    Could this be the same gun?

    That's nice looking glockman100. A man can't have too many lever guns.
    So who is this Will that everybody fires at, what did he do, and how come he's not dead yet??

    ’fraid not. The Texan has a straight stock like a Winchester 94.

    I was surprised by the number of guns for sale on a sight makers site. Their descriptions aren't very detailed but the pricing looked pretty good. The inlay on that one caught my eye.

    The new Henry Lever guns look awesome. They basically revised the M88 idea, box magazine fed, and they even have a 6.5 creed more.

    but I've always wanted a 336 in 30/30

    Nice.

    I have a 308 Winchester Winchester Model 88.

    It’s not too bad at all.

    Super fun to shoot.

    I like that. Do you have any Marlin lever guns?

    I have a 336 I got from Bass on a steal of deal. It was made under the Remington ownership. I have had no issues with it though I haven't run it hard.

    Care to share your thoughts on quality and why you are liking it?

    I have a 44 1894P, and an earlier 1894 with micro groove barrel. Also have a standard 336 in 30-30, and have owned a 1895 in 45-70.
    The Winchester’s are more desirable in one aspect because they are lighter and more compact and have a straight stock.

    But I believe the Marlin overall is s better, smoother rifle.

    The “ Remlins” as they call the new Marlins today are good rifles, and there are pros and cons to the old vs new.

    The old JM stamped rifles drilled and tapped on the side of the receiver to accept a Lyman Aperture sight, which I prefer.
    The new Marlins have Ballard cut rifling which is more user friendly for shooting lead bullets.

    The rifle that is the subject of this thread appeals to me in 3 ways;

    Its purdy
    Its a 30-30
    And it has that straight stock like a Winchester 94.

    If you get one, you won't regret it.

    That Texan Deluxe is a good looking lever action @glockman10mm .

    My memory is a little faded, but I seem to recall that Lane Simpson wrote an article years ago about bear hunting with a Marlin Texan chambered in .35 Remington when he was just a young man in Tennessee.

    I like the way the straight stock lever actions look and handle, but for me the pistol grip levers are easier to shoot as my right wrist doesn't bend too well anymore to grip the straight stocks.
