Remington Model 30 Question
 
Working on a model 30 Remington, need to locate a combat stock, customer is looking to make his handed down model 30 into a quasi The U.S. Army XM2010 rifle. or something close. the problem is I can't seem to locate any stocks. So question is how close is a Remington long action stock. Any specs on the to rifles would be helpful. thanks

Give bob's gun parts call and see if they can help with any parts or a direction to go for some. Wonder if a 1917 enfeild stock would work as the remmy 30 is a veriation of the 1917 springfield/ enfeild action..

Remington Model 30 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


In 1918, after the end of World War I and termination of contracts for both the P14 and M1917, Remington was left with two factories (the main factory at Ilion and a subsidiary at Eddystone) tooled up to make the M1917, and was also left with a large inventory of stored spare parts.[3] It was decided to make a sporting version of the P14-M1917 model rifles at the Ilion plant. In 1921, Remington introduced the Model 30 High Power sporting rifle in caliber 30-06 Springfield. Early models differed from the military rifles by deleting the prominent rear sight protection ears and machining the receiver bridge to the same diameter as the receiver ring, and straightening the floorplate. These changes made for a better-looking rifle but magazine capacity was reduced from 6 to 5 rounds. The barrel was of the military profile but shortened slightly to 24". The barreled action was placed into a sporter type stock of plain American black walnut with a schnabel fore-end and a steel buttplate grooved to prevent slipping. A simple receiver aperture sight was fitted to the receiver bridge by a dovetail. This sight was soon discontinued and replaced with one mounted further forward on the barrel band. The Mauser type cock-on-closing feature, and the double stage military type trigger were retained. In 1926, the stock was refined with a higher and thicker comb. A crossbolt was added, and chequering of the pistol grip and fore-end became standard. There was a deluxe Model 30S made 1930-32 with a better designed and chequered stock, a Lyman 48 receiver type sight called Model 30 Express.

You might want to imform your customer that he is altering a valuable rifle. He could easily sell this for more money than an original 1917.

Did you ever build that model 30? I am looking for an original replacement stock for mine.

I would advise the customer to sell the old rifle. Then use the proceeds from the sale to build a modern sporting rifle. He will get a rifle that suits his intended purpose better. In the event he wants to sell the rifle down the road he will not be able to recover the cost of the stock.
