I have a Marlin 336 RC in 30/30 .I found out it was made in 1966. The stock has cracked pretty bad and as I look for a Pistol grip walnut checkered replacement I dont know if it has crossbolt safety? Can someone give me some advice. I'm looking on e-bay and some of the sets (stock & forend) go for about $275 is that about right? The forend uses a barrel band.

that price seems way inflated. check out Brownell's and MidwayUSA as both of them have stocks way cheaper. Brownell's has the the buttstock and forearm for less than $80 for the set and factory Marlin buttstock for $79.73 and the forearm for $32.85 OEM walnut and checkered, ready to install. even the Marlin OEM stuff is less than half that $275 price. Brownell's is good place to buy gun parts from and the service is great and shipping is fast.

Welcome aboard Biker! My first lever gun was a '73-made Model 94 Winchester. I remember well telling my father why I thought a Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum would make a better deer gun than the Winnie. Woke up Christmas morning and got the Winchester. Still have the gun more out of respect for dad than satisfaction with the product.

I don't know if you got your other question answered. From the date of manufacture I would say your rifle doesn't have the cross bolt safety. If it does you would have a button in the receiver just below the hammer that can be pushed back and forth, left to right, that activates a hammer block type safety.

Welcome to Marlin Forum and the brotherhood of lever action owners. Enjoy!
