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?

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.

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

I never could understand the 32 special over the 30-30. Now a 38-55 I’d a larger bore and worthwhile. But a 30-30 has always done everything I needed. Except when I lived in Alaska. Then I carried a 45-70 guide gun or a 50 Alaskan.
