    Hmm. How heavy is it?

    Not sure, I'll weigh it when mine gets here. I'm waiting for the next round of walnut thumbholes again.

    Hmm. Might just stick with the replacement stock I got - the plastic stock they made for the synthetic version is light. And I like it that way. :p

    Woohoo! Goodies in the mail! Just got to find time to smooth and finish it.

    Looks like it'd be great with a dark stain.

    Is it much more comfortable than the standard stock? I have to admit that I find the standard version a tad short for my taste...

    It is quite a bit more comfortable than the original. I'm going to weigh them at work to see the difference but they feel really close.

    You took a wood stock off it, or plastic? The plastic weighs practically nothing.

    I took off a wood stock. I'm not sold on the plastic on the M60, I feel the character of the rifle leans more towards wood. Do they make a normal looking plastic stock? All I have ever seen are those god-awful tacti-cool stocks.

    Yep, synthetic stocks are available right from Marlin! They're very light, which took a bit of getting used to at first.

    Marlin Model 60SN

    I can't remember where I got my stock, it's been a few years. It was a new factory replacement, though. I think I tossed my wood stock because it was beat to crap (hey, I bought the rifle for $10).
