Thread: Winchester Model 94 Stock Replacement?

  1. #1

    Default Winchester Model 94 Stock Replacement?

    A few years ago a good friend of mine gave me an older pre-64 .32 special for deer hunting. I hunted with it several times, but I am just not that accurate with that rifle because the stock is somewhat small and my cheek doesn't rest on it very well. He used a 30-30 with a larger stock (maybe even had a cheek pad) that I found fit me much better.

    My good friend was killed in a mining accident this week, and I very much want to hunt with the rifle this year. I'd sure like to find a replacement stock that will work a little better, but I'm no gunsmith and I'm not sure where to start.

    I'd like to know a few things before ordering a new stock:

    -What are the names of 'larger' stocks that have more substance and would be easier to rest my cheek on?
    -Are there cheek-pad style stocks for this rifle?
    -Who sells these kinds of stocks?
    -How big a job is this and can a newbie replace a stock very easily?


    Can anybody point me in the right direction?

    Thank you,

    Originals are where you find them, but when an original wasn't required I've had very good luck with Boyds. Always very clean wood and great fit.

    This stock builder in NC may have what you are looking for. Very resonable prices.

    Another possibility is 'SHOW ME' gunstocks in MO. Excellent reputation.

    Sorry about your friend.

    You might try gunpartscorp and see if they have a stock. I'd think a nice used one would have more class than a new made.

    My NRA book says : "Unscrew upper tang screw (28) and remove buttstock."

    If you're loading for the .32 and need some brass, shoot me a PM. I bought and stashed more than I can use in several life times.

    Thanks for the replies guys, I will check out those sights.

    Can anybody give me some insight into what a more substantial stock is called (as opposed to the skinnier stocks that don't offer enough wood under your cheek? I'm not sure the term but thought it would be helpful to describe the problem to the store.

    Thanks

    You probably need to just buy a leather lace on cheek piece or comb as all 94 stocks are fairly thin

    I think what you are describing would be a Monte Carlo comb such as this one on gunbroker.

    A custom stock maker such as Show-Me stocks in MO should be able to make one and it should not cost a fortune. They could even add a cheek piece if desired.
