    Marlin 336 vs. Winchester 94

    I own a 94. Love it. I own a Marlin 1895. Love it. I would at this point happily trade the 94 for a short barreled (16-1/2" and up) 336. The Marlins for me well. And I went to college with Frank Kenna's daughter.

    If you use it a lot, the Marlin may be more practical, because of the side eject that allows a standard scope mount. Also, they are nearly always excellent shooters.

    But an old Winchester is just very cool, and if you don't need a scope, probably shoots just as well.

    Marlin 336 vs. Winchester 94

    My Winchester with iron sights will make one ragged 3 shot hole, standing, off hand, at 50 yards.

    Marlin 336 vs. Winchester 94

    My answer, depends on which fits you better and is more comfortable. Both work great. Both shoot great.
    The caveat is that if you plan to add optics, I say go Marlin.

    I like the 94 but the 336 is more practical because of scope mounting with the side ejection and every now and then you run across a tack driver.

    I like winchester 94 because it is comfortable for me and I am using it since 5 years. Have purchased this from cheap bb guns store.

    My vote goes to Marlin. I have several including the 30-30 and 35 Remington. Both are good guns but the Marlin's just feel better to me. As mentioned above they also allow for a top mounted scope. In my opinion, the JM stamped Marlin's also hold their value better.
