2000 and 2000L differences

Is the only difference the stock? From what I've been reading the barreled action is the same on both rifles.
I have a 2000 and thinking about putting changing the stock to a Boyds and they only list the 2000L.

Didn't the "L" indicate a laminate stock?

Yep. Just checking if there are other differences.
Sent a note to Boyds too.

Try again sir.....


My marlin 2000L originally had them and I had to find a replacement set since mine were missing.
Thanks to one of our Canadian members selling me his spare set I was able to put my 2000L back to original stock condition.





Only difference between the 2000 and the 2000L is the 2000 has a composite stock and the 2000L has a laminate stock.

Mine had some of the parts but not all the parts. I know it’s a little out of focus but if you look at the stock you can see that it was factory cut for the rear sight base on the side of the receiver.

The trigger leaves a lot to be desired and I have yet to test it for accuracy. Another member in the marlin forum explained the history of the model 880sq...
the first of which were built using 2000 barrels and were quite accurate so e expect this 2000L to be accurate.
Will it keep up with my annie? Probably not. Will it hold it own compared to my CZ455’s? More than likely.

The bipod is being used to prop it up for the photo. The only part that seems to be missing is the front sling swivel.

Last week I put a scope on it. First trip to the range with the scope on it I was astonished at how accurate it is.

The great thing “I think” about your stock is you can paint it. When “if” you get tired of that paint scheme you can strip/sand and paint it different.

I wouldn’t do that to my laminate stock but a Fiberglass stock you bet.

I have been thinking of possibly getting another stock for bench shooting, maybe not... i dent mean that I would t get rid of this one,just a different stock than this for bench.

More of a pistol grip and less angle to the for stock.

Shoot , right now I don’t even know how to get this stock off. I think you have to remove the rail to get to the takedown screws.

You picture and the bipod thread I just read previously before looking at your post got me to thinking.

I wonder how well it would shoot with a pod and rear bag.

2000 L

looking in a gun digest the 2000 L should have a match chamber and an adjustable 2 stage trigger.

If it’s two stage then it don’t feel like one. I have not had the stock off or looked up much info on them either.

I had an early 880SQ , beautiful bore in the gun , lousy trigger ! I replaced the plastic stock with the laminated wood stock and it made a nice rifle . With some work on the sear the trigger improved but the gun never shot a good as my CZ 452 Varmint so I sold it.
