I sold the Henry Big Boy, but I was still interested in a lever gun. This Marlin 336 Dark in 30-30 Win fit the bill! It's a good all-purpose caliber, is ready for optics, and it just looks cool!
A few additions to the 336: a buttstock cartidge holder, and a Burris Fulfield II 3-9x40 scope on a Burris quick disconnect mount. The scope is a little overpower for the gun but I'll manage!
