I'm looking at getting a new lever action. It was the first gun after the .22 I ever hunted with back in my youth. My eye is currently on the Marlin 336C in .35 Rem. I have no specific purpose other than I don't have a lever action, so I want one (does one really need any more reason?). I recall shooting my dad's old Marlin .35 Rem to be pretty fun. I'll probably just leave it iron sights, but want the ability to scope it if I ever got the itch to do so. Before I commit, anyone have any other suggestions for a good general purpose lever action rifle?
