I have an m1917 Enfield that has a rather poorly repaired duffel cut. The stock came apart at the (brass) dowels from the previous repair after a few shots. I tried my best to repair it but it came loose again after a few shots yet again. Considering every stock I have found costs as much as the gun did to begin with, I'm looking for someone that can properly repair it. Anyone have any leads?

Could it be possible that the brass dowel holes are very loose? If it is loose have you thought about replacing the brass dowels with larger diameter wooden dowels and then gluing it in place?

I am a retired cabinet maker. Since retirement I have made quite a few gun stocks from scratch. I also make pistol grips and sell on ebay. RTF grips.

If you can email a picture of the stock, I can probably either help you with how to fix it or I can take it to my shop and fix it. I live near Wittmann but
am in Surprise quite often where I do my shopping. I will PM my email address. I don't like advertising it for scammers.
