I’m back

Post by JAG2955 »

I haven’t been on this site since the latest migration, so I got to recreate my account.

I just bought my first C&R rifle in about 4 years, a M1917 that needs some wood, so I’m off to do some research!

Welcome back
I did a rescue myself of a Remington m1917..
The stock was chopped, but the price was right.
I wanted a shooter so I went with new wood from Numrich. Also hot the new made hand guards and all the metal from them.
The stock is great, but you will need to drill a few holes.
Namely for the butt plate, rear sling swivel, and where the screw that holds the goes through
Only part they don't have is the pin that holds the middle band in place.
But a piece of brass or steel rod cut to length will do.
About the only part that gave me trouble was installing the recoil bolt as I didn't have any bits that fit.
I was told you can use the M1 combo tool, the one with the chamber brush, but the slots were too narrow on the new made parts.

Thanks Charles. Does the Classified section still exist here, and I just can’t see it yet?

Aha. I seem to remember it being something like that before, too.

I even recall when SurplusRifle almost went under the first time. I bought the CDs with all the info on them.

Now to find a device with a CD-ROM...
