I have a 336C, purchased before they were installing the hammer block safety.
I have wondered whether it is possible to retrofit the older Marlins for the safety, or whether you feel it is necessary.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
Thanks

I don't know if it is possible , but PLEASE DON'T :eek:
If you are uncomfortable with the rifle and want the c/b safety , then sell the rifle to someone that is and buy one made after 1984.

Aint neccessary if you stick to the Ten Gun Safety Rules...

Its also got a Half-cock safety...read up on how to use that properly, and practice with an UNLOADED gun pointed in a safe direction!
Once you get used to it, you'll wonder why you ever wanted a triggerblock one ;)

Thanks, Big Shrek
I'm familiar with the half-cock safety, but I thought the hammer block safety might be a bit more fail-safe.

I am with the rest of the gang! Don't do It! :eek: There is only one safety that will always work and that is the one between your ears! Half cock as has been said is a safety. Except on me and I go off half cocked all the time;) I have had my 336C for 38 years and it has never gone off accidentally! :D

I got to thinking about your question and I remember getting something from Marlin about them changing it to a safety type. Of course I did not as I think it is ridicules. But I just recalled it so I thought I would add to the conversation.:rolleyes: or not:D

The pre safety are sought after by collectors don't do it.I rather see you keep it and go buy one with a safety!
