    Congrats and enjoy your new Marlin. I am very partial to them and own four, two in .30-30, one .44 mag, and one .35. My primary hunting rifle is a Marlin 336 XLR .30-30 and it has put a lot of meat on the table.
    Thanks. I'm already eye balling a 1895.

    Just an update, took it to the range Saturday and it functioned great. I ran three boxes of Core Lokt through it. The trigger is stiffer then I would like but maybe it will loosen up some in time. The sights were a bit of an issue as I didn't have a brass punch to adjust windage but got it close enough till I get back out there. Haven't decided if I'll keep the stock sights or go with one of the peephole versions. No rush on that though, I'm enjoying it a bunch as is. They are really fun rifles to shoot, so much so that I just had 360 rounds delivered and I think I'll be going through them real quick. I really gotta start reloading!

    Have wanted one of these since I was a kid... Asked my parents for it on my 13,14,15 and 16th birthdays to no avail... But like you I have bought a lot of other stuff first. Think its time to pull the trigger on one!

    my eyes aren't what they used to be and worried about the sights which are an issue for a lot of us more 'middle aged' guys.
    I'll give the stock sights a chance but I've been eyeballing( pun intended) skinner sights. I've also heard about the Williams. How come you went with those? I'm just trying to decide which brand to use and it seems many go with skinner. I know I don't want a scope. I shoot my M1A pretty good with the stock peep so I should be able to get a good shot at a deer vitals with maybe the buckhorn or even better the peep at 100-150 yards.
    I have one in .35 Rem. It has a 4x Redfield on it with Kwik Site see through mounts, works well for me

    The purveyors of ridiculous clothing would faint. I was at A&F when they were a real outfitter, amazing store back then

    They were $40 at Amazon and I could get them quickly. If they suck, then I will spend the money on Skinners. The stock sights are horrible for me.

    That's good, by Remlin I meant one of the crap quality ones. Can't remember how long ago, but I was looking at a marlin, and was told the quality went way downhill, so I passed

    Looks good, glad to see/hear they're finally making decent guns.

    The Marlin Guide is looking pretty fine and might have to bring one home, not too soon though.

    You don't need an intervention - you need a bigger safe.
