Should be done this weekend. Will post pics later on

Just need to create an extended shoe trigger since the Marlin 60 trigger sits high and inside the pistol grip
Install the handle bar
Add a barrel shroud
Add a flash hider and front iron sight
Add top rail
Respray everything flat black

Test fire will be in two weeks.

It's amazing how you are able to do all of this. BTW what's an extended shoe string? I saw that on one of your other posts and tried to google it but no luck.

its a extended shoe trigger.

its like another fabricate trigger that slips over the Marlin 60 trigger. i have to bring it out forward and down to make this build functional.

the Marlin 60 and 795 trigger housing always sits high in most of my builds. At the moment I'm using plastic Kydex and heat forming it to make the shoe trigger and then drilling it into the Marlin 60 trigger.

im still thinking of other ways on how to create this. if i had a milling machine, it would be a lot easier.
