I just jailed a Marlin 795.  Which air soft conversion should I do next?
Keep in mind I have already done a FN2000 so the trigger linkage on the P90 would be pretty much the same (easier the second time).

My concern about the Tavor is being able to split the case, its just so much easier to work that way.

do an HFC L85.  i was curious how the plastic is on that one.   the problem with using 795 with the L85 is your 795 magazine will be sticking out like an eye sore.  maybe you can paint it black so it kinda blends in.  also im not sure how youre going to do the trigger linkage if you keep the 795 trigger housing intact.  that will also stick out

with my TAR21, i didnt split the stock in half.   i think its glued on to keep both halves intact.   also i used a Marlin 60 instead of a 795 because i didnt want to deal with the 795 magazine and bolt release.

you know how the P90 and FS2000 are installed since they have bolts on the side, the TAR21 does not have this. 

try it but im curious to see if my theory is right or wrong.

I got the 795 out of jail on Saturday morning and in the afternoon my $30 Well P90 came in the mail.  The plastic is very cheap compared the the G&G FN2000, but at 1/12th the price (new) that is to be expected.

I worked on it last night for a few hours and it is ready to bed. I am hoping my wife likes it better than the FN2000 because it will be less the 5lbs with the RDS.

The one problem I have is that the 795 has an 18" barrel and inside the P90 body it only comes to 25" OAL so I need to extend the length at least 1.5".  I really don't want to permanently attach a 10/22 flash hider to the barrel just in case I want to go back to the original stock and irons.

Ever heard of anyone making a 1-2" permanent buttpad extension for the P90 airsofts?

You can buy a slip on butt pad but you'll need to add a piece of wood under it for a couple reasons:

First is the butt pat will get you there, but just barely depending on how far back you mounted the 795.  I used a Mossberg 702 Plinkster (very similar to the 795) and it has an 18" barrel too.  The butt pad got me 'just' to 26" overall but I don't feel comfortable with that.  If someone measures wrong or reads it wrong... well, I wanted just enough so there wouldn't be any questions.

Secondly, the wood will give you something to screw into.  You need to secure the wood to the P90 but that's not too difficult. 

Personally I think the P90 needs that back butt pad to finish it off and give it a 'professional' look.   Here's my P90 Terminator



Good luck and you'll love your .22 P90! 
And the Well stock will hold up just fine, that's what I used too.

Good idea on the wood spacer.  I was looking at the rubber butt pad as well.
I want to eventually get the front rail system from the terminator package.

I think the Terminator rail system is a must in my opinion, at least aesthetically.  The P90 looks great if it has the original barrel, but since we can't have those (or at least not without an SBR ) whenever the barrel sticks WAY out of the end of any bullpup I think it makes it look odd. 

Plus it gives you a place to put a fore grip on.

Finished it.  The 795 seems to be made for this body.  All new parts including the 795.  I figure about $336 total.
