Default Marlin 60 tactical mod

I am looking for info and pics from anyone that has modified their model 60 be it tactical or bull pup or whatever. I am going to attempt my own tactical mod using various parts from AR15 or whatever I can find that works. just trying to see what others have done for inspiration and guidance.

I'm pretty sure I've seen one stuffed into an air rifle bull pup stock. It was quite an operation. I think it was at you tube, you search it and see.

Oh looky here a bull pup stock: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.bullpupgunstocks.com/graphics/stocks/marlin_60.gif&imgrefurl=http://www.bullpupgunstocks.com/&h=119&w=341&sz=7&tbnid=S3jII5FrAyAQEM:&tbnh=45&tb nw=128&zoom=1&usg=__57om3IlOldLVaaSYmgiIPX4-BSE=&docid=4atS-8rDIUpZ2M&hl=en&sa=X&ei=lB8SULnMG8TJiwKS3oG4Cg&sqi =2&ved=0CGgQ9QEwAQ&dur=7486

Thanks for the links. I am thinking about getting a Plastic stock and cutting it down and adding a collapsable stock, adding anFAL forend and a bipod fore grip. Doing a true mod and. OT just stuffing it into an Airsoft frame

While the 60 is great on several levels, the availability of aftermarket stocks is limited...
Boyd's Riflestocks has the best selection of Laminates, and occasionally they'll do the Tactical version for the 60.

The Marlin 795 lends itself to tactical mods far easier...and looks better in them due to having a box mag instead of a tube

That being said, check out the Well P90 airsoft stock...many folks have fit 1022's & 795's in 'em...wouldn't be that much more work for a 60

Modification is done!!! Now time to go have some fun with my newest toy.

Flash hider is from Brownell's, slip on. Had to do some grinding on the bottom to allow the barrel feed tube to slide out.
ATI stock with the back cut off and a collapsible stock installed on a Kel Tec mount ($20 from Kel Tec) with some modification.
Picatinny rails on forend sides and bottom with AFG grip. Getting a bipod in future.
DIP trigger
UTAC 2.5-10X40 scope on a UTG weaver to Picatinny.

I cut the feed tube by 1.5 inches to allow more room for the flash hider. I just have to get a couple of black encap nuts to cover the Kel Tec mount bolts. All in all, had fun doing it.

Now I am looking for a Marlin 795SS to do the same thing but I think I want to put a FAL style forend and shorten the barrel.
