Can anyone tell me what the factory trigger pull weight is on a 336 30/30 please?

I really think that could vary widely on Marlin 336's. I have a sample of three and they were all over the place.

I bought one of the last of the Remington made Marlin 336s not that long ago in 35Rem, and the trigger was horrendous. I've read on the internet that some triggers could be 7-8lbs - I never measured mine but had no trouble believing that this was also possible in my case. I bought one of those Wild West Trigger Happy replacement triggers - it wasn't cheap but was an easy drop-in fix, and now feels "hunting normal" around the 2-3lb mark.

That's a bold assertion. Point out where you think I lied.

Over the years I have had Marlins run from under 3# to almost 6#.
They are not real precision guns. Fortunately there are lots of shops that can improve them. I bet someone near you can help

Thanks for the replies guys. I suspected they had a lot of varied pull weight but I like to confirm my suspicions lol

As said they vary quite a bit. Fortunately they are simple and easy to work so that they shine like a new penny.

I have JM’s and Remington Marlins. I don’t recall any that had poor triggers. I guess I never worried much about it.
I think my Winchester 1894 32 Special’s trigger and my 4 digit serial number 1892 Winchester may have the best triggers for lever guns that I own. But the Marlins and my 99 are not objectionable.

2nd owner of a 336 and the older gentlemen I bought from did not say anything about trigger work. Just about 4 lbs.

My JM stamped 336 in 30-30 is 3.7 lb. Would not want it any lower in a lever gun.

All of my Marlin lever guns have triggers that break in the 3.5-4lb range. I’ve been pretty darn happy with em.

I just measured a couple of JM Marlin's. The 35 Remington trigger pull is 4 lb. The 30-30 is 5 lb.
