Two days ago I got my scout scope rail in the mail from XS Sights system, last night I mounted the scout rail and long eye relief scope (NCStar 3-9x32e) and just letting the SURE-LOK sit today. Also got my butt stock shell cartridge holder in and slipped it on as well. I'm going to look forward to it being my SHTF trunk gun/camping gun. Pics to follow...

Nice, I love my 336C. That XS Scout setup is really slick! Lets see some pictures! But I think that setup is deserving of something better than an NCStar scope!

@ptgarcia: I know what you mean! I would love to put better optics on it, but this is going to be a trunk gun that I can reach out to 150 yards. Since its going to be used and abused I won't feel bad when it gets banged up. With the long eye relief and illuminated reticle it will be a good scope for its role.

Looks good, how is the relief on that scope?

Relief is really good. At that position on the rail it makes two eyes open shooting really easy. it's an NCStar 3-9x32e illuminated scope.

My thoughts as well, is your sight picture ok with the scope that far forward?

Ha! Answered at same time asked! Cool deal and nice looking rifle! Feels good to have one you can bang around without concern, eh?!

Yep, between buying the rifle, scout rail,scope, and buttstock cartridge holder total was around $500 TOTAL. So if it gets banged around..oh well. It's a trunk gun!

Eye relief is really great! Two eyes open quick acquisition so far has been really easy. Plus, with the illuminated scope reticle the crosshairs really stand out against a dark backdrop.

I like it! Are you going to get a Skinner or XS rear receiver sight for it?

( For backup, in case you run into problems in the field with the scope. )

I fell for this gimick over 10 years ago and was very happy to resell the parts and return my 336 back to it's functional form.

I felt like such a moron.

What's works one may not work for someone else. Sorry you didn't like your setup. Any particular reason why you didn't like your Marlib setup this way?

I'm thinking more and more about a red dot for my 45/70 personally.


*edit* my brain isnt working today.

@zfields: I was thinking red dot too. I chose the scope over the red dot after I looked at my friends Enfield with a scout mount and long eye relief scope. I figured I wouldn't have to worry about batteries with a scope.

Looks great!

I'd like to pick up one of the youth model 336s and do this to it. With the 16" barrel it would make a sweet little scout setup.

I have a similar setup on a marlin 1894c but with a leupold 2.5x. I love this gun and my wife loves shooting .357 out of it. 151010

And based on the fact that it is installed on the left side, I have to ask, are you a lefty? And if so, how does the 336 work for you? (I've got lefty kids, and I try to keep an eye out for stuff that will work for them) - Thanks

Nice rifle.

Nice rifle.

I am a southpaw and all I did was flip the buttstock cartridge holder 180 degrees around and poke a hole through the nylon to allow the sling swivel on the buttstock through to sort of anchor the sleeve to it so it won't slide around. I find the 336 alright to shoot as a lefty. I get some brass back at me on occasion, but not enough for me to not enjoy getting one or shooting one. On my reloads I stick the buttstock into my left side on my ribs, swivel the gun 180 degrees CCW and feed it with my trigger finger. I've practiced this way so it works for me.

I'm a lefty also and the 336 works great for me.

I have the 1895gbl guide gun, the length is perfect

I'm a southpaw shooter. I've had this Marlin 336 30.30 since 1984. I just put a thumb extension on the hammer for easy access with the scope mounted on the factory tappings. This made a fun Hog Gun
