    Where to find: Walnut forend for a Glenfield Model 30?

    Hey y'all. I'm hoping to put walnut stocks on my Glenfield 30 in 30-30. It's basically a 336, BUT it has a longer forend that fits into a end cap, so a normal 336 forend is too short and the wrong style.

    The buttstock from a 336 will work fine, but the forend is a horse of a different color. Mine has the half mag and is a looker, I just want to dress her up in walnut if I can. As far as I can see from looking around a little, all Glenfield 30's and 30A's have the same length forend. I don't know if there's another 336 variant that might use the same forend that's easier to come by, as the Glenfields only came in walnut.

    Any advice kindly appreciated. My initial search results haven't turned up anything.

    The glenfields were a store brand many times Birch was the stock material.
    A glenfield model 30 is a 336 so a forend for a 336 with the end cap should work.
    Try Boyds they have a section here.
    MGW is also good.
    Brownells may have em.
    Etc. Etc. Etc.

    I won't touch Boyds as I hear they have a strict no return policy, and I've heard of a few folks being burned over just this type of forend. But I'll give the others a look-see. I didn't see one at MGW, but I might have missed it, will look again more closely.

    Here's a pic. Hope it helps. Any chance the forearm from a cowboy would fit?

    I measured my forearm. It's right at 10 1/8" long. I wish I could figure out what model Marlin came with the same forearm in walnut. When I talked with Midwest Gun Works the lady all but shut me out when I said it was a Glenfield and not a Marlin. I tried to explain that they were one and the same but she all but closed the chat tab on me, pronto. Brownells has quite a few, but the only one I saw in stock was for a Marlin 94, so probably too short.
