"Plastic barrel bands" surely you jest! They haven't gone that far down have they?

Laminated stocks to fit a 336 and a big loop will get you about as close as you can get. As far as I understand the G is the G(Guide Gun) in the 1895G and that's a 45/70.

In addition to the stock set you will need the following parts:

-Forearm tip #F406608
-Forearm tip tenon #F406321
-Forearm tip tenon screws #F406454 (2 required)

Note this will require cutting a dovetail for the tenon using a milling machine or a dovetail jig with a file.

Other than the laminated stocks what else do I need to convert a standard 336w to a GBL?
This is a 30-30 BTW


This is basically what I have but with a matte finish. Pressed or stamped checkering and plastic barrel bands......Thanks


I'd know that rifle anywhere. It's resting in my safe right now. BTW its not just a "W" it's a "JM" "W"

I'd leave it just like it is. For hunting it's perfect. So what if the wood is stained birch, scratches cover easy with Old English Scratch Cover for dark wood. Plus it adds to character. Well to be honest, I never cared for laminates.

Before you look at the other requirements, keep in mind that you need a 336 fore-end.
Anything off an 1895 (which is what WGP has listed) is going to have a larger barrel channel and will:
A) Look like crap on a 336.
B) Not fit worth a crap on a 336.


If you want laminate, go to Boyds.
You can get a stock set that doesn't require any other modification to the rifle.
