    Hey guys here are two very good looking 30-30's and neither are really expensive, so which rifle do you choose?

    You can't go wrong with a Marlin lever.

    Marlin is the only way to go
  4. Hands down, the Marlin. The one I had seemed to have a meat radar, couldn't miss if I tried.
  5. I have one, a Marlin bought about 30 sum odd years ago darn good rifle, havent missed a deer with it yet! oh yeah, iron sights only

    Marlin all the way.

    I've been using mine for the past few years during deer season, and now with the new Hornady Ballistic Tip 30-30 ammo, I'll be using it for a lot longer.

    I've got a fixed power 3x scope mounted on mine.
  7. Marlin all the way. Mine has an old Williams peep sight on it. That's ok right? Cyrille.Lol
    I know mine didn't feel right with a scope on it. Didn't look right either.

    I had a Mossberg 30/30, Very nice rifle, but, the Marlin with the "micro-groove" barrel is more accurate.

    i saw the title and I thought the Poll would compare the Winchester 94 to the Marlin 336.

    I was surprised to see Mossberg on here, I think Winchester is more comp for the Marlin.

    I myself was wanting to buy a Winchester 94 for the longest time. My friend had one, and I borrowed it for a day of shooting cans. The top eject got on my nerves quickly, and when I bought the Marlin 336 I fell in love. It is hands down the best affordable .30-30.
  12. The Mossberg is to new, though I wish them success with there new leveraction 30-30. If I were buying a 30-30 it would be a Marlin.
    I'ved owned 2 of them and I wish I had kept my first one because it was my first centerfire rifle when I was a kid.

    Lastly there a pleasure to carry and they fit me perfectly and I own a Marlin in another caliber...A.H
  13. Henry .30/30 Lever action but I wouldn't knock Marlin or Mossberg both nice guns.

    I believe I'd go a tad higher and snatch up a Marlin .308MX. It's performance in a traditional lever gun is unequaled in other traditional lever rifles, other than the big bore levers.
  15. The Marlin. BTW, the Henry's have more problems over the long run. I shoot SASS and every shoot a Henry breaks down.
