    My black rifle

    I've posted this rifle on several other forums; so, some of you may have already seen it, but I just like too much not to post it here too. :)

    It's a Marlin 336 in .30-30 that I bought almost 15 years or so ago when I was in high school. I went off to college and left it at my folks place, and it sat in a gun cabinet for a while with no TLC. I was back home one day and took it out to find a light surface rust on it. I cleaned and oiled it, but the finish had suffered some damage.

    I began looking into having it refinished and found http://www.shootiniron.com/ The original stock also had some damge from having been carried in a gun rack in a truck (previous owner); so, I decided to replace the stock as well.

    I had all of the surface and the bolt parkerized in black, and I found a Ramline synthetic stock for it that weighed 30% less than the wood stock.

    I have it topped with a Bushnell 1.75-5x32 scope with Leupold quick disconnect rings ro that I can get to the iron sights if need be. I also have a 9 round butt cuff on it, and a 20 round ammo belt. I adapted traditional combat shotgun loading techniques for use with the levergun, and I can keep up a good rate of accurate fire.

    I really like the setup. It has been dubbed as the Redneck Tactical 336. :)

    CE - that is nice, nice, nice!!
    Redneck Tactical 336.
    Haha - rather like that! You have a very unique piece there - and actually I like the way it has turned out - as you obviously do too!

    I have levers in .44 mag and .357 mag but must say - have often thought of getting one too in ''thuddy-thuddy''.

    Next year. I think I'm done with gun purchases for the year, save for a P22 for Christmas 2005. Dad really wants one for no good reason and with all he does, I think he deserves it!

    I have a NEF Handi Rifle to scratch the .45-70 itch.

    I love leveraction rifles, and I have come close to buying a Marlin 1894 in .357 several times.

    Thanks for all of the kind words.

    Wow we think alike. I want a lever gun, and a scout rifle. Since I've purchased that 629 I must just have to take the plunge and get one of these:

    I figure I'll get an AR15 first though, because I anticipate them being banned outright in 2009.

    lakota - welcome dude - I doubt I have said such as yet!
    I'll bet that Number One in 45/70 stings the shoulder!
    Haha - I will confess - you know when it goes bang!

    Last week I put some stout loads thru (52 grains 3031 shoving a 405 Lasercast) ... and as I only had T-shirt on - did resort to a makeshift ''wuss pad''! LOL. I folded up a spare T-shirt as an extra padding!!

    It is (for me) worth it tho - despite as yet having some scope issues - I have just gotten from Ruger a set of concentric rings - which I hope will enable me to get the thing sighted in better.

    It has a majestic ''superiority'' - somehow. Very ''assertive'' !! I guess the likes of me qualify as ''masochist'' material

    Ooooo, I like the look of that. Why didn't I do that before I sold mine a few weeks ago? :doh (2):

    Damn, that almost makes me want to go out and find a nice little lever to mutilate.

    Of course, I'm tapped out - just ordered a Vector HK51 "pistol" to SBR and a second Uzi and waiting to see what the abomination of 'pitted slide' $259 Sig 226s look like when they get in at the local dealer. God help me. My budget is stinging.
