Finally did it, found a pristine older Marlin 336CS. Serial number identifies it as being made in 1993.
She's chambered in .35 Remington, which I didn't know much about. It's a 200 grain bullet traveling over 2000 fps.... should do a fine job at dropping hogs under 200 yards.
She came with this nice little leather cover for the stock, the scope and mount, and about 50 rounds of .35 to get me started.
