Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Installing Recoil plates in a coachwood stock

#1 Post by 72 usmc » Thu Jun 08, 2017 8:22 pm

The original author is e551st and this post is INSTALLING RECOIL PLATES IN A COACHWOOD STOCK.
This is for a Lithgow SMLE. Most of these are import marked JJCO NY NY 303 for the Jovino Company. These like new rifles may have been assembled in the U.S. and may lack the recoil plates. Always check to see if the coachwood stock has its plates.
No plates on this rifle:

This lower rifle has the copper plates:

After some searching I found a wayback link that still has all the pics in this fantastic post. This is from 3 April 2016. Others seem to be missing photos. So if you need it, print it out.

Click on the link below to see all the photos.

Thanks, Steve

Ceratopetalum apetalum, the coachwood, scented satinwood or tarwood, is a medium-sized hardwood tree, straight-growing with smooth, fragrant, greyish bark. It is native to eastern Australia in the central and northern coastal rainforests of New South Wales and southern Queensland, where is often found on poorer quality soils in gullies and creeks and often occurs in almost pure stands. C. apetalum is one of 8 species of Ceratopetalum occurring in eastern Australia, New Guinea, New Britain and various islands in the same region.
Coachwood was used by Lithgow when building the No1 MkIII rifles

Yes, I wish they would make this a sticky as well as a few others I redid, it was one of the old greats that I put on the cloud so it does not lose the pictures. This link remains intact:
