Default Marlin Hammer extension

I have an old Marlin 336 Rc 30-30 made in 1950. I have scoped the gun and now I am finding it difficult to get a hammer spur extension that will fit this gun. Marlin says they don't carry any that will fit and so far everywhere that I have checked only carries extensions that fit Marlins from about the 1960's to present. My questions would be (1 Is there an extension that will work on this gun. 2 Is there a hammer from a newer model 336 that will fit my gun so that I may fit an extension to that hammer. 3 Does anyone have an idea on how to maybe work on the existing hammer to make it work with an extension for another model gun.) Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, mthom

This is for the new style hammer, can your rifle be modified to have the new style hammer?

Default Marlin Hammer

Ok guys, to answer a couple of your questions the width of the hammer is .277 and the thickness is .130 at the tip and no pics cause I'm too dumb to post them. Also, I suppose I could put higher scope rings to help alleviate the problem some but I like the hammer spur extension for cocking the gun. I also suppose the rifle could be altered to fit a newer hammer but i was wondering if anyone out there had any experience with fixing this issue.

Does your current hammer have a threaded hole for an extension now??

If so find the thread pattern and size get a small aluminum rod tap to fit and cut it to length paint to match. No need to mod the gun itself.

Default Marlin Hammer

The Uncle Mikes extension is one that I bought thinking it might work but it did not. As for the question about the hammer having a threaded hole, it does not but that is an interesting thought to maybe pursue. I would have to find something suitable to use as the spur extension. If possible though I would like the fix to be minimally labor intensive as possible.

Pull out the welder and attach the shank from an old bolt.
