View Full Version : need help with my first lever

February 5, 2006, 11:30 PM
I've decided on 30-30 so we can get that out of the way. I'm trying to choose between winchester 94 and marlin 336AS. I can get both at walmart pretty cheap. I've handled them both and I'm not real crazy about the whhole action dropping out (seems like to many moving parts). but a lot of people seem to like them. I just need some general guidance.

Winchester is no longer manufactured. Buy the Winny.

Function wise, I don't think it matters much.

Are you planning on mounting a scope on the rifle? If you are go with the Marlin if not both are great rifles. Handle both and see which one you like the feel of best and buy that one. Also check pawn shops used .30-30 rifles can be found pretty reasonable.
