    For it's intended use, I wouldn't have it any other way.

    HOWEVER, I do love the look and feel of a leather butt cuff on a classic lever action. It just wasn't fitting for this setup.

    Check out Hoptic USA, they have some awesome quivers for tons of calibers!
    Thanks 84
    The humidity is GA is a big issue as well...I will check Hoptic out.

    Nice build. I thought about doing something similar but as a SBR but figured I already have enough of those.

    Blessed are the flexible for they shall not be bent out of shape.

    Looks great! I wish there was someone making a skelentized stock for Marlins to create a "tactical" rifle. Ruger made a skelontized stock that I liked. Great job, thanks for sharing.
