95% DONE!

At the moment its fitted perfectly with no movement of the action/barrel of the Marlin 60.
I bought some Kydex and will be cutting out shapes to cover up the gap around the ejection port.
Used a 10/22 flash hider. I need to dremel off part of the bottom part so the tube can freely slide in and out
I'm not using the Marlin 60 trigger housing.
M4 magazine is fake. I'll be using some fake PMAGs with the fake bullets showing through the window.

All is left is the trigger linkage using a 1/8 steel tubular rod. This is the hardest part.
I'll be hooking it up to the action of the Marlin 60.

That is a very interesting set-up.

I like it better without the AR mag, though. Of course, the mag might be useful to hold extra ammo or maybe even as a quicker way to reload the tube mag.

Why would you rape a model 60?

Ok I just noticed each bullpup stock was different. I thought it was all the same thing. What are you going to do with all those wood stocks?

See I'm the opposite I like wood I don't really like the synthetic stock look. I mostly buy military surplus(what's left) so I like wood. I recently bought a marlin 795 and it has a synthetic stock. Its kinda growing on me but I think ill replace it at some point.

yes! finished my first bullpup conversion! i literally spent like 7-8 hours just on the trigger linkage. this one was tough because the TAR21 doesnt split in half. a bunch of trial, error and frustration but i finally got it done.

ill be doing a test fire this week to see how it holds up.

its also heavy even though the stock is made of polymer plastic.

im working on the L85 next.
