Am fond of my little Glenfield 30-30. Shoots great. I've got an older 3x Leupold on it now, but the Williams receiver sight worked fine too. JM stamped of course.

Really like the looks of the 2/3rds magazine!

bought a 30 new in 66. sold it for diapers in 70. got a AS in 84-85.
first time out i jumped a buck riding a doe. about bent the trigger trying to make it fire. finally remembered the cross safety. got the buck running away.

The main difference in the Glenfield variants of the 336 were stained birched stocks which usually had impressed checkering, and cheaper and simpler sights.

Often, instead of impressed checkering they used deeply embossed animal images in the grip area, which were, frankly, kind of tacky, but somehow appealing. Kind of like a .22 rifle of the 60s era.

As well, the ramp front sight was replaced with a dovetailed gold bead type. Just as good, and maybe better. The rear sight was an all-stamped steel open sight, as used on .22 rifles.

The changes did not affect their quality, strength, or accuracy.
And, I actually liked the sights and the stocks.

I never have been around a 35 R.E.M. Glenfield.

That would be very cool.

whenever i hear the term "truck gun" the Glenfield comes to mind. i carried one in my truck for years. someone decided they wanted my truck and got the Glenfield as a bonus. it went to Mexico i am pretty sure.just another treinta-treinta.

An SC is a 336 not a Glenfield
