I was terrified it was going to be some cheesy ATI thing.

Well done!

im thinking about selling pre-gutted airsoft stocks. id buy them myself, pre-gut them and sell it or you can buy it, ship it to me, i gut it, ship it back, you drop in the .22 and bolt it back up.

at the moment im still doing research whether this is considered gunsmithing(requires FFL) or not even though its just gutting out the "airsoft stock for a firearm"

Awesome man, great work. Just out of curiosity, how is the accuracy with your iron-sighted rifles? Do you ever have problems with the airsoft sights not having enough adjustment to align with the actual rifle barrel?

As with all of the others you post, I am very impressed sir. You have a talent at making these. The Chey-Tac M200 is still my favorite, but if you keep making all of these others, that might change. Please keep making these and posting the photos, I really love seeing these..

Very cool.

But, that's to be expected by now.

Glad to see you're thinking about going public.

How tough was this conversion? The front sight and flash hider are probably beyond my abilities but it appears from these pics that the Marlin was a good fit for this stock.


It looks great!

difficulty was 3 out of 10. it was pretty easy. never done it before so it took a few hours to figure things out and what to cut. if i did it again, should take me less than 2 hours

the flash hider and front sight are one piece and just slides over the Marlin 60 muzzle. just had to grind the bottom part of the flash hider to allow the tube to slide out
