I have an otherwise ordinary '49 336SC with a nicely-figured buttstock. I have my eye on a nice '49 336A with a plain buttstock. If I were to purchase the 336A is there any reason to believe I couldn't dress up the 336A with the SC buttstock? I would generally think same-year buttstocks are identical - some forearms an obviously different story.

As long as they're both pistol grip they'll exchange, Depending on the stock there may be a gap around the inletting or you may have to take a little wood off. I took a stock from a 338 MX to a friends 336 and it worked great.

They were still doing a lot of hand fitting back then, but even then the quality control on the metal parts were watched closely as well as the wood. Might fit real nice and then it might take a little work. Have to check it to see.

It should work fine. A newer one wont fit so good, they changed the curve at some point early on but if its the same vintage you should be fine.
