The stock is the easy part of the conversion. PG stock arer availible from a number of places, I believe even marlin.AINT NO FISH said:Any of you guys consider making your own stocks? Walnut is relatively cheap and you could use a template made off of a 336 or even a 39A. to construct, all you really need is a jig saw, drawknife or spokeshave, rasp and smooth files, some sandpaper to getthe shape down and a router to do the inletling for the tangs. Sounds easy huh? It's not as hard as you might think. Give it a try, what's to lose?
Tru Oil is ok for a no pore smooth gloss finish (steel wool will make sort of satin) tung oil is slower but a little more natural.
I thought all of us had little shops that we puttered in in the winter cold months, so move that reloading press off the bench and make a stock!
The lower tang on a PG trigger plate is not bent. The difference between it and an SG plate is the thickness of the tang. The "internal" plane of the tang if you will, is the same.hunter718 said:Thanks for the replys so far.
Can the lower tang be bent for the PG? or are we running into some other problem there. I found those parts at Numrich. And found some PG stocks. Also know where there is another lever.
I would like to keep all the original parts off my CB and buy other parts for the conversion.
You will not be the only one looking. I had a guy lined up to swap parts and I guess he got to talking to his buddies about how rare PGs and FGs are and he changed his mind. Most people with PGs and FGs want to keep them that way. There are far more people looking for PG parts than SG parts. Any body can go out and buy a SG rifle, the only people that would swap with you are people that bought a PG or an FG then decided they didn't like the grip and were too silly to realize they could sell the PG or FG and buy a SG and make a profit to boot.hunter718 said:All-Thanks for the replys and pix. I put a ad in our classifieds to buy a 1894PG or I would trade my straight grip parts for pistol grip parts. If anyone sees what I am "needing" give me a holler. Thanks in advance. hunter
