PostSubject: The Ol' 30-30   August 5th 2009, 7:26 pm

Took my first ever rifle out. Marlin 336 30-30 with some new ammo. Winchester Super X 150gr Power-Point. I ended up shooting a 1" 3 shot group @ 100 yards with this rifle an the factory open sights. I was pretty amazed and plan on restoring the rifle stock soon. I havent shot it in such a long time. I just wish the trigger was as good as the trigger on my Accura :lol2:

I plan on taking some pics of the rifle tomorrow before i strip the stock down. Do a little before and After show.

I once owned the same 30-30. Hard to beat the accuracy you can get with Marlin's micro-groove.

That's one excellent rifle. I am a major Marlin fan. I did a rebuild/redesign on one a few years ago and it is my go-to hunting rifle.

I took a stainless 30-30 XLR, replaced the barrel with a 356 winchester in a heavier barrel format, chopped it to 22", then dropped in a full length magazine tube, and matted all the stainless. I also replaced the trigger with a Wild West trigger and honed it a bit to 2# with no creep and almost no travel and no Marlin trigger flop.

The net result was a very accurate 356 minimal reflective stainless 7 shooter with excellent knock down power.

For those that have not messed with a 356 winchester...basically think of a 35 remining plus 400-500 fps.
