BUTTSTOCK storage/door


Chili Ron

Recommended Posts

Howdy,

Some rifles have a little door on the buttplate and cleaning rods can be stored

in the buttstock.

I have always thought it would be a nice and not too expensive option but

not many rifles have it.

Seems like a drillpress a vice and most any rifle with a wood stock

could be storing cleaning rods too.

Anyone know of a place making the plates for marlins, rossi etc??

Good luck, Ron. Never seen or heard the likes of such a butt plate for a Marlin or Rossi

looked inn Brownells and found these

http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=24758/Product/M1_GARAND_STEEL_BUTTPLATE $25

http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=21393/avs|Manufacturer_1=SPRINGFIELD%20ARMORY/Product/BUTT_PLATE_ASSEMBLY__COMPLETE $25

there are a few others in the $25 to $30 range but

all the ones at Brownells seem to be the M1 M14 design and I personally think the Lee Enfield round trap is better looking than the oval M1. Or if you want to spend many evenings in front of the TV with an assortment of files you cold make your own out of any steel plate it is not hard to design a trap door just time consuming to do as a one off
