    30-30. 336 is only offered in 30-30 for the Dark.

    have plenty of 45-70s, 30-30 is easier to have a multiple gun suppressor for.

    Saw one of these in person at Christmas in a local shop in MN. Shop owner said it was ordered for Brock Lesner who does live in that area.....

    Beautiful rifle.

    The 45-70 version is on my list.

    Congrats. I think you'll love it.

    I went back and forth on the 30-30 or the 45-70.
    Suppressor compatibility was a major deciding factor. And I only have one 30-30 and it is 48 years old. Still kills the majority of my deer, but it has earned a break.

    I totally missed the 336 in the title.
    I saw the dark and immediately thought of the 1895.

    That’s ok, everyone does;)
    The Hornady 30-30 175 grain subsonic ammo looks pretty awesome

    These interest me greatly. I would have went 1895 as the 45-70 is an extremely versatile round.

    Please do a table top review upon unboxing. I would love to hear fit n finish thoughts.

    If you dont mind could you give a ball park price? MSRP for both the 1895 and 336 is in the 950 range I believe. I've seen 750 advertised but not in stock.
