Re: Israeli 98 Mauser Stock Re Finishing

you can find take off military stocks pretty cheap on the net. they even make new military style stocks for the '98 mauser. if you dont military, then boyds makes some nice laminates that are really reasonably priced.

If bedding is out, do what mrbigtexan suggests,,,,, beause that appears to be where your problem (with the cracks) lies.

Re: Israeli 98 Mauser Stock Re Finishing

I dropped it off at a gun smith specializing in old bolt actions. He said he drills angled holes where ever there is a crack and fills it with fiberglass and bedding compound. He said that by adding the holes it increased the surface area of the bedding compound and he said everything looks as it should. He won't be able to do it for two months. I think I could probably do it myself but want a professional job. I figure if it cracks again I will just by another stock.
