    My 35

    Started life as a standard 336 CS in 35 Remington. The guy I bought it from had put it away wet and the end of the barrel rusted and pitted. I decided to cut it down to get rid of the pitting.



    That turned it into a 16 bbl carbine.



    But I always wanted Guide Gun which feature a straight stock. Even though the biggest thing one is likely to run into in my neck of the woods is black bear, the thought of handy, dandy brush gun appealed to me. So I picked a straight lever off of ebay and cut the pistol grip stock and tang down.




    I eventually sanded the stock down which brought out the grain.



    I then cut 2" off the stock, adding a inch thick recoil pad. I also thinned out the fore arm and added a fiber optic front and rear peep sight (Williams Fire Sight)



    Got myself a straight lever, brush busting 35. I did all this before big loops were popular or readily available. I may add one in the future.

    Looks good, I did one similar a couple years ago.
    I didn't change the floor plate or the stock.

    Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.
    Took a decent little 5 point with mine last year.

    How does it shoot?

    And...It shoots fine. Not as accurate as I hoped but good enough for brush gun ranges. It does kick a bit as well but the recoil pad softens it somewhat.

    looks great- Here's mine. It was a 336A waffletop until somebody d&t'ed it crooked. Since the collector interest was ruined I cut it to 16.25 and recrowned it then had to redrill and tap 2 holes. I still need to do a little fitting of the "pre-fit" pad and replace the bullseye. I've been carrying it lately in my quest for a certain bunch of hogs. It's more accurate than it has a right to be!

    Cool beans but seeing it laying in a pile of bricks just makes me cringe!

    Thoughts on Remlins: The day I walk into a sporting goods and honestly mistake a Remlin gun for a JM gun, THAT will be the day I think about buying one. Until then, they can keep 'em.

    Words to live by: Just because something is primitive, doesn't mean it has to be crude. Just because something is custom, doesn't mean it's quality.
