Well done. Looks like you need a bigger case.
People say money can't buy happiness But it can buy me a Marlin and ammo to shoot in it, dies, powder bullets...

I want I need 2 sets just like yours. LOL
Gareth what can I say but outstanding!! That is just gorgeous furniture on that rifle! Congrats and great choice on the wood and stain!
Lots of Marlins!
I have to give you Brit's credit, you know how to do class and elegance in firearms!
Even if you have to import them.
ETA - Looks like you added height at the comb with that stock. Does it improve eye alignment with the scope?

It's what you learn after you know it all that makes a difference.
Yes it does help with eye alignment and allows perfect stock weld, James who did the work is the same build as I am so what fits one fits the other. We have proved this to many times with shot guns. He also did the final fit to the same size as the existing with a few improvements.
I shot the best group yet with the new stock due to perfect fit. I have no problems importing a Marlin it just feels so very right in the hand and as has been written many times the 30-30 is just such a well balanced cartridge. I am lucky in the fact I have some nice rifles, now my 336 is one of the nicest and I love a lever action. Well worth the doing and I cannot recommend the suppler or gun smith highly enough. This is now a working rifle that stays in its slip in the Land Rover cab. Thanks to all from across the pond,
