    I've got no idea but throw the question out in the Gunsmithing section and I bet you get some answers. Some of those guys make works of art out of stocks.

    That's awful considerate of you .

    That my friends is an original Marlin 336A-DL stock; and this set is on a beautiful Marlin 336 chambered in 32 Win Special. As FYI, I purchased another A-DL in 30-30 Win and received the gun yesterday; it is a 1957 model, and the wood on that gun is almost as nice as the wood on the 32 Special (probably is as nice, but the finish has darkened with age making the color and grain tough to see). From 1957-1962 Marlin put this style stock, fabricated from select American black walnut on all Model 336A-DL's produced during this period. These stocks were designed by the Bishop Stock Company especially for Marlin and feature a raised comb and cheek piece; they are hand-checkered, and in many cases exhibit fabulous color and figure. In my opinion, the Model 336A-DLs from this period are the most beautiful Marlin Model 336 levers ever made; these models were more costly and they didn't sell many, so they are hard to find. These A-DL's were offered in 30/30, 32 Special, and 35 Remington When I get an example in 35 Rem, I'll have the complete "set"; but below is a photo of a doe I took earlier this season with the 32 Special and a Hornady 165 grain FTX factory load. It was DRT.Marlin.32 Special.Doe.10.22.11..jpg

    that is one nice rifle.
    i finally found a nice piece of wood from macons for 175.00 and will be posting pics as i go along . i am thinking i will send the stock back to be checkered in stead of trying it myself.even at 175.00 thats too expensive to mess up.http://www.shop.macongunstocks.com/3...?productId=936

    Ratchethead nailed it on the head again! If you want wow factor I'd start looking for a figured wood stock set. I bought this one from a seller on ebay for about $150. I've had it for a while but am currently stripping the marshield finish and hope to have it up and running over Christmas break, sort of a gift to myself lol.
