Hey Folk's
My pet 780 was involved in an accident a few weeks back and the stock is damaged pretty bad.

Have tried gun parts, no luck.

Any one know where I can find a nice original stock for a '72 vintage marlin 780?

Will pay fair price.

Thank you,
Henry t

I would suggest calling Marlin.

Besides asking them where you can get what you descibed, ask them if the 880 stock will fit your 780. They have 3 different ones on the web site.

Other than that, try Numrich.

Good luck,

Wannabe

What happened?

Is your 780 stock beyond repair? What damage did it take?

Considering the 780 stock is held in place by only one bolt, one can do considerable work on the stock and still have it work. However, if you want it to look and handle as original, I can understand replacement.

If you ever find a replacement, let me know what you are planning on doing with the damaged stock. I have a 780 and would like a 'beater' stock for it! Thanks!

BTW, I just looked at a Model 20 and I wonder if it would be the same stock?!?!

Plainsman,
The gleinfeild 20, Marlin 25, and the marlin 780 are the same basic rifles. The stocks will interchange.

I have repaired my 780 stock but it is not perfect. If I can find a nice original stock at a fair price I'm going to buy it. I'll keep my damaged stock for hard times.
