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.

Different stock length on 91/30s.

Different stock length on 91/30s.

#1 Post by 8thIDGrunt » Wed Jan 03, 2018 12:46 pm

In cleaning some of my rifles last evening I (finally) noticed that the stock and handguard on one of my 91/30s is about one inch shorter than another right below it. Is this a common thing and what could be the reason? Fixing a damaged stock during re-arsenal is my guess but I just don't know.

I also have one that is slightly shorter, by about 1/2 inch, mine is a 1942 Izhevsk M91/30 built on a 1941 reciever I beleive.

From what I can tell the buttstock is slightly shorter making all the hardware (Barrel bands, barrel band springs, nose cap, sling escutcheons) sit about 1/2 inch lower compared to the others.

The two stocks are different in other ways, too. Like where the sling slots are. I will have to post a picture, maybe tomorrow.

I figured the front of the stock got damaged so they just repaired it by cutting it off, but the butt stock being shortened too? Quite strange and now it has my curious about my own.
