My 91/30 stock split the other day at the range. Can I repair this easily or should I replace the stock? Its nothing rare, just a 1943 Itzhevsk round receiver.

Personally I would pull the recoil lug, fill the crack with wood glue and clamp until dry. Then just keep an eye on it.

This. Maybe run a brass screw or two down through the top in front of the recoil lug and trim off as well.

I have an extra 91/30 stock that I have no use for. It's in good shape. If you want to cover shipping, its yours.

Thanks for the offer. I think I will try to repair this one because I like a little challenge, but if it doesn't work I may hit you up.

Anytime. Good luck on your repair. Don't forget to post pics, and a 'how to', and a range report, and pics of the range report...

Tagged for results of repair. My m44 has a hairline crack at the wrist I missed when it was first delivered. I've been debating whether to replace it or try to repair it.

Mosin stock repair kit



Seriously, I'd get a new one –– or three.

i ordered 3 stock sets this morning even though i just bought a stock set last week for a stock i had that broke

that is a damn good deal that aim has

That's a postwar refurb replacement stock anyway. I'd replace it, and use shims to make sure the replacement is bedded correctly before shooting.

This, but with stainless steel screws. Pre drill the holes and counter sink the heads. I do gun stocks on the side. Easy fix, but if you want to swap it, Aim Surplus has mosin stocks fairly cheap.
