I have enjoyed reading the threads of information over the years and figured it is time to join. Been a Marlin owner since 1976 and killed my first buck with my old trusty 336 .35 in the early 80s. Right now I have 2 Marlins..both out of commission. A 336sc .35 with an ugly barrel that needs a replacement (early 60s or late 50s model), and an inherited 444s (1976)with a broken stock.. Hope to have one or the other ready for service this Fall.

I retired the 336sc .35 about 10 years ago after I realized that sighting in the rifle was more difficult than it should be. I looked down the barrel and noticed what appeared to be a 2-inch hairline crack crossing some of the microgooves (starting 4-5 inches from the the muzzle). Unfortunately, Marlin will no longer work on guns that are 50 years old so I'm looking for advice on finding a replacement barrel.

The 444s is my father-in-laws. Apparently, the last time he hunted (15+ yrs ago) he slipped and the gun stock ended up between him and a rock ledge..he was fine but the stock had a clean break (pieces missing). Looking for advise on a replacement walnut stock for that one. Having never shot a 444, I assume the learning curve on recoil is rather steep!

Last but not least, is my bolt-action 22 mag. Not a pretty rifle but puts a whallup on raccoons and undesired feral pests. Love that gun! I bought it a 15-20 years ago when we had a surge in the raccoon population. While a regular 22 lr will do, the 22 mag does it better..

Cheers!

Welcome aboard!!

Numerich should have a replacement barrel for your 336 .35Rem and a stock for your 444 as well. Boyd's also makes good replacement stocks.

Btw, a couple of coonhounds do wonders for helping to reduce the raccoon populations:biggrin:
