A bit of history on this poor rifle - the barrel and stock were chopped before I got it, and it was left out on a deerstand for a year or so, whereupon a gent found it and sold it to me as is.

I cleaned up the rust, re-blued it, worked over the wood as best I could, etc. The rifle is rather... sad-looking.


Does anyone have a lead for a decent (or even not so great) stock? It's a round receiver rifle, since that matters too. The cheapest I've seen the wood stocks so far is $40 or so, plus S&H, which is more than I paid for the rifle!


Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

That will probably be the cheapest unless you find somebody selling a beat up stock on ebay. In that case, you may be replacing bad with badder:D

So where are the pics?

I have seen very nice stocks on EBAY for about $20.00.

Tom-
Check out Reich Trade, if you don't see any on eBay. He carries a lot of parts and accy's and usually has fair pricing.

You'll pay about $30-$40.
