Description / M2 Carbine Stock
The M2 Carbine Stock is an all-original wooden stock for the M2 Carbine. These M2 Carbine stocks were made for the Korean war, and were taken off of and replaced with these stocks placed in storage. The reason for these stocks being taken off varies from stock-to-stock, but overall the use of the rifles which these stocks were installed on during the Korean War would have resulted in wear and tear.
With home gunsmithing becoming more popular, these authentic Korean War M2 Carbine Stocks represent a unique and interesting opportunity. There are small defects in each stock, ranging from cracks to blemished finishes. With time, patience, and effort these can be repaired to look great and all of the parts are available for them to be installed on your M1 or M2 Carbine. If you have ever wanted to learn how to repair cracks in wood or gun stocks specifically, these stocks are perfect to practice with and you will not spend much money.
Once repaired and refinished, the value of these stocks will only increase as there are no more "USGI M2 Carbine" stocks being produced.

They also don't cost $150 either. I ordered 2, both were serviceable. Some serious sanding for the dents, dings, scratches, and underneath: walnut! It's like opening a really well wrapped Christmas present. The recoil plate and screw solidly rusted in place; not a problem for the gun you're going to toss behind the seat in the pickup :) .
For people that want a stock to pose with in a "Glamour-Shot", this is NOT the stock you're looking for :(.
For the rest of us, that actually have work to do, it's perfect. Our carbine can go everywhere with us and the original stock can stay pretty, at home in the gun case.
You could call it a beater stock, but with a little work, they are better than that.
As said: "a steal at $20"!!!
