    Default Seeking Marlin stock fitting in western PA

    I have a Marlin 1894 Dark on the way, and I want to swap out the furniture for something traditional.

    I've gotten far enough on my own to learn that a 336 replacement PG stock will work, but it requires drilling tang screw holes with relative precision. It's fairly simple, but I don't have a drill press and I don't want to screw up an $80 stock. I also want to install a swivel stud on the bottom of the stock. Any gunsmiths within 30-45 minutes of Pittsburgh who've done this and might have the time to knock it out?

    Thanks!

    Finding a gunsmith who isn't backed up is a real challenge.
