    Finally found the needle in the haystack: JM 336Y Spikehorn!

    Well after looking for the better part of ten years and a few missed opportunities, I finally scored an original JM Spikehorn 336Y! It came at a tough time financially but the price was fair so I couldn't pass it up. This model was introduced in the 2003 catalog but the serial number indicates the receiver was made in 2002. As such I'm calling this a first-year example. Overall the gun is in excellent condition with virtually no wear that I can see to the walnut stocks or bluing.

    As far as modifications go, I knew the previous owner added the XS scout rail but the original rear sight was included. I was a little surprised to find they had swapped the buttstock for an adult sized stock, however. This is really of no consequence as I am planning to convert the gun to a straight stock anyway and that should make it a little easier to find someone to trade parts with. I haven't shot it yet but pulled the Burris scout scope off my Rossi project as shown here: Project Stainless Rossi .357 “Lever Scout” SBR

    I'm hoping to get to the range this week to see how it shoots and may bring my 16" 336SDT for comparison. I have chopped a few guns over the years but have a soft spot for the factory short barrel guns!







    Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

    What's difficult about finding one of them?........There's one in the safe ten feet from where I sit..........

    No kidding, nice score...

    I put a full size butt stock on mine right after I bought in 13+ years ago. I'm a big fellar, and the youth stock was just a little too small for me, otherwise, the rifle was perfect.

    Very nice rifle.

    Did you cut down the stainless carbine in the picture below or was it manufactured that way?

    Thanks.
