I am going to replace the stock on my 336 and am wondering is there a thread on the correct way to do this?

If you go to some of the after market lumber houses web pages they usually have good info. You'll need a lot of patience and some good tools and with time and care it's all good.

Not much to it besides pulling a couple screws and taking it off. Been a while but I believe you've got one or two tang screws then you pull the but plate and use a long screwdriver to pull a bolt that is way up inside the stock. Pull the old one off and shove the new one on. If the new one is overly tight, you might have to do some light sanding or filing.

By the way, what are your plans for the stock you are taking off? I'm looking for a take off to cut down to youth size for my boys rifle. Might be interested in yours.

There is only one tang screw. Remove it and slide the stock off toward the rear. Most stocks swaps will fit just fine, but I have run across a few older guns that had a little different curve to the tang and they needed some fitting. You'll just have to see how it matches up.

Thanks for all the info.dave I plan on keeping the stock for now if you look at my other thread (336 stock) there was a fellow on there that had a stock you could possibly get from him. His name was Ric.

Hawg is right only 1 tang screw and off comes the stock.
Well heck, are Glenfields different? I once helped a guy change the stock on his glenfield 30-30 and I'd swear there was a screw we had to get to going up into the wrist of the stock from the back end. It's been a while and maybe I'm getting that rifle mixed up with another one. Still, I was pretty certain there was the long screw from the rear AND a tang screw or two.

already made the swap out. There was only 1 screw in the tang!! simplest swap that could have ever been. The stock is drilled for a long screw thru the wrist but the 336 marlin doesn't use that screw.Thank everyone for all the help.

The hole in the stock that runs in the center back toward the butt plate is for the hammer strut to ride in.
