Well how bad is the stock break and where is it at? If it were a new, clean break, some guys can repair the original stock with hardly any visible traces. For that Marlin you may be investing alot of money to get a new stock and having to fit it or someone else do it. In comparision to the value of the run of the mill 336 that is. So I guess you might want to try doing it yourself. Hopefully any replacement stock has a little extra wood versus being a sloppy fit.

one side of the stock where it slides into the tang and is held in place by the tang screw is completly broke off, the stocks at midway are already finnished so you wont have to do that, i think i can slide it on to the tang and run the screw thru the stock and tighten it,the rifle has sentimental value so i would like to try fix it.

Instead of ordering on the internet, call midway, give them the model number, year of make (if known) and serial number, they will make sure you get the right stock.
