My objective in developing this project was to create a stripped down Marauder that has better ergos and is comfortable to use while making it easier to take out in the woods with. I also wanted to use the same trigger  rather than using a Prod trigger group/grip and a way to still attach accessories such as a bipod. Here is what I came up with. The retracting stock has multiple locking points so It can be adjusted on the fly for a variety of positions and adapt to different shooters' sizes. I shaved off about a pound of weight from the wood stock.

I like it. Looks like you shortened the air gauge as well?

Nice rifle made even better. I love your design and all the work that went into making this beauty look and work so well. I'm interested in doing something similar.

A+

I removed the extenstion and threaded the gauge into the same body.

I also like the all metal look.  I am not sure if I would like the forward vertical grip or if I would like a horizontal grip better.

That is the nice thing about a pic rail, anything can be quickly changed out. Thank you for the feedback.

Where did the retracting stock and mounts come from?

I like it too.  Everything you need and nothing you don't need.

Never really liked the looks or feel of the Marauder, but must say... I'd be proud to have that in my collection.  Well done, sir.   I really like what you've done. 

All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand.

I have one of the Marauders with the eastern European walnut bullpup conversions.  I just got in from shooting it.   The Marauder is one of those platforms that lends itself to modification.

Did you make the pistol grip or is that an available part?
