Wood stock blank for MK-85?

Wood stock blank for MK-85?

Postby OuttaHand » August 19th, 2014, 4:10 pm

I bought a used MK-85 with the stock plastic thumbhole stock. Looks like it should work well -- if ur right-handed.

Several years ago I lost vision in my right eye and had to switch to left-handed shooting.

Anyone know where I could buy an inletted, or semi-inletted wood stock blank for this gun? I'd like to shape and finish it myself.

Check here> They may have some inletted laminates that will still work for lefties.

Thanks! That's a good starting point. Their site shows they are sold out, but I'll give them a call and see what they can recommend.

Thank you! I guess I didn't dig deep enough.
These look like real good options!

Well -- I ordered this one:

I'm eager to get it in-hand and see how it looks. More importantly, to see how it fits the gun.
I would imagine I may need to do a little fine work to get it to seat properly, but that's OK.

Next, I have to decide on the finish.

Thanks for your help!

I appreciate your interest. I've thought about selling it, but I think I want to keep it. I want to be able to put it back on in case I want to sell the gun some day.
