NRA Gun of the Week: Marlin 336 Dark
NRA Gun of the Week: Marlin 336 Dark
This latest .30-30 Win.-chambered lever-action rifle is a viable tool with myriad purpose, too. Home defenders, hunters and plinkers alike will find the utilitarian approach Marlin employed as modern and practical. The side-ejecting Model 336 features a solid, flat-top receiver that was design for use with optics, and the Dark series, in its factory form, comes standard with XS Sights Lever Rail, which houses an adjustable aperture rear sight. A large front sight post, with a single white line, is perched atop the 16.25” barrel just rear of the 5/8×24 t.p.i muzzle threads.
Parkerizing was used as the treatment to minimize the risk of metal corrosion. The phosphating process increases wear-resistance, too. Marlin’s Parkerization process renders a matte-black finish for the Marlin 336 Dark. Painted hardwood chosen for the buttstock and fore-end features a black-web-textured finish. The painted texturing provides users of the carbine with assurance when handling, especially when moist conditions are encountered.
Marlin included cordage wrapping on its big-loop lever, and a sling woven of the same paracord-type material. A rifle capable of withstanding abuse through excessive use, Marlin turned out the lights with its latest adaptation of its Model 336.

So cool. WANT.
Really love this gun but looks like the parkarized finish isnt very good. Guns appear to be all scratched up by just loading the mag 🙁 think I will go with the stainless version
I wonder how hard it would be to recolour the wood, and then change out the paracord bits..
…I want purple.
purple and black would be a nice combo aesthetic.
On the short list, for sure
I have the dark 1894 in 357, love it!
0:49 Thats an 1894 fellas.
Lever actions are flawed, pumped are not as much..watch the video and see why.
IMHO, this latest version looks like SHIT…!!!
Nice. Do they come in .35 Remington?
Nice rifle, though for defensive use I prefer the smaller and lighter Marlin 1894 in .44 Mag and .357 Mag, which is also a lot less likely to jam if you drop it in dust, dirt, mud or sand as its ejection port is covered when the bolt is closed (unlike the 336 series rifles). The .30-30 WCF round also produces a lot of muzzle blast in short barrels.
This channel is basically a white guy talking about other white guy’s guns.
Marlin should make a mag fed lever gun. Id buy it
I have never seen a 30/30 cycle so fast. Normaly you have to work them. This cycles like a 22 or 44 mag. Nice
