Here they are rare indeed. I've never actually seen one in th flesh. I can't imagine a handier carry rifle, though. Do there usually command a much higher price than regular 336's? If so, how much. Where this is leading is my beginning to want to own one!
They only made them for about three years. But I expect if you look on gunsamerica and gunbroker you can still find a new one. I bought mine a couple years ago, the stock is alittle short for me so when I plan on shooting it I take the stock off my 1894FG and put it on the Y.
demented- doc holliday has/had a spikehorn for sale. give him a shout. they are rare. i looked nationwide for one and the only place to find them now is from a individual willing to part. unless a store owner rat-holed one somewhere, you probably won't find one from a dealer.
Reid, Would you be interested in giving a line by line on how to accomplish this? What steps, what parts will need replacing and sources? You may have hit on a way to make yourself some extra cash, too. There may be a market for this "conversion" you've come up with. How did you move your front sight dovetail?
Actually all I did was take it to a gunsmith. I bought the rifle for $150 at a pawn shop and had the barrel and magazine cut and a trigger and action job done. $150 more, so $300 total and no cross bolt safty.
Local gun store in town has two of them. Their prices are usually high but they might cut a deal to get rid of them. I know they've had them for at least a year now. Texas Gun is it's name. They are located on Bandera Road in San Antonio, Texas.
