Marlin Model 336: Long Live the Lever Gun! — SHOT Show 2023 by LEVI SIM

Marlin’s new 336 in .30-30 is a classic deer rifle.

Marlin’s new Model 336 is everything you’d want a .30-30 lever action to be but includes all the refinements of the 21st century. The 336 has a smooth action, beautiful stock, and modern fittings.

All the classic features, including Marlin’s gold trigger.

The steel receiver is blued and tapped for scope rings. The 20″ blued barrel includes a leaf rear sight and hooded front sight. The lever and trigger guard are more refined than other lever guns with a chamfered edge all the way around.

Although it has a tube magazine under the barrel, you can only load the gun using the side gate on the receiver. Of course, it includes Marlin’s gold trigger.

The 336 is gate-loaded only.
.30-30 has come a long way and there are modern loads with more punch than in the past.
Blued barrel, hooded front sight, and full-length tube magazine.
A tight strap and sling stud at the front of the walnut forend.

The stock is all made from American walnut with classic checkering in a modern design that genuinely improves grip. It’s just a little more modern overall.

For instance, the barrel band is recessed in the forend for a tight fit, and it includes a sling stud. It’s also got a logo’d butt cap under the pistol grip and a durable butt pad.

The checkering is excellent and the classic butt sport’s Marlin’s logo.
The stock is beautiful American walnut with a cushy butt pad.

Marlin’s new Model 336 will be available in the Spring of 2023 and is expected to be under $1,000.
