Bear Tracks – Southwest Marlin 336 .35 Rem.
Started out with this rifle:
Marlin 336 awaiting a transformation.
Reshaped the original wood:
Bulky 1952 Marlin 336 furniture in the midst of a transformation to a sleek 1890s style.
Black DuraCoat and gloss clear coat on the metal, hand-rubbed oil finish on the stock and forend, and the character of the rifle is completely transformed. This was one of my favorite projects. Click any image to enlarge:
