You need to fit the stock to the gun. Not get A longer screw!

Looks great so far.

It is fitted to the gun. The metal parts are flush top and bottom on the stock..
If i shaved the inside of the stock to fit the length of the screw.. it wouldnt be flush any more on the outside.

Re posts: 2624 2592

So i did wind up chiseling out more to make the stock screw fit across the new stock.. it turned out ok... the action is a little counter sunk now.. but it still looks great.
pics:










So that is still the old forearm. Its in great shape and the same stain color, so ill leave it on till i feel like putting the new one on.

It' much better to have too much wood than not enough.

This thread has really educated me about my new firearm. As a result of all the teaching, I have made some purchases, and I will modify my weapon.

I decided to mount a 336 lever rail from XS Sight Systems. On top of that will be a Leupold scout scope secured by Warne rings.

I know there are numerous pictures of the same thing on this thread, but I feel obligated to post a picture (to show my many professors here on this thread) once I get my rifle "tricked-out."

Seems to be quite the loyal following for this little gun. I have always liked the way the Marlin looked, and I have found myself in a situation where a 30-30 would be a life saver (or life taker actualy).
My friend has a hunting camp deep in high brush country where the weeds grow 5' tall, I passed up on a shot the other day on a nice buck because the darn weeds would give my .270 WSM fits before it struck it's target. Besides a magnum rifle is just a huge overkill for 40-120 yard shots on 150lbs Alabama whitetail IMHO.
So I am really tempted to go to the store and pick up a new 336. I have never owned or even fired a leaver gun before is there anything really different then firing a bolt action? Any good handloads for the 30-30?

The principles are the same. You may find the levergun much easier to handle, shoot and carry out in the field. The slimmer profile and (typically) lighter weight are among the levergun's virtues.

My favorite handloads are:
-170 grain Hornady JSP over IMR 3031 at or near max published levels. Varget works well with this bullet too.
-150 grain Remington JSP over IMR 4895 or IMR 3031 to get about 2100-2200 fps is a dandy (aka "The PappaJohn Load")
-170 grain cast bullet (sized .311") over enough Unique or SR 4756 to get 1400 fps. I've used this for levergun silhouette matches and on dingers out to 500 yards.
-170 grain cast bullet over enough 2400 to get 1850 fps. My cast bullet hunting load.
-115 grain cast bullet (Lee "Soup Can") over enough Bullseye to get 850 fps. Very accurate, quiet, rimfire like recoil and inexpensive to shoot. Great for Grouse, plinking and teaching new shooters.

Any thoughts on the 30-30 vs 35 rem debate? I think Marlin makes a 45-70 too. So many choices so little cash LOL Don't larger calibers make better brush busters in theory?

The BIG advantage to the little 30-30 is the economy and availability. That is mitigated by reloading.

I prefer hunting with the bigger (fatter) bullets myself. My current favorite is 38-55. 45-70's are mighty addictive too.

35 Remington is a great hunting cartridge too.

You really can't go wrong. The easiest solution is to buy them all.

NICE I might go with the "puney" 30-30, I have never had any issue droping anything with my 6.5x55 and the 30-30 has similar KE with similar bullet weights, not as long ranged mind you but should do just as well at close range while busting brush. Does anyone know if I can buy 150 gr silvertip hollow points for reloading? They seem to have an exelent reputation for top notch expension in the 30-30 but I cannot find the component bullets. Partitions seem to be great too but they are just so darn $$$ mabey if I was hunting elk with it I would invest the $37 for a box of 50 but there is no need for that controled expansion on 150 lbs deer.

Well, I finally managed to find the time to give my newly acquired 336 a cleaning (see post 2613). Once I got the old grease out, and replaced it with a nice coat of CLP, the action slicked up quite a bit. There is a spot that it hangs up a little when opening when the back of the lever is about an inch from the stock. I will shoot it a bit, and decide whether it is annoying enough to bother chasing down. I am pretty sure that my original assessment was correct in that this rifle has had very few rounds through it in the 35 years of its life. There are essentially no signs of any wear in the action, so things will probably loosen up a little on their own just from shooting. I am a happy camper

I mounted a scope on it that I had laying around, but as soon as I discovered how much that affected the handling I took it back off (the mounts are still on it in the picture below, but I have a Williams sight on the way). I prefer iron sights anyway.

Here she is, spending some time with my GP100.

Check to see if the hang up you are feeling is the bolt going ofer the hammer. You can pollish the ramp on the bolt and the top of the hammer with some 600grit for A smoother throw.

Bought a Glenfield 30A this morning, pretty beat up and neglected... stock has some gouges in it, plenty of rub marks on the hand guard... some previous owner pulled the sling swivel out of the butt stock and then tried to drill another hole close to it.... buggered that up...

Metal is about 90% or better, bore doesn't look like it's been cleaned since god knows when.... got it soaking now.

It's a 1980 model, glad I could rescue it. So now the project begins as soon as I get the bore cleaned and determine that it'll shoot like it should. If so, I'll refinish the stock or find a good used one and keep it. If not, I'll trade it off.

Probably paid too much for it at 175.00.... but winter is here and projects keep me outta trouble...LOL

Based on past performance, I'd say 150 gr Corelokt.

Ask me again after I get it cut to 16.5".

I rarely shoot factory ammo but Remington, Federal, Winchester and Hornady all make excellent ammo.
