Yes, as a matter of fact, Marlin would probably do it for under $200.00. Call 800-544-8892 and ask them.

Question Masterifleman:

Where would Marlin get a Model 336 / 375 caliber barrel?

I would love to have one myself but to my knowlege they haven't made a 375 since 1983. Am I wrong?

Thanks, djh

This is purely a guess but just because they stopped manufacture doesn't mean that they don't have a shelf full of barrels left over from when they did. Again, just a guess on my part. And if one were truly interested in this conversion, it would certainly be worth a call to find out.

From what I'v seen it can be hard to get them to work on discontinued items so they might not do it even if they did have barrels.
That said, its likely they'd put a 38/55 barrel on it that you could get rechambered for the 375 or if you handload, again from what I gather, I think you could load up pretty close to 375 velocities.

Made a call to the Marlin shop. They said it could be done and that the actions are the same between the 336 and the mod. 375. However, they did not have any more barrels.

I had him take a Model 336C barrel that was a 30-30 caliber and rebore it to 38-55. A 375 would be no problem for him. I recommend him 100%.

He cut rifles the barrel and hand laps it. It is the third most accurate gun I own.

Al is a top notch gunsmith. Coat for him to do mine was $ 130.00.

Hope this helps.

TedH , It's a very easy job if you can find a barrel and have the right tools. I found a 375 and a 356 barrel on ebay last year. I'm very happy with the 375, still looking for nice 336 for the 356 barrel. The 375 started as a 30AW from walmart. HYDE

Hello Hyde:

Yep, I remember that 356 on e-bay. I was bidding against you and failed to hit the button fast enough for my computer to react there at the end. I wanted that 356 bad.

Bet it will be a long time before another comes up, if ever.

I know you will enjoy it when you get it on a receiver.

Only true 200 yd. lever gun Marlin has built.

Enjoy, D.J. Hyde from Texas

Hello djh , you almost had another shot at that barrel this winter. My union was ( still is ) on strike for the last 6 mo. I found a new job at a better shop about a month ago. It was a long winter with NO INTERNET untill two days ago. We got through without having to sell any of my guns but , it was close. HYDE
