Default Looking for an Original M44 US Stock

Hi Everyone,

I Recently picked up a M44 US property marked rifle and upon close inspection the stock had a crack in the rear on the non-bolt side near the back going back to the safety switch. I can perform an Arsenal repair with a brass pin, but I really want to replace the stock.

I am keeping an eye out in the normal places like eBay, forum classified etc. but thought someone on this subforum may have a nice Stock or a good lead on an orginal M44 stock in great shape?

If you have something (please send me a PM) or know of a source please let me know.

Thanks, M1Army

Doesn't do you much good unless you know someone attending, but there was a nice one at the Show of Shows yesterday. I believe $40 with the trigger guard.

Your stock is probably repairable. There are a number of different glues and techniques that can be used.

I would generally open the crack very slightly using a clamp and socket and then inject clear Gorilla Glue into the crack. When filled, I clamp the crack down tight so that the glue cannot expand and open it.

Often hard to even see the repair and it will be stronger than the wood itself.

Not only that, but a 22 doesn't have a whole lot of recoil... the repair will last a looonng time. Just be sure you get it done well (invisible). Otherwise, I see them on eBay pretty regular. There are several oddball dealers that carry them, too.

Thanks for the information I have found an original replacement.

I will post up pictures once I complete the refinish and other small things I plan to do with the barreled receiver.
