It's a 22, don't forget. The stock won't be subject to an awful lot of pounding. Fix the one you have and shoot it. New stock, new this, new that... they add up. The stock ought to be the least of ones problems.

Default Arrived today!

US m44 arrived today after a long drawn out sage with the wife on ordering it.

It arrived in good shape. Great shape for a project gun.

Missing the rear sight, not sure on the firing pin if it is missing. Ok stupid question.... How can I tell without firing it?

Trigger guard maybe cracked, I won't know more until I take it apart.

Pictures will follow. Overall Im happy.

Remove the bolt and flip it upside down and look at the bottom. The pin should run the length of the bolt and the trigger sear engages a notch in the pin itself that can be easily ID'd. If it is missing there will be a deeper channel running the length instead of the pin.

Or you can also take apart the bolt and check.

I can only hope that these will be as nice as the first two that I got.
They came today, 30 days, not as nice as the first two I got. Two parkerized and one blued. No rear sights or safe/fire tabs, two missing trigger guards, one with a chewed up stock, one with no buttplate, one with a bad bolt and no trigger spring. No photos this time as I immediately parted them out. I have enough parts to build two functioning rifles which is all I needed and why I ordered three. Overall a good deal, but not as nice as the first two that I got that only needed rear sight apertures and safe/fire tabs.
I had included a sticky asking for one drilled and tapped, but no such luck.

I sent my order in the beginning of April.
DBU sent on 04-05-10
Processed on 04-23-10
shipped 04-29-10
serial # 164426
Received 04-30-10

This is my second one and a Big change from the first, But for the price I love it.
This one had been painted and the stock is a little rough and it was missing some small items: Buttplate (any idea who may have one in stock??) Front Swivel and Screw (I am thinking that I may try my hand at Glass Bedding this with the kit from Brownells) and the Busted Trigger Guard.
With the Scope mount that Havlin's Sell will it mount using the Rear Sight Screw holes?
It had a Firing Pin (A Plus my first one had a bad one) the Bore looks nice and the Crown just has some paint chips missing to me it looks good.
I plan on Stripping the Barrel down with some Glass Bead and using some Aluma-Hyde Dark Park finish, The Stock will get the full treatment of a Gentle Stripping and a few coats of pure Tung oil.

The Havlin mount requires that the rifle be drilled and tapped for a scope mount, it will not work with just the normal two holes where the sight goes.

There is a way to mount a scope just using the two existing holes. See here.
