    Value on a customized 1950 336A Waffle Top 30-30

    Just trying to find a value on a 1950 336A waffle top 30-30 with 24" barrel. It has had a full length magazine tube installed (new dovetail cut and all). According to the guy it holds 8+1 now. It looks to be in good condition. Blueing appears to be good as well. Has a Bishop stock.

    yeah i agree with deerhog.
    reason is, that original notch for the mag hanger is always going to be visible
    under the barrel. and if you put the half mag on it you'll have one under the end of the barrel now.
    in short, its an irreversible mod short of cutting the barrel down...then you get into
    re drilling for a sight ramp.
    but them bishop stocks are hard to find.

    Ranger Point makes a dovetail filler with a round profile for that underbarrel dovetail. Nice rifle for $300. Whip out three one-hundred dollar bills. That works pretty well most of the time.

    To me, less than original form.
    But it depends on how much you need a 9 shot, open sighted 30-30.
    Always better to carry "too much" gun and too many cartridges...

    I agree with the price ranges posted above. I was turned off by the sights that are installed. The Butt stock is nice.

    I'd top out at 375-400. Not so much for the mag tube mod but from the looks of the pics the finish looks pretty worn, especially on the barrel. I'd put a RPP slot filler in the empty bottom dovetail if it were mine.

    The other answer is that it's worth whatever you can get... it's not going to be worth much to a collector

    Yes - it's been modified... But if it's professionally well done and it's in pretty good condition... If the stock is well fitted and the bluing is well done - somebody will want it... Not as a collector but more as a quality shooter.... And especially if it shoots like the typical early 336 - post show some pics of sub 1" 100 yard groups....

    The one possible trouble is that a 9-shot 30-30 is illegal for hunting in many places... So that's going to reduce the interest vs a 6-shot Model A or a 4-shot SC.....

    A lot of "ifs" and IF the top has been unmolested it's worth more. If it's been D&T for a scope it will further reduce the value.
