Detailed Review

The Marlin 308MX 70491 is a lever action rifle designed for hunters and enthusiasts. It features a durable solid steel receiver that is drilled and tapped for scope mounts, making it easy to attach an optic of your choice for improved accuracy. The receiver is also polished to a reflective finish, giving the rifle a sleek appearance.

The 308MX 70491 has a 22” barrel made from high-quality stainless steel that resists corrosion and ensures long-lasting performance. The barrel has a 1:10 twist rate, making it optimal for stabilizing heavier bullets, which aids in increasing its accuracy. It also comes with a hooded front sight and an adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight, allowing for quick and precise target acquisition.

This rifle has a seven-round capacity and uses a tubular magazine that loads through the side gate. The tubular magazine makes it easy to reload while maintaining your position, especially if you're hunting in a thick brush or open field.

The rifle features a smooth walnut stock finished with a durable satin coating that can withstand extreme weather conditions. The stock has a straight grip design, making it comfortable to hold and provides a firm grip, especially when shooting offhand. The stock also has a solid rubber recoil pad that helps reduce felt recoil, making it easier to shoot for longer periods.

The Marlin 308MX 70491 rifle is chambered for .308 Winchester cartridge, one of the most popular cartridges used among hunters and shooters. The .308 cartridge is known for its accuracy and stopping power, making it ideal for taking down game animals like deer, elk, and moose.

In conclusion, the Marlin 308MX 70491 is an excellent rifle for hunting and target shooting enthusiasts who appreciate the craftsmanship and quality design. It's well-balanced, easy to use, and has a fast trigger pull. Its accuracy, reliability, and versatility make it suitable for both beginners and experienced shooters alike.

Very sweet shooting rifle. Killed a doe at 490 yards in Nebraska, October, 2010. A package deal with Hornady Lever action ammo. Not just a brush gun good for 300 yards. Would recommend for anyone shooting out to 500 yards using a scope.
