    Whats the difference between 336 sold at Wal Mart vs gun store besides price

    Not much really. The one Walmart usually carries is a 336w. Its still a very good rifle.

    Well all the newer ones are made by Remington. They sure have gone up in price over the years (but hasn't everything?) I'd prefer to have an older one. Mine was made in the 80's and given to me by my dad as my first deer rifle when I was 12. And that is one gun I will NEVER sell!

    Not a thing.

    Box stores buy guns by the truck loads (as in 18 wheelers) in one purchase and get a price break.

    gun shops might buy a case or two at the most and pay a higher price.

    That's all.

    Correct - they are the same guns. If you read Remington's quarterly statements you will see that Walmart is their largest distributor of guns and ammo accounting for more than 20% of their annual sales. :22:

    All things being equal (model ) Nothing. Except the price many vary.

  8. I have a 1983 Marlin 3030, shoots MOA with Federal Fusion 150gr. Its a keeper. I thought it was an 86 till I ran the serial number again.

    click on the three line box looking thing in the upper right hand corner, then scroll down the box that pops up to parts.

    they better be for that price.

    it's too bad it takes a custom maker to put together what Marlin used to be able to do in the factory for 3-400$

    While I like to look at pictures of Grizzly Guns as much as the next fella ... I'm not certain if you took a new 336BL ($516), added an action/trigger job, through bolt-stock system, XS rail & rings, and cerakote job, you'd get to $2250 as fast as they do on their 336 Outdoor Guide Scout. Personally, I'd probably just add a Skinner set to it, hand it to a competent smith for a little stone work on the action, and spend the remaining $1600 on ammo over the course of a few lifetimes, and call it good, or skip the smith and shoot a few hundred rounds through it until the trigger settles in. I picked up a pawn shop 336 (JM) for under $300, un-bubba'd it, found a beautifully figured stock hidden under a rattle can attack, lovingly rubbed it with the right things in the right places, and now have a drop dead gorgeous, smooth cycling 336 for just at $300 outlay plus my time. You can't buy a story at Wal-mart.
