This is one of the best hunting rifles on the market today. Not only is it amazingly beautiful but it shoots like a dream in regards to accuracy and the way it lays in your hands.

This classic american gun was released in the early 50's or late 40's depending on your stas and is one of the best selling Sprting Rifles ever.

The solid, flat top receiver and side ejection of the 336 allowed Marlin to sell to the growing number of American hunters who preferred optical sights over the traditional iron sights. In the mid-1950s Marlin incorporated its proprietary Micro-Groove rifling system into the Model 336. Microgroove rifling with many shallow grooves was designed to work better with jacketed bullets than more traditional rifling with fewer but deeper grooves originally developed for use with lead bullets

The design of the Marlin 336 allows the user to remove the lever pivot screw with a common screwdriver, allowing removal of the lever, bolt and ejector for maintenance. This design allows the user to clean the barrel from the breech, like a bolt action rifle, avoiding wear to the muzzle. Disassembly of the Winchester 1894 usually requires the services of a gunsmith; the '94 user seldom disassembles the rifle and usually cleans the barrel from the muzzle.
