Hello Everyone,

I'm hearing rumors that the Marlin 336CB in 38-55 has been discontinued?? Is this right or is it the 336CB in 30/30 been discontinued.

Could someone please shed some light.

Thanks, Allen

The 336CB in .30-30 was discontinued, I haven't heard of them discontinuing the .38-55 but, that wouldn't surprise me. If you're wanting a 336CB in .30-30, you can send them a straight gripped .30-30 and they will replace everyting forward of the receiver for you for $280.00 with CB parts. You could send them a curved grip and they would do it too, it just wouldn't look right.

Hey Masterifleman,

Thanks for the info! I thought it was the 30/30, but wanted to check.
I guess I'm lucky that I found a 336CB 30/30 a couple days ago for $650 (including shipping).

I was searching for a 336CB in 38-55 for my cousin and I came upon the 30/30. Already took it out to shoot and it is a shooter. Just shot factory ammo, haven't had time to load up some lead bullet loads. Deer season is coming up in Missouri and the 336CB 30/30 is going out!

Thanks, Al

Masterifleman -

When I read the end of your reply, I thought "Man, he's right", but what if you did have them reconfigure a curved butt to Cowboy specs, then replaced the stock with a vintage profile stock (with crescent buttplate), slimmed up the forearm, and modified the lever to resemble a turn-of-the-century lever? Hmmmmm. Wish I had the money to try these ideas....

This is a Model 336CB in 38/55 caliber I converted to pistol grip some time back. I have also converted a Model 1895CB in 45/70 and a Model 1894CB in 44/40.
