    I have an ATI stock on my old 60 now but I hate that it is just too short. On top of that I use it for raccoon hunting and the rails I screwed into the side just don't work well when my flashlight gets banged around. I started looking and found this stock on Ebay. Did some looking into it and found it on the manufactures site. Never seen it before anyone else every used one? Seems to have some good reviews.

    IMG_20170512_114100074[1].jpg Hows this for a Marlin 795 ? I milled a model 60 stock for it. loving it now . the Williams firesights are great. They make for easier follow up shots and are fully adjustable for elevation and windage

    I have seen that stock somewhere. It is something new (2 to 3 years old at most).
    As I can remember the key design of that one is to be fully adjustable (angle + lenght) regarding the stock, the forearm and the grip.

    I do not know what it worth, but I guess that for a 22LR it doesn't need to be very strong.

    I bet it can be interesting for the youngest shooter: they would be able to adapt the stock regarding to their growth...

    Thank you for the welcoming comments. That is a very nice rifle but they 795 doesn't work here in NYS. Otherwise I would have it for the shorter barrel length.

    The product listing says it is in stock and shipping. I poked around their facebook page it looks like it just went into production a few months ago. Might have been select pre-production or something before that.

    It's not priced bad for everything that it is. It looks to be full of adjustment as buldozer said. I remember when I first got my 60 too many moons ago it was too long. Now it's too short. It also has a unique solution to getting a sight picture with a buffer tube. Never seen a stock pivot like that.

    Anyway I'm going to order one and I'll be sure to post a review. Would still like to keep the thread going and get everyone's thoughts while I wait for it.

    Hi everyone. I received a PM about this thread. I want to introduce myself. I'm Steve the owner of Hunting Tactical. Ugean I don't want to hijack your thread. I just wanted to answer your questions and thank you for purchasing (or about to) our HT60 stock.

    The HT60 entered production this past February. Prior to that we were taking pre-orders. It is in stock and will ship usually same day. We are located in NY so yes the stock is NYS compliant on the model 60 (not on the 795 as you stated above).

    Farmingville: how did you deal with the differences in the trigger housings? The housings have a different supporting surface. With the HT60 we use a spacer that needs to be installed with the 795. I just want to make sure you don't damage your rifle. Without the spacer the you can crack the trigger housing and the gun tends to get bound up when firing.

    Anyway like I said I don't want to hijack the thread. I'll keep an eye on this answer any questions. Also Please feel free to PM me or contact us at [email protected]

    tacticle Steve,

    Hello Steve, great stock your company has. as far as the stock I did for the 795 I milled the stock the same as the way the original stock comes from the factory for the longer trigger guard to be accepted therefore a spacer is not needed. Thankyou for responding to us take care and thank you Scott

    Farmingville, Thank you and glad it is working for you.

    Ugean Thank you for your order. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

    For others reading this later what I'm referring to is not just the length of the trigger area on the stock but also the shape. The 795 has a very slight arch to the width of the trigger area. If you mill it out flat you'll leave a gap in the center where it is unsupported.

    Steve If its done rite nothing is unsupported . their is no gap in between the angle of the trigger guard at that arch and the stock with the width and length of the trigger guard and stock . fits without gaps or spaces .

    Agreed if you do it right. I just wanted to make sure people are aware it there is a difference and a shape to the 795 that is different. You can't just carve out a 60 stock. Sounds like you did it right.

    Nice job! Does that actually hide the flash or is it just for show? Is it NYS compliant? If it fits the 795 it should work on the 60 too right?

    I like that silver trigger. I wish my whole 60 was stainless but it's not worth buying a new gun when I have one that works just fine.

    Thanks egean. Yes the flash hider will work on the 60 as well. However an aditional notch at the 6 o'clock position may need to be to be cut out for the magazine tube like the notch at the top too slip past the front sight post. All the treads were removed and the inner bore radius was bored too fit the barrel end. Then i drilled and tapped a hole at the bottom to accept a metric hex key bolt. As far as the trigger and trigger guard you can order it from d.I.p (diverse innovative products) for your 60.

    Marlin 795 with a model 60 stock Project

    Perhaps my most rewarding project. I milled a model 60 stock for the 795. Goes very nicely with the 1862 John and Henry Dance .44 caliber Revolver. A fun day at the Range at 50 yards.:)
