DIP makes the 3/8" accessory rail to Pic rail mount
http://www.diproductsinc.com/Products.aspx?CAT=3603

I've got quite a few of their items so far...best Marlin supplier I've found for New Products!!

But due to the issues with my 795, I ended up filing the grooved rail so that the Pic Rail would fit...
took a triangle file with tape on one side and went at it until it was .43" all the way on both sides.
This is a problem with 2005-2011 Marlin 60 and 795's...random in appearance,
but often enough that it needs to be checked on every one with 2005-2011 date codes.

Ended up putting that rail on my Marlin 989-M2, as it just looked more appropriate & Tacti-Kewl
the 795 is wearing Weaver see-thru rings at this time...

Hey Shrek im having a hell of a hard time with this project. I got it all back together but my problem is once I screw the trigger assembly back in the action won't close. I compared the stock to the original and the only real difference i can see is that the wood stock has raised edges for the action assembly to sit on. I'm thinking when I screw the trigger on it compresses too much and wont allow it to cycle properly. Any ideas? the only think I can think to do is jb weld some groves for the action to sit on, but I don't want to do that unless its my only option. This stock is for a 70 not a 60. does that make a difference other than for the mag tube and lsho lever?

Take some time and really examine the situation. It could just be a matter of shortening a screw. As far as the jb weld I wouldn't expect that to last you may want to explore bedding options a bit.

On the original 70, the 60 t/g was used, along with the secondary piece for the magwell opening.

Although, I'm starting to wonder if your stock got bubba'd, because there should be a ledge there to sit the action on.

Just my luck it probably did. I think I'm going to fab some pieces of aluminum and attach them to the inside. I did some prefitting of some 1/8th inch aluminum down the edges and think it should work quite well. Cut to length, file to fit, paint to match!

Don't forget to take pics...might help some other poor soul along the way

For anyone who is following I finished it up. I created a base for the action using a piece of 1/8 inch aluminum about 1 inch by 3/4 inch. I attached it to the inside right side (action side) of the stock which allowed the action to sit on. I tried putting a length down the left side but it pushed the action too far right and created cycling problems. She is all ready to go and waiting to be test ran this weekend. Big thanks to Shrek for all his help and knowledge.

To put a Marlin 60 into the same stock, you must find a way to cover the mag-well opening and drill a hole in the forearm for the mag tube...that's it.
(cover can be cut from a hood from a plastic model car kit...)

The hard part is actually FINDING one...fleabay & other auction sites have to be checked often...


That being said, I'm working on the problem...by saving up enough to purchase a mold for a new Marlin 795/60 tactical folder of my own design.
Just getting the Biz License & Copyrights & Trademarks filed has been a bizatchie...lol
Bear in mind, the cost of such a mold runs around $15K, so until the Gov't Grants comes in...it ain't happening anytime soon.
I've got a deal struck with a local plastics company to produce it as soon as I get a mold....
Meanwhile...we wait

Other options include the Muzzlelite Bullpup stock (http://www.bullpupgunstocks.com/), they have a specific M-60 version...


and the Well P-90 airsoft stock...which is a bargain at around $30
(ignore the electric tape on the buttstock, its there to hold until the glue sets...LOL)
iw as just wondering how you got the 60 into that p90 airsoft?
