    Saddle ring for a 336

    I was looking at some pictures of some 336's on Pinterest & other sites & came across a 336 with a saddle ring on it. I thought it looked great & was wondering if anyone has done this mod & if so if they could tell me were I could get one & how it installs. I just got my 336 of all places on craigslist. At first I did not think it was legit. But it was & I was very pleased to buy it from the 1'st owner. I have several goodies still coming that have not yet arrived. I bought a really nice ammo holder & sling from ESTY. I think that is how you spell it. They also agreed to put ( 1976 MARLIN 336 ) on the top fat part of the sling for free for me. It will not ship until the 20th of this month. Looking forward to installing it.

    Some of the Texan ( straight stock ) models came with the saddle ring. If you had a newer model with the cross bolt safety there is a kit offered by a few companies that eliminates the safety button and replaces it with a saddle ring. Your other option is to drill and tap the receiver and install one. Have fun with your new one and let us know how she shoots.

    What a great bunch of guys you are. I looked up the Beartooth site & they have all the options. I have many other rifles & handguns but my new to me 336 is in a class of it's own & very unique. ( I LOVE IT )

    Thanks For The Help

    The Beartooth saddle rings are safety deletes. Meaning on a model with a hammer block safety you can swap out the safety for the saddle ring. The 1976 336 doesn't have a hammer block safety.

    You would need to find a saddle ring that you like and have the receiver drilled and tapped. A Marlin made saddle ring is pricey if you can find one.


    Opps! My mistake, Beartooth does have "Regular" saddle rings.

    I saw the options ERE. And they at least had one that you would half to drill & tap. And right now that is all I got. Finding a used one from the correct era would be really hard. Most people would not want to sell.

    Thanks again guys
