Marlin/Glenfield 30a Help

882 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  pumpgun
last evening I picked up a Glenfield 30a at a super great price. $80.00. Problem is, the forend has a crack and the butt stock has a small crack. metal and blueing ar 95%. Has anyone had any experiance in replacing the stock on one of these? If so, could you point me in the right direction. I would like to give this little gun a new makeover. Thanks

Ebay..... search 336 stocks...lots of used ones
Brownells.... brand new walnut set for $80
Just verify dimensions with seller if buying used..30A is mechanically identical to the 336.
thanks Joe!
80 bucks is a steal. since you hve so little in it, i'd get replacement wood and get a smith to chop it to 18" and fit the wood on it. it might take some fiddling to get it right. you'd then have a sweet little carbine.
Thats my plan pumpgun. Im going to the smith (Vince at Fayette Gun Shop) on Monday. This will make a great brush gun..excited!!
smart move. you might even go down to 16.5" i have a 336 sdt with the 16.5" barrel and it is perfect. you won't lose aything appreciable cutting it down either. it will still knock deer out. then look for a nice little scope like the bushell banner 1.5-4.5x32 for it. its about $75 and fits those little marlins perfectly. show some pics when its done. i love the shorties.
