    1947 36RC with a Bishop buttplate.***NEW PICS***

    I'm interested in a Marlin36RC made in 1947 but the buttplate says bishop on it, I'm pretty sure it's not an original buttplate, anyone can confirm this?

    Well, Bishop was a custom stock maker... It might have a Bishop stock on it... Got any pictures?

    Well, it doesn't look like a Bishop stock. Doesn't mean it isn't. But this is the type of Bishop stock I'm used to seeing...

    Maybe it's just a Bishop buttplate... They were a supplier for the Marlin Custom shop, if memory serves...

    I strongly suspect an aftermarket stock and definitely the buttplate. The reason I don't think the stock is factory as it has no flutes at the comb that were on the factory guns.

    Nothing to be ashamed of on a 71 year old well taken care of gun that can probably tell many tales and maybe has "seen the elephant". (Not an actual pachyderm but an expression)

    gunscrewguy, are you sure 1947 36RC has the flutes at the comb? I checked many of them on the web and most do not have the flutes.

    The butt plate is not fit to that stock,looks to small,also has square drive screws,didn't exist in 1947,my guess is the butt plate is wrong,stock probably correct.
