Wow, what a description.

When you get the cutting and filing done which grit sand paper do you use?

Seems that I learn something on this board weekly whether I want to or not. :wink:

Thanks Hyde, your a champ.

I start with 100gr. to get the scratches from the file out then work down to wet sanding with 400gr.

I really am amazed at some of ya'lls gunsmithing. I can do anything with a piece of wood, but when it comes to metal working I get scared to easily. After looking at the pictures, I almost feel like I could do that. But that is easily said sitting at a computer desk.

Nice work Hyde!

Say Hyde....I don't suppose You'd consider parting with one of those straight tangs now wouldja? Like one of the other respondees said; I'm pretty darn good with wood; but metals another thing altogether.

Billy, those two trigger plates are both unfinished curved ones that still need to be fitted to a stock and reblued. They would still need filed to fit your stock. If you want to try and finish one I'll give you one. Anybody can do this stuff, I've built cabinets in a factory for almost 28 yrs. but I love working with metal. If you can do wood you can do this. You could do these plates in 2 min. on a belt sander but what fun would that be. You can't beat a good file.:D :D :D

Hyde, PM sent.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart! God forbid I ever feel the need to return this gun to a P/G config. You guys are the best!
PS- Ill try to post pics of this project when finished. It'll entail:
'72 Marlin 336A(originally a JCPenny 3040)
Straight stock(courtesy of MarlinMan93)
DRC straight grip compatible, Big Loop Lever (via Brownells)
probably gonna use XS sights
