    Just a hunch, MattNH, but I'm guessing you're a fan of the Marlin brand. I have 2 lever action Marlins in .35 Rem manufactured in the '70's. Always like the triggers on those.

    Don’t currently own a Marlin, but want a Guide Gun or GBL in 45-70. Great-lookin’ lever guns. Love the GBL’s big loop, pistol grip, and ammo capacity.

    My first real (not milsurp) rifle was a 336 in 35 Remington. The first Rifle I bought after I lost my firearms in a house fire was a 1895G in 450 Marlin. Unfortunately I have neither now. The first one lost in the fire, the second one sold to pay medical bills. I liked those rifles though.

    I want a 336 XLR. I'm just leary of purchasing one since Remington took over what with the quality control issues. But Remington owned up to the issues and claim they fixed them. My nephew recently bought a 1895 in 45-70. By all accounts it is a very nice rifle. I have not seen it yet, but just maybe Marlin/Remington has it right. Might be time to take the plunge.

    What is it with all the guns getting smaller? Glad I got mine when they still made them for people over 5 ft tall. After all that's why I have the recoil pad is to extend the length of the stock another 1/2 inch to make it comfortable. ;-)

    A friend offered me a JM marked 41 mag for a whole lot of money. I thought he had lost his marbles. I looked them up and they are.......worth a whole lot of money!

    Yes, they are like hens teeth. Mine has had less than 10 rounds through it. Bought it new back in the 90's when they did the small run of them.

    Back when I was shooting the 41Mag, I owned the Marlin to go with me Blackhawk. Like to many other guns they got lost in trades.:Angie:

    I did not notice it was in the rim fire section until you mentioned it. Still, a good subject to discuss.

    Since it is the rim fire thread, I own a 39A with four digit serial number that is a tac driver. The serial number has a Y prefix so it would be made in1964.
