A.) Straight stock. B.) Lower tang for a straight stock model. C.) Straight stock lever. Quick and easy swap if you can find the parts. Lower tang is usually the most elusive. I have one sitting on my shelf I planned to use for a project but haven’t gotten around to it. If you’re good with metal work you could refashion one.

Welcome from the sunshine state! Those parts show up from time to time but eBay and gunbroker are your best bet to find them.

How good are you with tools? Easy to cut down your curved trigger guard to accept a straight stock. I have done it many times. Have a few lower guards on hand, can fashion one for cost.

This 336 left the factory as a pistol grip.. I cut off the stock & filed flat, did the same with the lower tang. Tried reshaping my own lever, but didn’t heat it enough & it broke. Found a straight lever in the classifieds.

Lookup Sharps40 Texan conversion, & you’ll find the info you need.

Looking good to me.
The fore stock looks really good,
I'd have to look more than twice ate the buttstock to figure it out.
What tools did you use?
