I don't know why I grabbed the old Marlin this morning. I usually prefer Winchesters.
This particular Marlin is a first year 336. I cut it to 16" and installed a Winchester 94 saddle ring many years ago. Built one for my dad from 1950 at the same time. They've been good shooters.

In the past, the Mini-30 has suffered from accuracy issues due to groove diameter issues. They bored them to .308 while the 7.62x39 is actually. ...
