Pre-83 Hammer Extension?

2948 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Bedrock
I recently aquired a '57 336a in 35 rem and I set it up with a leupold M8 fixed 4x. I used a nice set of bausch and lomb 2 piece rings that I got off of ebay but one of the last things I need to do is add a hammer extension to it. I am having a hard time finding a store with the pre '83 hammer exrensions in stock. Anyone know why or does anyone have one they want to part with? I also need to remove the old sling loop from the front stud and then drill it out so I can add a detachable sling in the future. Then it will be ready to go. Thanks for any help.

Had the same problem as Halwg with my 51A in 35 rem.. Swany told me that the early 336's that weren"t D&T'd had different hammer angles and no grooves milled in bottom of hammer. I purchased an extension from Numrich and it didn't work because it was so thick the bolt hit it when you tried to lever in a round. Good luck on the search.
