As originally manufactured the M1 rifle had a very graceful and functional stock, due to the necessity of mass production during World War II many of the finer points of this early stock were deleted. While more difficult to produce, Dupage Trading Company opted to have the prewar 1939 pattern duplicated. This stock set is made to our specifications by Boyd Gun Stock Industries in South Dakota.
We specify 1st quality American black walnut in the construction of our stocks, they are turned on CNC machines to exacting dimensions and closely follow the original design. Our M1 stock sets consist of the butt stock, a front, and a rear handguard. A stain that closely matches the original look of a 75-year-old stock set has been applied. This is to ensure that all three pieces of the stock set match in color.
The most difficult part of metal component assembly on a Garand is the handguards. So we include a complete set of used GI handguard metal pre-assembled for free. Also included at no cost on our finished stock sets is a used GI stock ferrule and swivel, that’s $25 of free stock metal with every finished stock set. A stock set without the stain and metal components is also available. We think that you will find the Dupage Trading Company M1 stock set is the most authentic looking and carefully manufactured stock on the market.
