    Has anyone worked with one of these before?

    Thinking of putting a Glenfield 25 into one of these.

    Was wondering how much materials removal needs to be done.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure on the 25 but I put one on my Glenfield model 60, and it worked out great. Which one are you looking at? I think they make 2, or 3 different style fiber stocks.

    Cool. did you have to remove any material?

    I was only aware of this style:
    http://www.combathunting.com/product.cgi?group=107&product=24965

    Was looking at this tan or the black.
    I understand these are designed for the semi-auto, but I was thinking of carving out a spot for the bolt of the 25.

    thanks!

    I didnt have to make any mods for the Model 60 but the front take down screw was to short so I have to find one longer to replace it. The stock in your link looks just like mine only mine is black I like that tan though it looks pretty good.

    I used one on an old Marlin 60 and had no problems.
    Mounted a $40 red dot from Truglo and it's a great plinker

    I put one on my 60, and had to take a little off the rear where the action sits so it would work with the provided screw, other than that it works pretty well.

    It will take some serious modification to put a Fiberforce stock on an old 1970's Marlin 25...
    In fact, ain't quite sure how well it would work...

    Might be better off with an airsoft bolt-action stock like a Blaser LS1...or any airsoft bolt-action style stock...
    plenty of Tacti-kewl stocks out there...look up Defcon and his Marlin XT22 mods...google is your friend ;)

    Boyd's has a laminate replacement...the model 81 is the tube-fed version of the 20/25/80/780...
    so you have to mod for mag-feed...but it ain't hard for a woodworker...

    I guess I should update more often.

    I ended up buying a 25 stock and using the fiberforce stock for a Marlin 60 I picked up.

    Thanks for the info on Defcon. I will check out how the airsoft thing might work...

    thx

    I bought one of these stcoks and when I went to tighten up that rear screw to my 60 the dang thing broke (cracked) the back of the trigger guard, so when I took it back apart to see what happened I had ruined my trigger guard and was not able to put the wood stock back on the rifle....been looking for a good trigger guard ever since, but everone thinks their New style trigger guards are worth a fortune. So the gun went back into the synthetic stock and their it lives.
