Marlin 336 v Marlin 1895

Postby TreeStandSniper » Mon Dec 02, 2013 4:01 pm

I love bow hunting, but damn it sometimes I just get tired of watching my gorgeous trophy walk by 100 yards away. I'm looking into buying a Marlin lever action and wanted to see if anyone had strong opinions between the 336 and 1895. Also, anyone against marlin for any reason?

Biggest driver will be what cartridge you want to shoot. Otherwise they're pretty time tested actions.

The big difference is like Dan said it comes down to caliber. I have a 336 in 35 Rem and its great deer rifle.

I have both , a 336- 30/30 and a 1895G -45/70. Deer in deep woods still hunting ,I use the 336, will do the job great, Ammo is cheap. 45/70 I use for bear, and in a pinch for deer. Ammo is not cheap. Personaly i would recomend the 336 in either 30/30 or 35 rem. you can't go wrong with either.

I've owned both, as well as several other caliber Marlins but over the years they have all gone away, I do still have a favorite Browning BLR in .358 Win that has taken several Deer and Elk. Between the two you list I would go with the .30-30 (or .35 Rem) and I would look for an older gun in good condition. They just feel smoother than the newer ones to me.
