Let's get this out of the way up front... I did not buy this wonderful POS nor would I have.
That said, my father bought a Universal manufactured M1 Carbine-ish rifle. Has a mid 300k serial so the proprietary parts models toward the end of the run. Anyway, he wants to shoot it, but it has a broken stock. Don't have the heart to tell him to junk it as he thought he had something.
Can anyone direct me toward a new/used/repo stock for the dual recoil assembly Universal carbines? All I saw @ numrich was more $ than he has in the gun.
Stock is split across the main action channel, diagonally from just behind the trigger group to the charging handle on the right and from the heat shield to the magwell on the left. Two separate pieces.
If you have a woodcraft store or rockler near by or any wood working store go there and see what they have for special wood glue. They should be able to help. Also if you have cracks in the stock drill a small hole on each end of the crack to keep it from spreading. Maybe get a dremel or use a utility blade to open up the crack a little to get more glue or epoxy in there
