . With these three I feel I am covered as far as Levers go and they are True MARLINS.
One Marlin XL-7 as from the factory in 30-06
And one Custom Marlin XL-7 made into a 35 Whelen. It THUMPS Game HARD.
You know Olddbrass, a fellow once told me to be aware of the man who has only one gun because he probably knows how to use it. I've got a safe full of guns and still seem to pull out the same two or three when I go to the range.I see some of you fellas have a whole cabinet full of marlins. I wish I did but finances won`t allow for that these days. I only own one marlin, a 336W 30-30 however it is my favorite rifle. Anyone else here have just one or am I the oddball here ??
