.22LR Magpul FPG using a Marlin 60

Latest stock purchase that should come next week. Magpul FPG (Folding Pocket Gun)

Made of full polymer.

Will be using a .22LR tube fed Marlin 60 for this conversion.
Also try a AR15 CASV quad rail on it to help cover up the barrel.
Fake suppressor using PVC piping

Will post pics and video once im done with the fitment.

yea the barrel is 22" long

overall length will likely be over 32" long with the stock pinned to be non foldable

its good to go.

95% done. finished fitting it. now i have to figure out how to close it and make it secure.

it wont fold anymore. stock is fixed

41" OAL
22" barrel length

things to do:
1) the trigger guard is too short so i have to create an extension or just create a new one
2) it doesnt close all the way so i need to figure out how to close the upper part of the FMG9 to the lower part. probably will create a bracket and screw it on 3 sides
3) add Devcon steel putty on both sides of the fake can to keep it snug around the Marlin 60 barrel/tube
4) add MBUS sights
5) use a smaller EOTECH red dot clone

Ah, non-foldable. Now it makes sense.

I remember that stock when the prototype made it's rounds. Can't believe they actually brought it to market.

You're project is still plenty cool for sure, I was just hoping to have a chance to get my hands on a pocket sized folding carbine for a few seconds there.
