Many thanks for Badlander, Nematocyst, Abel on the feedback.

Abel, just out of curiosity, where does the 20,000 rounds come from? It's so hard to find info on barrel lives outsite of target shooters.

Nothing very scientific, I assure you.

I read that here:

http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=231205

If that's right, and a box of 30-30 runs you $12, you'll have spent $12,000 in ammo for a rifle that I paid $300 for.

Thanks Abel for the link. I do look forward to the day when I can wear one out. I like your line about the cost of ammo vs cost of rifle. I have often used similar logic when folks are wringing their hands over a $200 price difference between two pistols. Ammo costs makes that kind of thing irrevelant fairly quickly.

Stock questions

I am new to Marlins and here so I am sorry if this has been beaten to gone, but I just got a 1971 Marlin 336. Just plain 336 with straight stock.Stock is cracked so I want to replace forearm and stock with as original as possible, reblue, and clean it up for grandson. Any ideas where a stock can be hiding.

Does anyone know if the big lever is interchangeable with the standard pistol grip lever of a standard 336 (1998 model)

does anyone know where to find a saddle ring to be mounted on the crosbolt safety?

greetings

Peter

@ cityboy:

Ebay is a great source for used Marlin stocks:

I think Marlin just brough back 336Y (youth model with a 16.25" barrel). I downloaded their 2011 catalog as a PDF and it shows (page 11) the 336Y in the listings and says "new". 5+1 capacity. LOP is not listed though I did some math 336Y vs 336C and based on barrel lenghts and overall lenghts & know LOP for 336C, I've calculated that LOP for 336Y should be 12". Though you might appreciate this info. I've attached page 11 below.

Also, on page 13, it turns out that the 1894s for both 357/38 and 44 mag/special can be had in stainless w 16.25" barrels w XS ghost rings installed plus rail for forward mounted scope with a gray laminate stock.

Way to go Marlin!

Levers are either straight or pistol grip. not interchangable.
For A safety replacement with saddle ring look at.
www.beartoothmercantile.com I have several of their products and highly recomend them.

I guess I am about to enter the 336 club
I am getting a 1971 336C in 30-30 with scope for a good price from a member at the Marlin Owners forums. I am looking forward to to my first non-pistol caliber lever action. I currently have a Rossi 92 in 45 Colt and used to have a Navy Arms 24" 1873 (also 45 Colt) that I loved. I liked the '73 action better then the 92 action but my wife liked the 92 better for our SASS shooting and I needed the money and sold it expecting that I would get a shorter 73 some time later. That never happened. If I end up liking the 336 as much as I expect I will then a Marlin 1894 Cowboy might follow the 336 into the safe later

It all depends on what you shoot through it. I'm planning on 50K rounds through most of my centerfires, but I shoot almost exclusively cast bullets.

I have over 20K through my 1952 model 70, 98% of which are 311291 gas checked lead bullets and it is just getting good.

My 336 is an old one, first year for (ugh) microgroove, and since I don't know what the original owner put through it, I'll estimate my lifetime won't be enough to wear it out.

If you shoot hot loads and do it fast, you can ruin a barrel in a day. Let it cool a little and stay in the green zone and you can get a couple generations out of it.

I finally got to take My new toy to the range this past weekend. A 336 in .35 Rem. I had Remington, Winchester, and Hornady Leverevolution ammo to try, all with 200 gr. bullets.

The Winchester and Hornady both grouped sub 1.5 moa at 100 yds with the Winchesters shooting about 3 inches lower than the Hornadys. The Remington ammo grouped about 2 in moa and 9 inches lower than the Hornadys.

I left the range with the gun sighted 3 inches high at a 100 yds with the Hornadys and "spot on" with the Winchesters. The remaining Remington ammo will get plinked away at a later date

Thanks. If I could get 50K rounds through it I'd be happy for several reasons. One good reason would be that I must be taking it out to the range a lot and shooting it a great deal. As it is, whenever I make a range trip, I almost always bring this along as well to put 40 or 60 rounds through it to stay sharp.

Well it is a limited edition of only 1050 and numbered such at 5xx for the NRA. I bought it in an auction. I have not shot it yet and will probably do some upgrades without altering any original parts or finishes. Thinking of putting a nice Walnut stock on it from Marlin factory and some other changes. It is has a 24" barrel and laser engraving on the action. Other than that I do not know why it was made this way or where they were originally sold. Any info you find would be great as well as that is the extent of what I know about it. I have not fired it as of yet either. I will mount a redfield 4-12x40 that I have from the new line.

The first thing I'd do is have a 'smith chop it back to either 20" or 18.5". If you can get that fancy wood from Remington/Marlin, great. But 24" is a handful.
