Full Length Polymer Stock

I have a Mosin Nagant 91/30 and love it. I have looked around for a replacement stock that I could just swap out and still have the option of putting the original stock back on, as to not degrade the history or value of the rifle. I have seen lots of sporter stocks that look like modern hunting rifles but I have not yet run across a full length, or "Military style" stock that goes up all the way to the muzzle like the original wooden stocks that are on most mil-surp rifles. Are there any polymer stocks like this that go all the way to the muzzle and look like the original stock or a Mannlicher style stock?

I have never seen such a beast and I honestly don't really see the point. If you like the full-length stock, why not just keep the wood?

If you want a polymer stock, say for lighter weight or weather resistance, then you can certainly drop a 91/30 into a sporter-style synthetic stock, add a scope and mount and a downturned-handle bolt. The barrel looks a bit long, but that's because it is long. ;-)

For example (not mine, just Google)...

Hmmm, I guess I'm the only one who thinks that would be cool. I like the durability of polymer and not having to worry about scratches or damaging the original wood stock with historical value to it. I know theres not much practicality in a full length stock over a modern "Hunting" style stock but I just think it looks really cool.

You're not the only one. A full length synthetic stock would look much better than the short synthetic stocks in my opinion. I love the original wood stock but with a full length synthetic you would have the original style and more durability. Sadly, I don't think one has ever been made.

A full-length synthetic stock would weigh a ton...The ATI stock I used for my sporter project is much, much heavier than the original wood. Perhaps carbon fiber would be lighter, but a custom-made $$$$$$ stock would be pushing it, even for me.

I wasn't thinking custom, I was just hoping that someone already made one and I just hadn't yet stumbled upon it.

My bro bought me the ATI synth stock for my Mosin. I think it weighs about the same. It has a rubber recoil pad, which is a lot better than the steel buttplate. My biggest complaint is that the stock peels away (just a bit, in front) from the barrel after a shot or two. The ATI stock uses the factory holes (1 in top under backside of bolt, other is bottom forward of magazine). Its only 2 points and they are not spaced out very well. If it had a forward barrel band the problem would be fixed. I've heard of glues you can use to seat it permanantly, but that didnt seem right to me. I like the synth stock, I could spray it up camo, and go back to OEM whenever I feel like it. Still havent felt like it though.

This stock does NOT fully cover the barrel. It looks like the one in post #2
