  1. Glue removal from stock

    Hello, I just purchased a 1953 model 94 and the previous owner had a cheek pad glued to the stock. I removed the pad but I'm trying to figure out how to remove the ancient glue without ruining the original finish. So far I've tried to soften it with WD40 and mineral spirits without and luck...

  3. Turn NEW bolt rifle into OLD military style rifle

    Hi all, I am new to his forum. I am wondering about the feasibility of turning a newer rifle like a Ruger M77 (Hawkeye, GSR, etc.) into a Kar98 or Yugo M48 lookalike. I really love the look and feel of old Mausers, but 8mm is drying up and I am not a reloader. Additionally, I am not so...

  7. Mossberg 146B stock needed

    I acquired a Mossberg 146b in a load of misc. junk at an auction a while back. The stock has been butchered... someone cut the cheekpiece way back. The gun seems accurate but of course the balance sucks with no decent way to hold it. I am trying to find a new stock for this. Any suggestions as...
