    I'm going to need a new job, between Henry's new loading gate and Marlin's new "Dark" 336 rifle, I could be going into deep debt. the Marlin is out in 30-30, but will be releasing it in 45-70 in mid summer with other cals. to follow.

    The only thing that would be better, is if someone could make a .444 marlin that will also shoot .44 mags and.44 specials.

    Traded it for a Pedersoli Sharps. At least it wasn’t for a Glock 40.
    There’s a 35 Remington straight stocked 336 at Outback arms right now. $500

    I’m not a fan of the tube loading but it appears their rifles are leagues ahead of what Remington is pulling off right now.
    They have improved a ton but their wood selection and wood fit is still really bad.
    I know Henry has some new rifles with a loading gate. Maybe if they come out with a pistol caliber I’ll buy one.

    Yeah I believe the big boy in 327? Has the side load gate and the tube I when I heard that I was gonna wait till they eventually expanded to other calibers but i got the itch for a lever gun and couldn't wait

    I guess I can't argue with that.
    The 336 was the first rifle I bought with my own money waay back in '88. I needed something to go deer hunting with in NY state with some buddies. My dad offered his 25-06 to use but I wanted to have my own gun. Choosing a gun/caliber back in the old days was way harder without the sage advice from the internet we have today.
    Me: "I need something to kill deer with"
    Hardware store employee, Kevin(who had an ffl) : "Here. This kills deer." hands me an 870
    Me :" I'm going to NY"
    Kevin : "here. This kills deer in NY" hands me the 336
    Me : "thanks" I proceed to go kill deer.
    Still have it. Still kill deer with it. I also shoot silhouette with 204 gr RNGC propelled by Unique.

    I would go for a 327 if it shot 32 mag and 32 long. Might to too hard to get that much length range though.

    Love it. You can’t beat a good Marlin whatever the configuration.
    I have an 1894 in 44 special on the way.
