Marlin experts?
 
Any of you guys know where I can get a replacement stock for a Marlin model 989? I have searched, and searched with no luck. I am doing a favor for a friend and need to find a stock for him. Is there any other models that are compatible with a 989? Thanks.

Check w/ Numrich- (gunpartscorp.com) looks like there are a couple of close model numbers that should exchange. They run about $44 plus shipping. Have you asked Marlin?

Did you try gunbroker or ebay?

If you are talking 989M2, HARD to find complete...

However, there are things you can do...
If you have the 989-M2 handguard, you're halfway home, just get a Walnut Marlin 70 stock,
sand the area until the handguard fits nicely, and sand the tip for the barrel band to fit.

If it's a 989 (with no M-2), any Old-style stock that fits a 70 (non-Papoose) will fit.

Also, if you wish to Upgrade to a Boyd's Thumbhole stock, or any New-Model (post 1994) stock,
use a DIP Marlin 795 trigger guard & trigger combo,
as the OEM Old-style trigger guard won't go on the new model stocks.


I'm actually surprised that one of the folks that has a stock duplicator hasn't made copies of the
989-M2 stock & handguard & sold 'em for new rifles...folks would buy 'em FAST!

One other final option...recently a guy took an M1 stock ($15 at a gun show) and fitted
a Marlin 795 in it. It takes a fair amount of carving skills, but it can be done with nothing more than
sharp chisels and a dremel for sanding :)
