Normally speaking we dont make a gun to go into a stock.. we make a stock to fit a gun..

There isnt a "way" Its all custom tinkering and fabrication of parts.

Best thing I can tell you is get a cheap gun that you dont mind hacking up to fit a stock and go to town.

Good Luck

I would have to say after having a little experience with this that the auomag is by far the easiest marker to mount. The trigger job can be a little finicky but all-in-all it was the easiest out of the markers I have modded. The Ion is tough because you have to find a location to hide the electronics. If you wanted to use the ion for the mod, I would suggest using a synthetic stock. Have fun with the project and LMK if you have any questions. I may be able to help.
Wading through a mess, But I am moving forward...

I am actually picking up a 68 Classic this week (really cheap) that I want to drop into a stock when the time comes. I agree that just looking at the designs of how different markers work... either Sheridan based or Automags are going to be your best bet... pretty much just a tube with a valve and bolt. The rest is just feeding it and tripping the sear.
See my feedback thread here.. since 2007.
