    Default Marauder Bullpup

    The first day I received my Marauder, I decided the plastic stock must go. It looks and feel cheap.

    I had various ideas but eventualy decided to go the Bullpup route.

    Started out with some scetches to get a feel for where we going. Then the wood, as i have never build a stock before I decided to do a practice run first on some supa-wood. If that is a success I would go for the wallnut.

    The inletting was not as difficult as I thought. I mounted a router as a spindle with some home made cutters and router bits, came out perfect.

    Then I cut out the bulk waste wood sections. Some shaping with a electric file and lots of hand sanding. Stock done.

    The trigger was made from 5mm flat bar, some cutting grinding and drilling, done. I moved the barrel band to the possition I want the trigger and attached the trigger with a direct linkage to the existing trigger. The trigger action feels pretty much the same as the original trigger, so I was happy with the trigger.

    Had to extend the pressure gauge to be flush with the new stock. The scope rail was machined from alluminium to slide and clamp onto the breech scope rail and cap screwed in front onto the barrel band.

    I primed the wood with wood primer and sprayed it with plascon bakkie liner. Had to thin the bakkie liner quite a bit to be able to spray with a normal spraygun. It gave a very nice smooth finish. Then just sealed it with woodoc 10.
    I laminate some aluminium and copper plates together with a piece of conveyer belt for the buttplate.

    That was it, easy as that. Total cost for the project: R 160 for the bakkie liner, R80 for the aluminium for the scope rail. The rest were all bits and pieces lying around my workshop.

    That was the practice run, so where do I get the walnut?

    I was interested in the mynah on my neighbours roof, I had to stretch a bit to see it. I supported the Marauder on my hand against my garage wall, I never realised my hand was in front of the barrel. The rest is history, just the blood on the floor keep on reminding me.

    It was eina, but not as eina as my ego.
