2 Marlin big loop levers on Gunbroker. The one for the 1895 will work.

I do have long arms. I'm 6', long and lanky.

More important for me, during medium sized game season, I will always be wearing gloves. Hey, I live in Maine.

Look here www.marlinowners.com in the gunsmithing sectoin.
I'm definately not "real handy". Are these bolt on and bolt off parts I could order and have a local gunsmith (who's familiar with lever actions) install?

My preference is to modify this lever action but I haven't totally ruled out buying a Texan.

They are direct change parts. Simple job. The hard part is finding the parts. will be easier to buy A texan. If you can find one.

Struck up a deal to do a little trading with a local friend of mind, I traded this leather that I made posing on my 1895, 586, and MK II. The cuffs are for 444 (two of them), 35-Rem, and 30-30.








For this '63 straight stock, she's in well loved condition with beautiful figuring in the front grip. I'll get better pictures of it in the morning!




Can I be in now?

Oh, yeah: you're in, Eagle.

Nice leather.

Nice rifles, too.

I was able to get the Texan out this afternoon. I was shooting low at 65 yds so I know where to hold it next time, I'm really wanting to get a vintage peep for this or an older scope set up. Anyone have any suggestions?

This shows the figure well in the forearm:






Annie wasn't amused:




And, the 'shooting house'

Problem is every time I make myself something, someone else wants it more than I do. I think I'm going to track down an older weathered Williams Peep to match the rifles patina and do some distressed leather for it. 'In my free time' `

The upper and lower tangs on the rear of the receiver of the pistol grip stock equipped 336 would need to be straightened before you could fit a straight stock to it. This has been done but it is not easy and should be left to a 'smith that knows exactly what he/she is doing.

Far, far easier to find a Texan.

Bergmen. you are incorrect. The upper tang is on the reciever and does not need to be altered. The lower tang is on the trigger plate not the reciever. You just need to replace the pistol grip trigger plate with the straight grip trigger plate, lever, and buttstock.

finding A texan probably is easier than finding the parts.

Yes, I see now that your are correct. I took a much closer look at my 336 and indeed, the parts necessary to be changed to accommodate a straight stock can be installed by bolting in place.

I think I got confused by another Marlin, possibly a 39A, that needed to have complext tang straightening to go straight stock.

It's all good.

336 RC. Had it for 2 years, 2 dead deer. The original Marlin butt plate had broken so I put a Pachmeyer recoil pad on without cutting off any of the stock, then I refinished the wood in tung oil and put on a rosewood grip cap. The grain on the wood is outstanding

Does anyone happen to know the proper part numbers I'd need to order? Can the parts (and part numbers) from a straight stock 1895 be used on the 336?

In a perfect world I'd like to use my current 336 as I've fallen in love with it. I've got a local gunsmith who does a lot CAS so he can likely do the work.

There are many sources for manuals of just about every firearm made that has one. Here is one source:

http://stevespages.com/page7b.htm

Check the breakdown of an 1895 (or Texan) in there and you should be able to find the numbers. Here's another source:

http://www.cornellpubs.com/index.php

Also here for parts:

http://www.gunpartscorp.com/

Hope this helps.

I don't know of anyone selling triger plates. Marlin will not sell them to you unless you are A gunsmith. Keep your eye on Ebay, Gunbroker etc. The 1895 Stock and lever will work on your 336 not sure about the trigger plate.

Go over to www.marlinowners.com you will find all the Marlin info you could ever want.

Nice rifle, Carlo. Welcome.

And a little OT, but curious: what's that pack?

If given the choice, would you guys get a pre-Remington 336W, 336C, or vintage 336SC or 336RC, or 336A?

Also how much should you pay for a 1955-60 336 in good condition? $400-450? How about pre-Remington 336's? $350?

I never have liked the poor checkering or the deep reddish stained birch on those newest 336W or 336A models that Marlin made, prior to the Remington buyout. I always look for the models that were available before those two models. I actually like the way Remington finishes their birch, even if they fall short on other issues.

But, I look for 336C, 336, 336RC, 336A with the 24" barrel, 336SC, and the 336ADL. The Marlin-made Glenfield models that I search for are the 36G, 30TK, 30, 30GT, and 30A.

It's an Eberlestock Tail Hook just gut it this year. Best day pack I've ever had. Just checked my 336, it's an F serial # so it makes it 1949.

If the 336 has a straight grip stock, does that automatically make it a Texan? I heard that RC models also came with these. Any pattern or years?
