    Buttplate spacer material for 336

    I fbroke my buttplate and spacer on 336. S[acer didin't fit right anyway. Anyone found a substitute material for the spacers? Or have an unfitted spacer they would trade or sell? Or know where I may get a spacer? Numrich doesn't have any nor does Brownell.

    Some of the folks have made spacers out of plastic buckets! Hey, whatever works works John

    A white plastic laundry basket or plastic bucket, or the top off a storage bin. I bought a cheap trashcan and cut it up. Anything white and about the right thickness. It doesn't even have to be white, get creative. Someone used the red plastic from a Folger's coffee container. Looked pretty good.
    I have more guns than I need, but not as many as I want.

    I have made 4 out of one small white plastic bucket lid . . . have thought knife scales, which are available in so many different colors of wood, bone etc; would make nice spacers and grip caps

    Replacement spacers and buttplates are cheap enough.
    I prefer the old traditional look without the spacer.
    I take the buttplate and sand it flat with a benchtop belt sander, then smotth the sides to matc the stock if necessary.
    Salvaging old Marlins is not a past time ... It's a passion.
    Mostly 1893 through 1959 Marlin levers, short carbines to long rifles.
    Most models and variations in calibers
    30/30, .308, .32, .35, .357, .45 Colt, 45/70 (a few)...
    Cast and reload for 'em all, hunt year round.

    I was at a CD/DVD store and noticed the white plastic dividers between the letters and categories were a white styrene about 1/16" thick. I thought they might have a future use and I asked the clerk is I could have a broken one and he gave me one for free. It is easy to cut and glues easily. Each one would make at least 4-5 spacers. I used one on a old Mossberg .22LR I have that had a shrunken spacer.
