I saw that article as well. I also could never find any info on how he added the small missing piece of wood and blended it

I just wanted a serviceable M1A1 stock and ended up using a Italian copy. I reworked the wood and installed GI hardware for the pivot mechanism, top plate, etc. It worked out well and probably cost about $350. The hardware came from Northridge International several years ago. I also replaced the hand guard with GI. The hardware that comes with the Italian stocks can be worked over to improve lock up, but the steel is soft and wears easily.

I mentioned I would post pictures of my Inland reproduction stock when I got through with it. Well it’s close so here are some pics. I still need to blacken the rivits and other small things. All cartouche marks came on it from Inland. I stripped the stock, recut the left side inlet angles, restained it with the ussR stain sold on the forums. Then BLO. Still lots of small things to know it’s repro. On purpose.

Default milling 'un-serviceable' USGI woodwork...

From time to time; I see 'broken' USGI stocks on ebay. Usually means damage from butt to fore-end, although I think I remember more than a few that seemed to have damage only around the butt-end / slingwell area.

For irreparable damage, might such be a good candidate for some mill-work, to take down to M1a1 cut?

Or has someone already done this?

I have been wondering that myself. It looks like you could mill off a buttstock and use the rest. I have the tools and have been tempting myself to try it.

I think the M1A1 is more squared off than a regular stock. The other area that may cause a problem is the recoil plate. Are they not mounted differently between the two stocks? I hope I’m wrong in both counts.

Has anyone had experience with the Auto-Ordnance reproduction stocks?
