Mg42 wood stock ww2 german

Postby schmisser » Sun Dec 16, 2018 9:23 pm

:wnana: 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?

Another area of interest to me. Anyone have any info, thoughts on this subject?
There were a few minor postings on a few things. Wire wrap 4 or 5 times, German / yugo. Slightly different in the top shape / shark vs dolphn.
And of course how they were made.
