have been an addict of 30-30 levers for 65 years.
have 1 94 win xtr that just showed up in my case not too long ago.
next to it is a 1951 94 rifle
on the other side is a 1926 99 savage takedown 30-30.
snug up to that one is another 99 303 savage which is just a much cooler 30-30

I would not drill a pre 64 . That's what post 64's and Marlins are for.

I have a Winchester 94, and 336 and a Savage 99 in 30-30

The Winchester is the lightest and the most sexy
The Marlin 336 is the the best all arounder of the bunch
The 99 is by far the most accurate and has the most panache and can shoot pointed bullets................


If you find yourself in a hole....quit digging

The first rifle I carried deer hunting was my oldest brothers 336 30-30. Since then I've had 1 336 in .35, an 1894 44 mag and now a 1895 and about 3 or 4 94's in 30/30. I might have a slight preference for the 94's in general. They are all spectacular but I think I like the current 94 best of all of them. It's an angle eject XTR Deluxe with a scope. More than accurate enough and better looking to my eye than any of the others.


Those who are always shooting off at the mouth usually aren't shooting straight.

I've got two 94's, one with a receiver sight, the other with a red dot and a scoped Marlin. I never could stomach those ugly ass Savage 99's.

I’ve got the Marlin 336 but I wouldn’t mind having a model 94 Winchester again.

Friends, it's hard to beat one like this for hunting in the woods as I do. The 3x Weaver with post reticle helps with my old eyes!

Very nice Joe. Rarely do you see someone with one like it now a days. Most of the younger hunters have the synthetic bolt guns with way too much glass.

Now friend Blackheart, it looks like we need to have a come to Jesus talk to straighten out your twisted thinking on the subject! LOL

That's hunting rifle for sure, and perfect for these mountains here in KY! My model 64 Win & Williams Sight is my favorite rifle for here. But I see me using my 06 & 3-9× more in my old age!

A waffletop Marlin 336A with a good, steel, Redfield 70 or Lyman 66 receiver sight.
Easy to maintain, accurate, fine handling and balance. They also happen to be gorgeous...

Winchester model 64 rifle with a 24” barrel. Other than that....a Marlin Texan. Total opposites however both are great in my eyes.
Thanks, Tom

Anybody who has spent time with the Marlin 336 family, the Savage 99 family, the Winchester 94 family, and even the Mossberg 464/472/479 family of lever action rifles chambered in 30-30 in unlikely to care for anything made by Henry.
