You can transform the Mutant into a carbine by getting a different woodstock made however I wouldn’t mess with relocating the cocking lever. It works so seamlessly now, why mess with it? The rail/barrel band/trigger assembly can be relocated and slide more towards the rear if you need to adjust the length of pull. All you need to do is trim the metal rod for the trigger linkage. I don’t think moving the trigger assembly towards the rear should have much ill effect on accuracy. The barrel would still be clamped in two locations and still have a breech set screw. It would be interesting to see how this turns out but I still wouldn’t mess with the cocking lever.
