Hey folks! I'm new here and this also my first post. Need help with my fathers old Marlin 336 (WesternField 740A emn) Manufactured right around the end of 64 or early 65. The rifle is in very good shape, my father must of put maybe 2 boxes of shells thru it before he past back in the late 60's. Mom's kept it in her closet in a chest for like 35years. Then one day she gave it to me. At any rate it's in very good shape, the only thing I don't like about it It has no safety. Here's my questions, how hard would it be to put a safety on it? Would it require a hole new receiver? Is this rifle worth putting $200 dollars into for new fancier wood and a scope? It had a scope don't know what happened to it. Here's a few pix....I know the hammer is back and that's not good specially for a rifle with no safety, but I haven't bought shells yet. This was my dad's favorite so any help would be greatly appreciated.
