    Replacement stock for 1895

    I am trying to find a replacement stock and fore end for my 1895 45/70 pistol grip. I hate the checkering and I want a thinner fore end. This is my "go to" gun and I carry it everyday on the ranch. It is either leaned up agaisnt the passenger seat or in the Jeep gun rack. Every time I glance over I think that damn checkering doesn't belong on an American icon.

    Thanks

    Dave

    howdy...i've got a pg stock with a decellerator pad that I bought for a project that I've chosen not to do. pm me if you're interested. I can snap pics too.
    No matter where I'm at I just have to find out what's over the next hill.

    maybe you could just sand out the checkering and refinish the stock . . .

    Replacement stock for 1895

    BWANADAVE,
    I have essentially done what NANOOK was talking about. I wanted a slimmer forend(Cowboy type) and recoil pad (Pachmahr Decelerator).
    I removed the checkering on the forend but preserved it on the pistol grip.
    The rifle fits perfectly;it is a bit lighter and looks great.
    The only downside was that I couldn't use my favorite game hammer for a few days(refinishing)

    Yes I have considered sanding down the fore end and will probably end up doing that. Unfortunately that can not be done with the butt stock since the checkering is deeper than the amount of excess wood. I have considered speaking to Marlin about purchasing an uncheckered butt stock in the white, however I have found them less than cooperative in regards to custom work in the past. I have found one source on the net for uncheckered butt stocks but their low end wood is about $120. For $20 more, they will plane the fore end down.

    Bwana, occasionally the stock you are looking for will show up on eBay. You might also check with Wild West Guns. Sometimes they have them for sale after converting customers' 1895s to synthetic stocks.
