The first of this month I posted that I had a 336 Texan I wanted converted to 336CB in .30-30. I sent the rifle to Marlin and in a week, received a letter acknowledging receipt of the rifle and money order. I had previously asked them how much more it would be to replace the buttstock to match the new forearm as they said they don't replace anything from the receiver back. They informed me it would be about $80.00 for the buttstock and I opted not to do that thinking I would just strip and stain the old butt to match the new forearm. I just got my "new" Marlin 336CB today and is it a beauty. I feel fortunate that they still had parts to make the .30-30CB conversion. On top of that, apparently, they didn't think the original buttstock looked good enough and they replaced it free of charge. They also returned all my old parts. I can hardly wait to sight this beauty in. It may be the only 336CB with a saddle ring and along with the factory letter maybe it will be a collector someday. Kudos to Marlin and their good and prompt service.
