It's only metal, it's not magic.
akblue,, what I've done on the ones I've had with those terrible thumb hole stocks, is to just cut a kerf in a regular stock and make the tenon section of the new stock fit the angled receiver and just added a thick recoil pad to make up the difference in length you removed to make the stock fit the angle. It makes a nice clean looking modification without adding a,,IMO,,goofy looking filler panel. It looks much nicer,,The first one I did, I did that way too and I really didn't like the looks of it and that's how I got around it. The recoil pad isn't really all that bad to have in place either on the 308's.
That makes a much more professional looking mod. and is very easy to do, and if you do it careful you won't even need to touch the stock finish, just seal the end grain where you remove the wood "wedge" as it's hidden anyways. Obviously you'll have to remove a bit of the end of the tenon sense it sits deeper but still no biggie to do. I used a Japanese cabinet makers saw that cut a really fine curf, and that worked super, I've seen others just use a hack saw, and that did OK too.
That's just what I've done before that works real well with very little effort and you won't end up with a filler panel.
Just a suggestion from what I've done in the past that worked real well for me. Some of those thumb hole stocks,,DO,,, really suck,,for sure !! I had one of the WASR one's that was really bad,,you needed 10 foot long fingers to get around the grip on that one. That one got the stock treatment too, obviously ,,other than this one had the straight receiver, even easier yet, no difference in LOP so no pad was reqiured.
Nice to have that option to be able to have access to all the equipment you need to do a good job. I don't anymore,,sadly,,,sense I'm not @ the marina anymore. Before 06 I had access to just about everything you'd ever need, to do ANYTHING,,even plasma cutters, tig, sheet metal break's(like a 10' long one!!), panel bead rollers, English Wheel,,,,, the whole 9 yards,,,ain't got chit to work with now by comparison!!! Very frustrating now trying to do stuff nicely, or even to consider doing a build or a major hot rod project now.
Other than mass quantities of mechanics hand and air tools, I've just got a Snap-on "airport" stye box with a tow hitch and a suspension on 2 wheels,1 side box w/6 drawers,2 top box's, and 1 intermediate box,and 1 small roll around bottom. Every drawer over flowing,,,just no machine shop tools or welders now.
Only basic hand tools now,
but still,,, almost every tool known to man,, And Lord Knows,,I've been told,, I'm the fussiest fucker you'll ever see with them,,"Mr Persnickety",, Guilty,,,,,,I like quality built,,,everything!
I got enough hand tools, marine and body shop tools to fix just about anything ! Just no machine shop and welders,,,,Gerrrr, that really limits the projects now. Especially on my hot rods and guns.
twa2471., funny you mention that. I just lost access to a complete hobby machine shop that I had free access to for the last 15 years or so. The fellow that owned it died in his late 80's some years ago. His widow kept the 2,000 square foot shop and rented the adjacent building. We had all the sutff., vertical & horizontal mills, lathe., surface grinder, metal band saws., and every cutting and filing and welding tool., reamers, drill bits presses etc..
All gone as his widow just got too old to want to bother keeping the "shop". Thought about buying it with a friend but it is too much stuff and not as close to my home as desiu\rable. And so it goes. I share some of your loss of tools. I have my "home stuff" but no comparison to a complete 1950's/60's equipped shop. All high quality tools., USA, German or Swiss made etc.,
Those hand guards look like cherry wood. Where did you get them?
