I have wanted to know how the original stocks were made? I know 98k stocks were pressed out of pieces of beech wood and glued in a mold with red or white resin. I have never seen a mg 42 stock that was made in this fashion. I have not seen a oak made stock either. The most common made stock had a ivg44 mark with eagle. How many manufactuers made wood stocks? How many were made by other companies?
