Could any of you guy tell me how wide the octagon barrel is on the 336CB at the receiver and where the forend meets the cap? I need a forend to fit my current project. I'm using a barrel for a Zane Grey Century that I shortend to 16.5 in. I also converted it to a straight stock but finding a forend has been a real pain. HYDE

Sorry, no idea on the dimension you ask but the rifle you are building looks really cool!

Good luck and post the finished pictures.

At forend- .812"


On my 1895CB in 45-70;
At chamber- .870"
At forend- .792"

On 1894CB in 45 LC;
At chamber- .840"
At forend- .792"

I have a 1894CB in 32 mag and a 1894CCL in 32-20 that I would measure for you but they are locked in the safe.

Hope this helps :wink:

You should get 4 or 5 of those barrels. You could build everything but a 25-36 . All you have to do is send them of to be rebored in say 32-40 , 38-55 , 32 speciel. You could still have one relined in 25-36. The possibility's are endless .

Thanks guys, this one is .852 at the receiver end and .730 at the cap. I guess I'll have to keep looking. HYDE

Sounds like one from a 30-30 and a little glass bedding to make it fit like a glove. Look at the post on free floating a barrel in the reference section down near the bottom.

Sure-Shot, I've bedded a few bolt actions and and two muzzleloaders so I might give that a try. I've been a cabinet builder for 28yrs. so this afternoon I set up my router table to square up the barrel channel on an old forearm. I'm going to epoxy walnut strips in the forarm and remachine it to match the barrel,if it works out like I think it will be almost invisible. HYDE

Wish I had the talent to do that type of work. Post some pictures when you get it done.
