Try Gunbroker. There's a place up in Canada - W.G.P. - that usually has a set for sale.

Not all that cheap, but they're good people.

You can do what I did with my 444's. Buy a 336XLR and switch stocks. Then you'll have a cool looking 336 and a 24"barrel 336SS.

I got the large SBL lever from W.G.P. Great service. Looking at getting a laminate set for my 1895GS to do a SBL conversion on it.

Were you able to swap the stocks from a 336 to a 444?? Or were both guns 444's? I'd like to do exactly that and if I knew it would work I have a 444 in mind I could buy for the walnut to go on my 35 XLR

They were both 444's. Don't know if you can switch with a different caliber.

Just to be clear, that picture is of an STD not an XLR. XLR's are pistol gripped not straight. You can certainly put a straight butt stock on your gun but that requires changing out the trigger plate and lever as well.

The other issue is the fore end on the XLR's is capped and most standard 336's (C, W, etc.) have barrel bands.

I was wondering if anyone knew if I could buy a set of the XLR stocks for my 30-30. I love the wood but I really love the look of the XLR stocks. Just so everyone knows what Im talking about, here is a picture.


You can get a laminate stock from Boyds in a variety of colors/ styles
for 336's of either style.
They got some that look just like XLR's with a rubber pad and all.
Boyds: MARLIN® 336 PISTOL GRIP STOCK WALNUT (FINISHED)

Just select 336 Marlin w/ barrel band and click custom options.

Lol that is my XLR which was converted to straight stock, where did you find the photo? OP, swapping buttstocks is easy if you have the right parts but good luck finding a laminated forearm that fits a barrel band. There were a few made as I have seen a couple but they are as rare as hen's teeth. Might be easier to modify a regular forearm to fit.

This is a gun I put together that has a stock
on it from the place Brocky's talking about.
I just bought another one from them too, but
you can get one from Boyds for about the same
price by the time you pay shipping.
