So I finished cutting my marlin barrel down to 16.5". I threaded it with 1/2-28 threads, so to be able to interchange with any and all AR comp. and flash hiders. I also went with an 11 degree crowning.

Next step is to mill the factory scope rails on the receiver off and mount a weaver rail on top. I have already done this on another one of my marlins and it turn out really nice. Once this is done I will be able to attach my detachable AR carry handle and mount a flip up AR front sight on the rail(barrel clap style) at the front of the stock. I'll post more pics when I'm finished.

The threads need to be cleaned, those aren't burrs.

I forgot to mention. After I finished I measured the OAL with nothing threaded on and it came out to 26 1/2" with the grip sticking out the back.:eek: Close one. Well I would have had to design a new can that would sick out a bit. I'm guessing the stock was designed this way to fit a 16" barrel.

I found some pics of my other marlin with the 22" barrel. Huge difference! Also a good photo of the milled receiver top with the weaver rail.

Those Marlins look awesome. I'm impressed with the craftsmanship also.

Thank for the positive comments guys. I thought about getting a 10/22, but you have to put like $200-$300 into it just to get the accuracy you get from a marlin right out of the box.
