Latest restoration project, Thompson stocks


Recommended Posts

Recently while buying from one of my local haunts, the guy takes me in the back and "shows" me something I need. He explains that some guy was wanting to buy them to cut up and make ink pen bodies. I couldn't have that, so here they are.

They had been sitting in a barn for quite a few years until the guy died. They were completely covered in dirt and spider webs. There were 15 total and about half had minor defects such as chatter from whatever planer cut them. All have the front screw, but nothing else. I will probably post these for sale when I get them done.

This is the first one done. They were quite dry, so I used some wood restoration liquid to get them back to par. The wood gouge is one of the worst of them all.

Nice find and well done on saving these wonderful stocks.

Always looking for uniquely marked helmets, WWI and WWII American Field Service items, WWII and earlier USMC items and named or numbered medals and medal groups.

I don't think I was planning on it, just fell in my lap that way.

You can expect to be the butt of some humour! :lol: (pun in-tended)
