    Synthetic Stocks for Marlin 336

    It seems like the only synthetic stocks for Marlin 336's are from Ram Line; I am shocked that the good folks at Hogue have not produced a stock for the 336. I have waited four years to get my 336W and I can't believe there is not some custom stock maker who makes a synthetic stock for my new baby. The walnut stock is a heavy old beast, and seeing as I will be using this rig to hunt in the rainforests where I live (West Coast, South Island, New Zealand) I need a kick axe weather resistant stock. Anybody got any ideas?

    MPI stock makes them, I also think wild west guns has some for sale. They are pricey though.

    If your toting a 336W with a walnut stock...you got something special there. 336W are NOT walnut stocked, they are hardwood walnut stained stocks. Always have been. Good luck in your search for the synthetic one. Mr fixit

    Re: Synthetic Stocks for Marlin 336

    Im somewhat having the same problem except, I am looking for a synthetic "Straight Stock" for my 336, and I really cant find one? Does anyone know if theres any synthetic straight stocks anywhere?

    The only reason why I am looking for one is because I want to keep the original stock in good condition and put aside, also the tactical look would be kind of interesting as well! I just plan on keeping the original stock nice and perfect so when I feel like being all original, i can just swap them and it will look beautiful.

    Re: Synthetic Stocks for Marlin 336

    Honestly, the Ram Line is fine, I don't know why everyone is so afraid of it. Buy the Ram-Line, fit it to your gun then remove it again and apply a few coats of textured black paint for a better grip and to remove the unsightliness of the plastic. Install it and shoot. If you don't like the hollow knocking sound it makes when struck with another object, fill it with styrofoam.

    The reason a lot of manufacturers don't make synthetic Marlin stocks is because there is not a massive demand for them, and what demand there is, some just buy a Ram Line or spend a ridiculous amounts of money on an MPI stock. There may be other options out there, but within the lever action community the general consensus is that black stocks are still sacrilegious.

    I have a Ram Line on my 336 and it does the job. I threw a small Kickeez pad on there as well and it's a great little rifle for the seasons.

    I've long been a fan of your projects and reference them often.

    How much fitting is generally needed with the Ram Line?

    Re: Synthetic Stocks for Marlin 336

    The only fitting I had to do was on the buttstock, specifically the rear tang. The slot for the rear tang had to be opened just very slightly in order for the buttstock to go on 100%. I've heard from other people that the stock sometimes slides right on while others require fitting. To me it is a small price to pay for a cheap synthetic stock. It is what it is.

    They'd be going on my $250 336W project rifle so I don't need anything overly fancy.

    I like the reduced weight idea is why I am considering them.

    I've never seen a straight grip synthetic on the market. A couple guys here have made them out of fiberglass but that is beyond most of our abilities.

    One option for ya, especially if you just want to preserve your originals and obtain a look, is to buy another set of wood stocks and do something like TractorShaft did here: http://www.marlinowners.com/forums/i...,46726.30.html
