Very nice! I’m getting ready to do the same thing to the same rifle, anything I should know?

Great looking stock—very few Marlins ever get that kind of TLC.

You did an absolutely beautiful job on this. That is one of the prettiest of all woods. That stock and forearm are worth more than the rifle!

Great job on your gunstock. The grain looks fantastic as well as the good job you did fitting the wood to the metal. I don’t have any leopard wood, but I do have a nice sycamore log that I’m going to quartersaw soon. I can’t wait to see what it looks like inside.

WOW, a perfect replica. If it were walnut, I wouldn’t believe it was a new one.

thanks everyone ,,the only advice i could give to hybridwoodwork is to just take your time and don’t get in a hurry,, i routed out the pockets were the receiver fits and used a pattern bit to follow straight edges
