I love Marlin rimfires...

...but the aftermarket support for them sucks ass. The best quality for your money and extremely accurate I just adore these little jewels, from my mod. 60's to my 883. But what do you do when you want more?


Make you own shit I guess.

My newly aquired 917v on Academy gift cards.


It will soon look like this...


First of you gotta remove the barrel and do a lil sanding.


Then you havta suck it up and cut up a brand new (nothing wrong with it shoots fine) gun.


Now I clamped it for some reason...


Oh that was to let the glue and filler dry...sorry.

Looks like a lot of work. Are you going to put a layer or two of fiberglass over the whole thing to give it additional strength?

edit: never mind, its already done

If it were a centerfire I would for sure but I don't forsee any problems but time will tell.

I was thinking the same thing. I *adjusted* the factory stock on a 10/22 a long time ago and the biggest mistake I made was not reassembling the fcg during the process. I put the trigger guard back in a few times, but it didn't have the trigger installed. The trigger ended up >< that much too far from the grip. The OPs grip looks even farther away from the trigger than what I ended up with. I hope it works out for him.

That's what I thought too.


I'm guessing that the pair of rifles are 308's.

Definitely different camo stocks.

It is. I got the length of pull correct but I made the grip way too far back. Luckily I have long fingers and it still works "okay". For $12.98 it was an excellent learning experience and I only used the limited tools I had at hand...namely a chisel, router, jigsaw, and sandpaper.

Yep, I was refering to matching by meaning the paint jobs. The other two are H&R survivor .308's, haven't done much to them other than minor stuff.

Looks like a goose neck. Good job, that was a LOT of work. I too am a fan of Marlins.

Haters.








I know the butt stock is ugly but in my defense I didn't have a picture to go by since I don't have internet at the house and I left my midway catalogue in the crapper at work. I did have a vague image of what it should look like...which apprently was actually a paddle.

It may get redone but prolly not anytime soon because the damn thing is just too fun to shoot and a few days down time sucked.
