CUT AND RECROWN
So, after carrying a .35 Marlin 336 and .30-06 Remmy 760 this season, I'm thinking about a few modifications. The 760 feels like a iron waste pipe after toting the little Marlin. I had this idea that I'd have a unique 20" brl unlike the factory 18.5" or the 22". I would also get rid of 1/4" of the moisture damaged and peely buttstock end and have a slick recoil pad installed. Since I'm in my right mind, it would also get a steel or aluminum left handed safety. Then, I thought "I'm not that creative... someone has to have already had these ideas!" Have any of you ever had a 760 cut and recrowned? Who did the job? What was the outcome? Was there a loss in performance? How about a metal LH safety? I don't want any plastic garbage.
