I need a buttplate for a project 91/30. Are the mosin buttplates/stocks pretty standard in shape?

Thanks,

T

I can tell you that there is a variance at least in some. I tried to swap an older style MN stock onto my new refurb 1923 Izzy and the deal breaker was that the buttplate from my rifle was at least a 1/4" too short leaving an exposed section of the toe. ~Andy

Early ones are flush with later ones having a recess in the screw hole that protrudes from the back. They are supposed to be the same size but not really.

Aw, crap!

Thanks for all the responses, but I was hoping for more uniformity. Oh well, I have one on the way and maybe I'll get lucky and it will fit my stock. If not, I can see a post entitled "how do I bend a mosin buttplate??" in my near future!! ;)

Thanks, T

As you build up the number of Mosins in your possession you also get parts for assorted reasons. Restoration purposes etc. The parts are not uniform for the most part but yeah thats part of the fun. Keep looking, ordering and shopping and you'll find what you need eventually.

"If you had posted your buttstock's dimensions beforehand, I'm pretty sure one of us might have one that would fit. I know I have a couple extra floating around."

If this one doesn't fit, I'll probably do just that.

Thanks, T

I thought the older ones were milled, or at least thicker or cast or something and not stamped.
Ive only tried a couple times to put on a missing butt plate and niether time would it fit correctly.
