I've been looking for a Marlin 336 for a project gun for two years now. I don't have any pictures to post yet, but I picked up a Western Auto Revelation (Marlin 336) a couple weeks ago for a couple hundred bucks. When I ran across this one, I knew I had found the gun I've been looking for. The wood isn't in good shape but the lock up is good and the lever is as smooth as glass. I haven't decided for sure if I'm going to have a gunsmith reblue it. The blueing on it is thin but still serviceable. I'm going cowboy tactical with it. No, I'm not going to do a cheesy Mossberg copy. Instead, I found a Ramline black synthetic stock, bought an XS Sights scout rail, and I'm going to mount a pistol scope on it. It will be set up like a scout rifle when I'm done with her. Once I get back home in Missouri, I'll post photos. Unfortunately, I got stuck in Alabama after my grandad's funeral because of Isaac.
