Default Re -barrel a Marlin 336 ? 30-30 to .32 special?

Thinking ?
Instead of buying another rifle..
How about just re -barrel my 336 Marlin 30-30 to .32 special ?
Surly someone can do the job ? Cheaper than buying another rifle?
Anyone else swap barrel to another caliber?
Doable?

Please excuse my ignorance. Can you rebore a rifle cheaper than you can purchase a new barrel?

I recently rebarreled a Marlin back to 30-30 with a barrel I bought of of Gunparts.com. The rebarrel part was easy $50. at the local smith. I don't know where you would come up with a 32 Special barrel.

I stand for the Republic and all who oppose me be cursed!
