Hi Gents - Our first set of Marlin "synthetic" all weather stocks is finally available. The forearm works on any centerfire model and we're starting off with a pistol grip butt stock (straight stock still needs to be designed).

These robust, glass-filled polymer stocks blend traditional lines with modern functionality, enhancing the look, feel, utility and durability of Marlin’s classic hunting rifles.

Details below and photos.

Well, im up in the arctic, wont be home for another month, but had the stock set ordered to my parents house, and apparently it has arrived already. That was sure fast. Still waiting on word from my local gun shop that my 1895 dark is in.

Any plans on offering a set that is more traditional without the m-lok and side sling points on the stock? Something that looks like the factory wood, just made from polymer.

Hi Gunner76 - At this time no we do not but that might change in the future. For now, we're were trying to offer something that could be more functional while also keeping the traditional lines vs. the AR-15 style metal handguards. As sales pickup and we see enough interest in nylon stocks, we'll be able to determine next steps for additional stocks - including a straight grip butt stock. These designs are pretty sophisticated as are the up front costs so we need to take it slow.

What are the holes bored into the side of the stock for?

How much fitting is required to install a set?

I like the idea of the weight savings on a user rifle.

I believe the holes are to attach a sling mount.

That's understandable. Your forearm looks a lot better than the metal ones that are offered for the leverguns.

The side holes are for flush cups for slings. There is also a bottom hole if you prefer a sling stud. The stocks take a few minutes to install with usually no fitting.

I assume these are not legal for SASS?

Will the butt stock fit on an 1894 with an existing straight grip stock?
Right now we only have a pistol grip stock. The only way to use it on a straight grip model would be to switch out the straight grip trigger guard to a pistol grip one (buy a used one from Numrich) and replace the lever to a pistol grip lever. Basically a conversion. We do plan at some point to have a straight grip version just not sure on the timing.

I would doubt they would approve of nylon stocks. They did approve our trigger kit, flyweight loading gate and 1894 extractor.

Do you have any plans to offer youth-length stocks? I tend to prefer around a 12" LOP and would prefer to not have to cut down a brand-new stock if I could avoid it.

Not at this time but maybe next year. We're taking this one step at a time.
