    Very nice. I was looking into doing this to my 10/22. Thanks for the walk through.

    i have used this mod for several yrs, works great.

    if u have a thin guard take a small piece of aluminum or steel and file it to fit behind the trigger and use a bit of JB WELD to hold it in place. after it dries it can be sanded or filed to clean up and a bit of black paint will hide it. or if u wish to get picky and want it to match your blueing a bit of glossy dark blue paint and add black to it till u get the right shade or at least close to it and almost custom.

    Nice Mod - I've seen it used before on a pocket pistol.

    A quicker and easier solution is to cut a pencil eraser to the needed length and glue it to the inside of the trigger guard (or to the back of the trigger), then blacken it with a sharpie.

    OverDraught is right on with the eraser. I have it on a couple of my pistols and haven't had any problems. You cut the eraser to what length you think it should be then glue it on and the fine tune it with a small file or a finger nail sanding board. My wife doesn't even know how good her sanding board worked. If you don't like it you can just pop it off and clean off the glue and no harm done.

    can you also install a set screw on the top of the trigger to reduce creep?

    Yep. If you look at a DIP Marlin trigger/guard combo set, they do both...
    you can also just buy an adjustable trigger from DIP and install it easily.

    Here's a shot of my Wifey's pink DIP guard before installing all the parts.

    MCARBO also has a nifty Marlin trigger setup...found at the RFC website.
