Hi Winchester pals, I am in need of two replacement stocks for my small accumulation. I need to find where I might procure a used straight stock for an 1895 Winchester made in 1911 with a curved butt plate and a used stock for an 1894 SRC with a straight stock and curved butt plate. Both have broken, chipped or split wrists and are not servicable. Any help would be appreciated. THANK YOU, Mark "Dirty Doc" ZacharyConfusedConfused

The 1894 stock should be fairly easily located on gunbroker or Ebay. (check weekly)  Your chances of finding an original 1895 stock are pretty slim. Guessing you will have to have one made....  If it's just the tang that is split and the crack doesn't extend into the wrist, that's a pretty easy fix. Best of luck in your quest.

Try Homestead parts.  They usually have both stocks but run out of inventory from time to time so just keep trying them.

SmileSmileSmileSmileSmile  MANY THANKS, GUYS & GALS, I am contacting Homestead via E-mail and am plotting repairs to the 1895 and to the 1894 if I get it. On the 1895 stock, there is a chip off of the right front. The tang inlet is cracked/split almost back to the bolt hole. I am a lousy woodworker, but could figgure it out if I knew what kind of glue to use. I fixed a 100 year old pool table by using square carpet tacks to slightly spread the cracks, filled with ELMER'S PROFESSIONAL dark walnut glue and clamped the splits and cracks together with wood clamps for a week. Glue is no longer available, so I don't know what to use. I also fixed the handguard and buttstock of an Australian L1-A1 that had been run over my a deuce & a half. Same stuff. NO PROBLEMS. Glue still unobtanium. I will scout E-bay & GunBroker for crappy looking wood ND BEG FOR ANY INPUT ON GLUes adhesives, epoxies, PC-47s, etc... again, THANK YOU ERIN & ROCK

I don't know of any pre stained glue but you could mix it yourself.  I like to add walnut sawdust to glue to make wood filler.  I prefer to use Titebond glue.  Don't get hung up on all the different glues.  Even Elmer's white glue is strong enough.  As far as using water resistant or water proof glue, I wouldn't waste my money unless I was going to soak the wood in a bucket of water for long periods.  Once properly glued and an oil or other finish applied it will last longer than we will.  Glues that claim to fill voids are very porous when dry.  Take a sample and put a lump on a flat surface and let it dry.  Then cut it open it will look like the inside of a sponge.  I due use a thick type super glue for some delicate areas that you just can't clamp.  It is applied with the supplied applicator brush.  Be careful with super glues and epoxies.  If you get them on your finish you will be out of luck.  Normal wood glue can be wiped off the finish with no harmful effects.
