ATI Marlin Fiberforce Stock

A Hearty, Happy, Healthy, Hello to all you Bloggers and Shooters

I think that we should make this month of October – “Stock Month” for my blogs as I have got a few stocks to talk about. One thing you can rely on with an ATI Stock is that you are getting a Quality Product that is Comfortable to Shoot with, Damm near Indestructible, Good Looking and Light Weight………………….Oh!!! and at a reasonable price as well!!! What a Bargain!!! If you are looking for a good little .22 “Plinker” something for the Kids or Grand Kids to learn proper gun handling skills on, then you cant go past the Ruger 10/22 Semi Auto Rifle (my 1st choice) or the Marlin Model 60 Semi Auto (Tube Mag) or the Model 75 (Detachable Mag) and the Model 990. (for my 2nd choice) Lets face it…………..Most kids LOVE a Semi Auto Rifle, even though it costs Dad a Sh*t load more in ammo, they just love the idea that they can do quick follow-up shots (usually emptying the mag in the process)…………….God Bless them all!!! Just to see the big smiles on their faces after blasting a Baked Bean can to shreds is always worth much more than the ammo used.

Ok, getting down to business now, the particular stock that we are going to discuss today is the ATI Marlin Fiberforce Stock ~ Y39/B, which (as luck would have it) will fit on the Marlin Model 60, the Model 75 and also the model 990………………………You Beaut!!! One of the most important things to like about the ATI Marlin Fiberforce Stocks is that they are lighter (weighs only 26 oz’s) than the wooden stocks and are more comfortable to hold. This is a big thing to a kid, (or anyone for that matter) especially if he has to “Lug” the thing around. The last thing you want to do if you are teaching a kid proper gun handling skills is to give him a Bloody Heavy piece of wood and metal thing to carry around, see how quickly he gets over wanting to learn all about guns then!!!

So for a start, we have a lighter Stock and in the tried & true Dragunov Style of stock that we know is a very comfortable and easy to line up stock, once again just great for the younger Kids (or even a Big Kid) These ATI Fiberforce Stocks are compatible with Iron Sights or Red Dot Sights or any Optical Sights. For NZ conditions and Law, this stock is a Legal “A Category” Stock so no special endorsements needed on your license to fit one of these to your Marlin Rifle. Another Bonus is that it is a very easy, drop in installation, and no special tools are needed to fit this stock to your Marlin.

The Package comes with a Ventilated Forend for good Heat Dissipation and a Top Handguard to stop you getting burnt fingers, a built-in Cheek Rest with a 3M “Soft Touch” Cheek Rest Pad for a smooth, no-bite, Cheek Weld, plus 2 x Sling Swivel Studs for your Quick Release Tactical Sling. The Stock is extremely scratch resistant having been made in the USA from DuPont, Extreme Temperature, Glass Reinforced Polymer which makes it pretty near Darn Indestructible. (Which is just wonderful for being “Kid Proofed”)

NB: The ATI Marlin Fiberforce Stock ~ Y39/B will not fit the Model 795 Bolt Action or any “Bull Barrel” Marlin without some minor modifications.

Now in my (Humble) opinion, the best (as they say) is yet to come!!! and what I mean by that is that you can have your Marlin in 3 different colours, – Tactical Black ~ Y27/B, Desert Tan ~ Y44/T and Destroyer Grey ~ Y43/G, that way each of the kids can have their own colour coordinated Marlin………………..No need for their rifles to get mixed up again………….You Little Beaut!!!

Happy Plinking…………………………………….The “Quartermaster”
