Shortened a stock

First time cutting a stock....

I have an extra model 60 stock and figured it could be shortened to fit my 11 year old. I cut 1.25" off it and refit the butt plate. I want to use it on a Model 70HC, so box magazine fed. I was going to use the model 60 trigger guard and the magazine plate, but while I was removing wood for the magazine channel, the section that would hold the front of the trigger cracked, so I had to remove it all and use the one piece DIP assembly. I added a T nut to hold a front slug swivel. Not a bad little effort on a Saturday morning.

Thank you!

The sights are Tech Sights. Completely awesome. Made for all kinds of guns, but specifically the Marlin 60/795. They are the classic GI type peep site / front post. Rear sight is click adjustable for windage and elevation. Front sight is fixed. A screwdriver is all that is needed for installation, as long as the gun you are putting them on has the screwed on ramp type front. The rear installs on the dovetail groove on the top of the receiver.
