    Default Dupage M1 Garand Stocks

    Do the unfinished Dupage M1 Garand Stocks have the same contour as the ones offered by the CMP? I know that there is an "association" with Boyds' on these stocks, but I'm sure as heck not going to buy one of the ones sold by Boyds' with their "scant" pistol grips. I'll refinish firewood before buying one from Boyds'. As far as I know, but I need confirmation, that the unfinished ones by Dupage should have the same full pistol grip as do the ones sold by the CMP.

    Thanks,

    Danny

    Yes, they have the same contour as the ones sold by CMP.

    They probably make the CMP ones as well.

    Boyds makes both of them to Dupage dimensions.

    Best I can tell from what's showing up on tables at gun shows, it's Yes and No as DP thins out older Boyd's inventory. To be closer to USGI spec and the snugger fit, I think I'd order direct from CMP.

    I purchased a set of "finished" buttstock and handguards from Dupage a few months back. I was EXTREMELY pleased with how tight the stock fit. The rifle's owner did not want the CMP cartouche on it, so I ordered the set from Dupage. Yes, Dupage does supply the Garand stock sets to CMP.

    Gus and anybody interested, an unfinished Garand stock set WITHOUT a CMP cartouche is $118.95 on CMP's web site. Orest says it's as close to "drop-in" as there is, none of them being 100% drop-in. I assume it's the same DP stock CMP stamps with its cartouche when it sells a newly-stocked rifle.

    I have obtained several unfinished Garand stock sets from Dupage. I was pleased with the contours and dimensions. The wood, (walnut and birch) was easy on the eyes and took finish well. Regards, Clark

    Good info, I didn't know that. Thank you.

    I just restocked my M1, it came dressed in a CMP "pumpkin" stock.
    I purchased a Dupage black walnut stock for it and finished it with 0000 wool and pure Tung oil.
    The action was a drop in, no wood removal was required at all.
    Tilt test, etc were passed with flying colors, not bad for a $109.95 stock.
    Here are a couple of pictures of the finished rifle.
