Ramline M70 Lockarm Stock folding mod

Ok, I finally got the parts in...and it was a VERY fast job.
First ya needa Ramline M70 Lockarm stock from Numrich for $15.
This also fits the 795 if you drill a hole for the LSHO lever.
http://www.gunpartscorp.com/catalog/...50A&catid=4066


Then you needa Advanced Technology SKS Retrofit kit for $7
http://www.centerfiresystems.com/retsks02.aspx


First you drill (5/16"bit) a centerpunch hole thru the center of the original stop and once the two pieces split, you push them out & then remove the lockarm, then remove the fixed cam with the blade.


Fold the lockarm across the stock and place the cam inside the hole with the spring on the bottom.


Stick the pin thru the top hole and leave about 3/8" above the stock...then tighten setscrew slightly and Check the lock/unlock function. Adjust if needed.


Tighten screw with a 5/64" allen wrench. Test several times & make sure it's right where you want it.


Slap in your 795/70/995/989/989m2/etc barrelled action and it's a done deal

There is a little play once you are done, but it's really not any worse than the wiggle it already had.
However, I think building up the back wall will resolve the stock slop...I'm considering epoxy or some sort of plastic filler.
Heck, even a little moleskin might do the trick

Thanks for the step by step Big Shrek! Suprisingly easy and hard to beat a folding stock for $25! It's nice to have a rifle you can customize without spending hundreds of dollars! (Yes, I mean you 10/22)

Shrek, I solved the stock wobble problem on my ATI folder buy using a small piece of Velcro between the two halves of the stock.
I used a small piece of the felt 1/2 [ not the plastic loop 1/2 ] of self adhesive Velcro squares. I opened the folder and stuck it on the inside of the fixed 1/2 of the stock.

Question for Big Shrek or anyone else who has this stock, What's the length of pull on this stock compared to the original synthetic stock? The way the receiver sits forward in it makes it look like it might be longer, but it's hard to tell for sure. Thanks!

70p/70pss

I ran across someone altering this stock to fit either his 70P, or 70PSS, a while ago. I thought it was a great idea given that I really like the Papoose, but I don't like the idea of having almost no room for my support hand. Have any of you seen what I am referring to, or perhaps, is it not that uncommon? I just did a quick search to see if I could find it, and include it in this post, but I didn't come up with anything.

Found an image of it

And the forum where I found the image HERE

The way this was done won't give much additional room for your hand, but you could either leave more of the stock there and route out the inside to create a pocket for the nut, or you could simple attach a forward pistol grip right in fron of the mag well. That would look pretty crazy!

Thanks! I am pretty certain the one I saw a bit ago had maintained the full length, and the guy just made room for the nut.

I definitely like the idea. I wonder if you could get that into a tennis racket case.

I had to share pics from another member on another site

Jdub229r did a Heck of a Job on his

Quote:
I finally finished my 795. I was waiting on the conversion kit. Put a paint job on the main part of the stock for a nice contrast. Got a UTG dove tail to Picatinny riser & mounted my Nikon 3-9x40 to test her out. 1-1/2" to 2" groups w/ Fed 550pack 36g HP @ 100-yard - Needs more breaking in & some trigger work.




I honestly hadn't thought of painting the plastic stock, but it definitely looks GREAT!!

Gives me a few ideas for upgrade later down the road on mine

Great, just when I thought I'd figure out what I wanted to do with mine I see another option I like. Any body know if Rimfire tech's aftermarket trigger guard will work with that one?

Can anyone post a pic of the are where they removed material for the LSHO on the 795? I'd love to see it before I do it. Also, love the paint job. The 2 tone look does alot for that stock!
