    Could someone with a SAM give me just a rough idea what it would take to adapt the Gen 2 Marauder stock to the SAM?  I believe the gauge is located in a slightly different place as well as the trigger?

    Don’t know if it’s worth the effort. Synthetic version of the SAM coming soon so I’d say they’ll be selling the stocks separate like everything else. I wondered the same thing when I got it and remember there’s a support rib in what would be the center of your new gauge location if you’re wanting synthetic. I can take them out of the stock later if you want to see to confirm. Gen 2 on top and SAM below

    That is a cool looking stock on that SAM.  You customized it yourself with a specialized woodworking process?

    Thank you very much tor the photos and the information.    Looks like the SAM has a gauge location much further from the trigger.  I already have a Boyd's gen 2 thumbhole stock and wanted to see if I could adapt it to the SAM once I buy it.  Waiting for the synthetic seems like a good option too, albeit not that exotic.

    I would guess the regulated Marauder Field and Target might work.

    Odoyle, is that because the regulator forces the gauge further away from the trigger compared to the non-regulator type?  Or because of the extended air tube?

    The manometers hole placement further forward that's all.

    My understanding is that the syn sam is eminent for initial release, but doubt the stocks will be available until sometime well after that.  From a post by Crosman product mgr, it sounds like the syn stock will be the shape of the standard mrod, but have the capability to be used on either.     I suspect all initial production will be going to syn sam, maybe a F&T syn, and option in the Crosman Custom Shop for any of the regulated versions.  

    A few people have already modded the syn stock to fit, and have not reported any problems.  I plan to do that to a syn stock I have.  I checked about a week ago, crosman had the stocks and they were $37 + shipping.  

    Corrected price.

    Odoyle is correct, the Mrod F&T (factory regulated) uses the same air tube and stock as the SAM. The custom shop had some nice hydro dipped camo stocks before Veloctiy took down the custom shop website. New web page being developed.

    Both, gauge placement closer to muzzle due to regulator placement between valve and gauge block and longer tube to accommodate same fill volume with regulator installed.

    I pulled the syn stock out of closet and compared to the SAM stock:

    SAM Wood Stock = 44oz

    Mrod Syn Stock = 35 oz

    The syn stock did not have the trigger guard mounted, so difference is probably 8-8.5 oz.  A half pound is still significant.  Different wood stocks have different densities, though.  Also low humidity now.  So your results may vary.  ;)

    Did some quick measurements.  Looks like 4 1/8" center to center from the stock lug.  About 1 3/4" ctc from gauge hole.  

    The new hole does fall on a rib.  I may scuff up the inside an lay down a layer of plastic binder epoxy.

    Appreciate the good information.  I guess another advantage of the synthetic is that it does not expand/contract with temperature like real wood.
