Hi guys I was out shooting for the first time at a very nice outdoor shooting range. The fellow next to me I got acquainted with him we both were shooting Marlin 30-30 Lever actions. He brought out a little Marlin 336 I have never seen before. He said several years ago he bought this rifle at Walmart. A Marlin Cross Bolt Safety 336 JM stamped. Straight Grip stock, with the half length magazine tube and either a 16.5 to a 18 inch barrel!! I have seen straight griped stocks but usually a 20-22 inch barrel. This rifle he had replaced the forearm stock with a slimmer sized one other then that it was totally stock very cool little rifle.
