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.

Jesse might rebore it for you: http://www.35caliber.com/ give him a call (541-942-1342). It says to do so for "others on request." My Marlin to .38-55 cost $250 including shipping back to me.

Sounds like a good reason to me. Something about the name .. 32 Special just sounds cool.

Not near my manuals. Is the 32 Special a rimmed case like the 30-30? Same case?

Found my answer from my friend Google. The 30-30 is the parent case. I was confusing it with the Remington round.

See Jess for a 38-55 redo , I did and youll find it easy to load /brass is easy to find and a bigger hole created by a cast boolit is easier to find when you have a shorter walk up to the critter you kilt /Ed
