    Arsenal stock repairs/additions.

    Thought I would post up some gun activity to maybe spur some conversation as it is so slow here.

    Arsenal stock repairs/additions. I have a couple of guns with these. An arsenal repaired stock is neat to me as it adds to it's history. Most are very well done and shows the craftsmanship and care of long gone gunsmiths and arsenal repair personnel. Some of the splices are amazing, bowties and such.

    Here is my IBM M1 Carbine arsenal repaired stock done long ago. It's done on the recoil pad nut section right behind the trigger. Spliced in patch of different wood with a brass pin all the way through. I like it.

    Post up any you might have. Very neat and interesting to me. What's your thoughts on this subject?

    I have never seen a US weapon with a pin repair. I have seen Enfield, Mosin and Nambu with repairs similar to that. I will have to look at my rifles again
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    This stock came with a Dutch armorer's tag. Might explain the pin.

    Lend lease or post war perhaps? That is a very European repair, aside from the cross grain patch, rarely see that.

    I did one on a beater K31, trying to make it look as Swiss as I could:



    I've not seen a beech stock where they bothered to repair like this however. From the condition of the beech K31's I don't think the users and arsenal guys loved them much.
    But I had the rifle, and had the scraps of beech. Bought some of the right kind of shellac for this, just cuz it was a fun project.

    I have one walnut K31 with a similar but smaller patch job. I'll try to remember to take a pic next time I'm at home.

    Yup, post war most likely. The Dutch armorer's tag is dated 4-65. Like you mentioned, probably was on a Lend Lease gun.


    Nice repair you did there, very neat! Looking forward to seeing your repaired K31 or any others you might have.

    My Schmidt Ruben 96/11 stock addition. These had a "pistol grip" added on to the straight stock of the 1896 as part of the upgrade to 96/11. Very well done. Don't know if they used dowels or something internally, but it is super solid.
