Good day gentlemen and ladies. I was wondering if one of you could do me the good favor of a tale of the tape. If you will. I’m restoring the 1906 , what I don’t have is the dimensions schedule. I was wondering if someone could pull a tape on there stock and forearm. So I might get a more accurate replication. Especially the slope of the stock. From what I’ve seen it has quite a drop. Just need to know the measurement basically from the straight line on the top of the barrel to the top of the stock. I can get it from there I think. And I do understand this is a lot to ask I really appreciate anyone’s cooperation and they’re kind assistance in helping me bring small piece of America back to life. Thank you all have a blessed day.

Just my humble opinion here, but would imagine it would be best to take a wood blank to someone with a stock duplicating machine if your wanting to reproduce a stock. That way you know for certain you have all the dimensions correct. Otherwise your relying on someone to measure.

May be easier and/or cheaper to buy a replacement stock.

Either way if you go to a gunsmith or restorer that has a duplicating machine. If he doesn’t already have the pattern for the stock you will likely have to provide one. And you’ll need an original stock to do so. Unless your current stock is not overly damaged and could be used for the duplication.

You might try these folks.

Not a bad price for that set, honestly.
