I'm trying to find a way to adapt a shortened AR 15 buffer tube to this rifle. My intention is to keep the rifle as compact as it is, with the added value of an expandable stock.

The exotic wood used by Cheapo, sorry Chiappa, is terribly soft and very fragile. Difficult to work with, if not impossible.

The way the stock is connected to the action gives quite a challenge to work on.

Anyway, the purpose of this gun is to be shot from the hip or pistol-style...

I'll be interested if you can update us with your progress.
I want to make it nice to look at, easy to use, well fitting. Thus why I ask for input such as yours.
