Thread: Broken stock

  1. #1

    Broken stock

    Just returned from atrip to poland with myrifle in two piecesi shouldered the gun and the top swivel gave way, the rifle swung round muzzle hit the ground snapping the stock clean through the pistol grip.

    Rifle is a mannlicher clasic half stock,gun is insured so should be no probs...

    Does anybody know if a synthetic stock is available for this model????

    Sorry to hear about it Nell. Get in touch with these people they'll sort it for you. They did my CZ stock. It looks as if it never happened.

    George's repair above is very impressive. Cromarty Gunsmiths in Cromarty are worth giving a call (01381 600 536) too. They replaced the stock on a .308 for me and the new stock was better than the original.

    The downside is the barrels or actions tend to snap with a McMillan

    Must have some pretty crappy barrels and actions then . I'll take wood over plastic any day of the week . The thought does cross my mind as to how the CZ stock was broken?

    Removed the action for a bit of maintenance in the garage and the stock slipped from my hands from a hight of about 3 foot and split clean in two and it was only from waist height admittedly on to a concrete floor.

    Prohunter's stock should fit. There was one on Guntrader for 80 or something around. Might still be there.
