Marlin Marlin 70520 336W Lever .30-30 Winchester 20" 6+1, Dark Laminated Stock, Blued

The Model 336 family is one of the most popular hunting rifles in North America. It embodies Marlin's dedication to pinpoint accuracy and good looks. These popular carbines and rifles have a hardwood or laminated hardwood stock, six-shot capacity, adjustable rear and bead front sights and the receiver is tapped for a scope mount. Some feature a gold plated steel trigger and a blued steel barrel band. A barrel with micro-groove rifling makes it exceptionally handy in the brush and deadly accurate.

Nope, it is short enough for youth to shoot. Very good "first rifle" as it uses similar sights as most pellet rifles and .22

No, that would be the 336Y. I want to see one though, it might be a real handy little pack rifle like the Winchester 94 Trapper.

If you want the most accurate at distance for deer, pick up Leverevalution by Hornady (or Zombie).
answered 1 year, 10 months ago
By
rick1a
answer 3
There isn't necessarily a "maximum killing range" for any animal. I've put deer down at 400 yards with one shot, and I've had deer get up and run after being hit at 150. It all comes down to shot placement, but it'll do the job. I've found that you're more limited by terrain and vegetation than distance. As for grain, the higher the grain count the more power the round has, so the further it will go. I shoot 165gr because they have more stopping power and still travel far enough.

answer 4
I dropped a deer in it's tracks at nearly 200 yards with 170 grain soft tip round nose. The grain you use will depend on what you intend to shoot with it. For smaller game you will want 150gr, for bigger game 170gr.

answer 5
If you use standard 30-30 ammo the limit would be 150 yards due to the trajectory of standard ammo. If you use Hornady Leverevolution ammo then you can extend the range to almost 300 yards because of the spitzer type shape of the bullet. Hope this answers your question.

In short the answer is yes. I have used a30/30 for years in Michigan deer. Depending on your location 30/30 is a fine choice. I also use mine in NC to hunt deer. If your after larger game or hunting out west you might want to consider a higher caliber rifle

it'll drop pretty much anything with the right shot. it'll go a long way. further then any shot you'll take in the woods. If your looking for open field long distance move to the 30-06

It will kill a bear 100yds. or less for sure with 150gr., been there done that 3 times.

answer 3
It depends on your ability to shoot well, and the size of the bear. I would not recommend it for a Kodiak. charging you, with a 3/4 ton mass.

The trajectory of a .30-30 depends on many factors, including the bullet weight (170 gr or 150 gr).

Remember that the 30 WCF (modern .30-30) has been around for well over one-hundred years, and has harvested more deer than any other cartridge in existence.

answer 4
a bear? ... no, not unless you're fairly close (maybe a little too close for comfort?) and place your shot exceptionally well. As far as distance, I've done 400+ yards with mine, no problem, but it does tend to drop your shot a little after about 250-300. Depending on where you live and where you're shooting, though, you're mostly going to be limited by terrain and vegetation over distance. It's a great brush gun. As far as cost, it varies from state to state but in WY it's running $350

You will need rings to fit scope to rifle. The rifle is already drilled and tapped. Remove (4) screws on top and mount rings/scope. Walmart
associates in gun department will help you with what you need. Easy to do once you decide on a scope.

The description says drilled and tapped, so there should be either 2 or 4 little holes on top of the receiver they may have set screws in them, you will need to purchase scope ring adapters if your scope rings dont include them. also being a 30-30 i would buy see thur scope rings so you can still use your iron sites for those quick close shots. good hunting

The W refers to the walnut finish stock, which is just Marlin's way of differentiating between the four models of 336 they have (the others are cut-comb, blued steel, and nickel-plated#. As to the trigger, the factory preset is a bit loose for some, but you can tighten the trigger spring #or get a gunsmith to do it) to your preference.

Marlin 336w has a straight stock rather than a pistol grip stock, and yes the trigger is supposed to be loose when not in the firing position.

336 is the model number, and the W stands for walnut. So, model number and finish. And the trigger isn't supposed to be loose, and there should be very little "slack" in the trigger- because it uses a hammer to strike the firing pin. Hope this helps!

I had the same problem when I first bought my marlin. You have to snap the action quickly and it will work fine. A winchester owner told me that so they must have the same problem though they are very different actions.

I had the same problem with my 336 after the first few shots and I had to take the bolt out, remove the extractor, and bend it a bit so that it was tight against the bolt. It works fine now.

I don't know why a brand new gun would have this issue, but it was quite easy to fix.
