    Shortening lenght of Marlin 336-30/30?



    Hello!
    I have just bought a Marlin 336-30/30 for both plinking & home defense! The lenght is 37 inches which is a little too long !
    Can you buy shorter stocks for this Marlin 336? The barrel is 20
    inches in lenght! The Lever action is a stretch to reach--any ideas are welcomed!

    You may be able to find a youth length stock or take it to a gunsmith and have him cut it to the proper length of pull to fit you then reattach the butt plate.

    Numrich Arms lists replacement stocks but do not specify length of pull.

    Another source may be Brownells.

    It should cost a lot less to have a gunsmith custom fit the gun to you than to purchase a new stock that might fit you. Take it to a good gunshop, or a friend who is good at sawing stuff up. For us shotgun shooters proper stock fit is the norm.

    Marlin has at times offered a youth model (336Y) that has a 12-1/2 inch LOP, probably an inch shorter than the standard model, so Marlin may be able to supply you with the Youth buttstock. Ram-Line and possibly others catalog a synthetic youth stock for the 336 for about $50 - look on eBay. I think that's a cheaper solution and reversible, compared to modifying the existing stock.
