Ladies and gentlemen,

Long live the 336!

is the silver bolt on a 336 or 30a stainless steel? I'm looking at a used one and it has some stuff on it I was wondering if it would come off.

There should be an entire forum dedicated to these rifles!! I tried to do a search, but it made my head spin trying to sift through all the responses.



What are the best quality aftermarket ghost-ring sites made for the 336? Or is there some other type of site that is even better??

Taff,

Searching this (and any long) thread for details like that can be a challenge. (I just tried it myself, searching this thread on "ghost ring", and indeed got a LOT of hits, but so little text it's hard to know from the search results which are most relevant posts. I hope to create an index of this thread someday. Actually, several to many of us could do that; different perspectives could be very interesting.)

So, it's fine to revisit these issues occasionally. We recommend, at their leisure, when times allows sometime in the future, that club members read the thread from start to finish. (I've done it twice.) We're hopefully building a resource here that's worthwhile and fun to read. (One can always scan over the parts that aren't relevant or interesting.)

As to ghost rings (GR): I suspect most in here would suggest one of two:

Either XS (what I have, though have yet to get them sighted in properly ... just too freaking busy at work right now) or Skinners.

The Skinners are technically a "peep" sight instead of GR, but the smaller aperture can be removed to make it a ghost ring. Best of both worlds.

E'trode has the Skinners on his, and I'm planning to put a set on my 1894C. (I'll scope the 336 with a scout scope, but positively will NOT scope the 1894C.)

I think there are others out there (are Williams FP modifiable as ghost rings? can't remember...), but others can tell you about them.

Nem

Nem,

Thanks for the response. Two quick questions;

-Do the XS sites use the pre-existing drilled holes?
-Do the Skinners come with a new front site?

Taff, you're welcome.

XS do use existing holes. When you order, they'll want details of which 336 you have, how old it is, etc. That'll be particular relevant for the front sight, which is more variable than the rear.

AND if there's going to be a sighting problem, it's going to involve the height of the front sight. I had to exchange the original they sent for a taller sight because the original XS front was causing me to hit WAY high (like 8 - 10") at 50. The original front also was designed for two holes in the barrel, and I only have one. (Heads up on that when you order.) They exchanged it free, but it was a minor hassle.

As for the Skinner, others can tell you for sure, but I think the front sight is only about $5 more.

I haven't posted in this thread yet, but I guess I should because I recently purchased a 336. It is a 30-30 made, in 1979 I believe. The gun is great, taken care of good looking, and shoots pretty good too. I just want to know how would I adjust the sights on the gun? They rear sight has what appears to be two pins that hold that sight in from moving side to side or slipping out. Is that just how it looks, or can I not move it?

ghost rings

Hey Taff.,
Nem. is right about the XS GRs and I do have a set of skinner sights on my 336. The Skinners came predrilled for using the factory mounts on the rifle. The front sight from skinner uses the existing front base of the 336. I am very partial to my skinners but I know others prefer the XS system. Both are good and will work well.

The only info. I gave to skinner was that I wanted both front and rear sights and what model of rifle I had.

E'trode

Greyling, I assume stainless, but not 100% sure, and I'm not sure what else it'd be.
(Warning: never trust a biologist's opinion about metal. )

What kind of "stuff"? Are you contemplating using solvent of some kind to remove it?

thought I might try some rusty duck and old t-shirt first and move on from there. and it might not be rust. it was just there in the initial picture sent. I"m going to see it in person later this week and was just trying to get some background info going into it.

Grey, keep us posted on that stuff on the bolt. I'll bet we can figure a way to get it off.

FX and DA, nice rifles with nice older furniture. Very similar except for buttcuff.

DA, nice to see you don't spend all your time with 642s and 340s.

That's a good deal on that brass! The last that I bought cost me $16.99 for 100 pieces. That was 2 years ago before component prices went through the roof. I bet 100 pieces would be close to $25 now.

That's turned into a nice discussion over there.

In particular, I like the quotes that Balrog (post 11) offered from Col. Jeff Cooper about .30-30s.

We should have a conversation like that in here.
We haven't often discussed tactical 336 and 336 for SD in here
(although it has come up on occasion.)

does anybody know if you can put a ramline stock on a model 30a? which is a 336a I believe. the A has a different forend than the C and the ramlines are made to fit the C. would it be possible to change the barrel band and make it work? or chop the ramline forend? also, nemocyst, the bolt was not rusted in any way, it was just a funny picture.
