    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.

    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 ;)

    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.

    I haven't had it to the range yet, But holding it feels good, balanced and not too heavy. I did fire off a couple of shots in my shop.. that felt Nice!!! I really like the DIP trigger, crisp.

    I see you figured it out.. Kel Tec SU16 collapsable stock mount. It will take some finageling to get it right and a few spacer washers... Have fun...
