    I was thinking about getting the 336, because it's a Marlin and it's in my price range.

    The sights are much better on the Winchester, than the Marlin.
    The later model Winchesters (Mod. 94 AE, AE stands for Angle eject)take a scope just fine, if that is what you want to do. Personally, I do not want a scope on a lever.

    I have a Marlin 30 A.s. in 30-30. Ive left it open sights and it is exclusivly my brush gun. I carry it any time that im scouting in the middle of hunting season. Ive got to get my gramp to put a peep on it, just something about target acquisition with peep sights vs. Iron.

    I have owned both, but I prefer the Marlin over the Winchester, as it readily lends itself to mounting a scope.

    I have a Winchester 94, open sight. I use it for walking and for drives. There aint nothing better for this type of fast shooting.
    If i'm sitting still over a greenfield, give me a bolt action.
    When on foot, I take the lever action.(or 12 ga 00)

    Marlin, but think .35 Remington instead of .30-30.

    I used one last season. It was pretty good, but I still prefer a bolt action.

    Winchester Model 94. After all it's the gun that won the west. I have a model 94 and have killed several deer with it. What I'm afraid you will find is that they are just not that practical. Nearly all lever actions have a hard trigger and make them less accurate. They are fun to play around with but I would suggest going ahead and get a bolt action for hunting purposes.

    Marlin 336 30-30 and you will never regret it.
    I got a nice one last year with marlin scope and sling for about $350 out the door.
    Using hornady leverevolution ammo it shot a little over 1" groups.
