    She claims she liked the look of the wood stock better, but the feel and comfort of the new stock far outweigh the aesthetic shortcoming.

    I think it looks mean as hell for a marlin 60, and the PFI .22LR scope makes it crazy out to 200 yds.

    No its camo gun wrap. sort of like a semi sticky ace bandage. It only sticks to itself, not the weapon. I put it on there for grip and cushion.

    Sorry Josh, I like most of what you have done but this one, not so much. I will go along with Beth and Bob.
    But that scope is FINE.

    I'm still in the process of modding my Wifey's Marlin 60...
    [​IMG]

    Boyd's Thumbhole Stock stained pink & a BSA scope...
    DIP Trigger Guard & Adjustable Target Trigger...
    (have to remember to get the safety button, lol)

    [​IMG]

    Waiting on DIP to come out with a Pink charging handle...hehehe
    Hoping to find a good pink leather sling somewhere...might have to settle for pink web sling...

    And its eventually going to get Duracoated Pink...or I'll finally order a Stainless barrel & tube for it...

    For those wondering why there's a Recoil pad on a .22lr??
    My wife has had 4 shoulder surgeries...so even .22lr stings...but with the slip-on pad, she can enjoy any .22 or .223 we've got :)

    That's why we call it customizing!
    I got tired of looking for a stock I liked for this one so I customized one myself!
    Just a cheep scope I had around though, I'll be changing it. Oh and ditto on that scope JLA. I gotta look that up but probably outta my reach for the .22.
    I like thin crosshairs but can't find that on a budget scope.
