Hello to all experts. I came into possession a year or two ago of a beautiful 1917 rifle that had turned into a sporter. It was in need of a lot of love. After loving it up it turned into a tack driver.
My problem, the first wood stock split back at the bolt extractor. My brother replaced it with a synthetic stock. It split again in the same location.
--Has anyone else had this issue, and do you have recommendations?
(We are going under the assumption of worn tabs allowing the bolt arm to travel far enough back to strike the stock and set up a sympathetic crack. Dremeling the stock for a greater indent is our current concept.)
My problem with this is that no play is felt on the bolt arm.
--Second question is : Does anyone know if the ENFIELD NO4 MK1 MK2 MK5 303 MONTE CARLO RIFLE GUN STOCK will fit the US M-1917 30 06?
