Been thinking about doing a straight grip conversion on my 1978 336. What are the benefits of doing such? I have a Rossi 92 in .45 colt and a Henry in .22.
I agree with AZsparrow.................I don't think there ARE any benefits, either..................Its all in the eye of the beholder..............I don't think there are any "benefits" really, other than personal preferences in appearances perhaps? I have rifles of both types, and as far as actual use out in the field etc., I don't notice any advantage of one over the other.. but that's just me. Do whatever makes you happy... :biggrin:
I like both, but on my long barreled Cowboy 30-30, the pistol grip conversion was well worth it!
On the 336SSLTD 35Rem with the lighter front end... Straight feels GREAT!
...either way you can't lose, but I do 2nd what the others have posted about finding the parts. Good luck on the project and let us know how it turns out!!!
plumbernater, there's only one thing you can do... you'll have to get yet another rifle needing some lovin' and fix 'er up straight... :flute:My 45-70 is my only straight grip and I simply love the rifle. My 30-30's have the pistol grip. I too have the notion to do the straight grip on one of the 30-30. My problem is one is a Glennfeild, i like the deer on the grip. The other is my 336 that I have vad since 1976. Dont want to do anything to the best deer rifle Ive owned. It has wear marks from carring the rifle for so many years. all made by me. I did redo the stocks awhile back. It has real dark walnut.
