I inherited my Grandfathers 1890 22 WRF. I have researched enough to know it was made in 1910. It is in relatively good shape and still shoots well. I am inquiring to you all about how the stock is presently assembled. I would like to refurbish this gun and would really like to get a new stock.

I think my grandfather drilled a hole in the upper part of the stock and inserted a bolt all the way. As I don’t see this bolt in any other pictures of 1890 models. Also, there is a screw in the middle of the stock , on the left side only, which looks to be factory part. I do see this (very infrequently) in pictures of other 1890’s. 

Can you tell me :

1) Why my grandfather may have drilled this bolt thru the upper stock and will a new stock eliminate this bolt?

2) what might the screw in the middle of stock, left side be? Will I need this with a new stock (I’m not seeing any new stocks with this screw)

 

Thanks for your help

Some pictures may greatly clarify your questions. Not being a member, you can’t post pictures directly. Email pics to me and I’ll post them for you.

The bolt through the stock is an old school repair. The stock is cracked through the tang and likely further back into the stock. If you remove the stock screw at the rear of the top tang and remove the butt stock it will be obvious. These stocks come up frequently on GB and Ebay. Expect to pay between $125-$175 for one in decent condition.
