    That stock is pretty beat, that crack is pretty bad, and it has been refinished more than once. The nut you are speaking of is the standard escutcheon for the recoil lug, it's just not fully seated....

    5.7 Johnson firearms and reloading supplies are still available, but rare. Only about 200 original Johnson "Spitfire" carbines were made by Melvin Johnson's son's. The market to convert rifles never...

    I learned a long time ago that assumptions and speculations are generally incorrect. So I have no idea how that wear of the finish occurred, but in my experience as a retired machinist, mechanic, and...

    There is no way a single use of a receiver wrench (or even several uses) could cause that much finish wear, even if it was only painted.

    Actually you did as you suggested that someone with an M2 receiver merely had to scrub that stamping off and voilą it's no longer an M2. That you don't think that's advice doesn't change that it...

    You are correct. I just checked out Bruce Canfield's work and that serial number does fall within the serial number range (7,369,661 to 8,069,660) of the Inland produced M2. I should have looked...

    Just because it has an M2 stock doesn't mean it was originally an M2 carbine. I've purchased several carbines that came with an M2 stock.

    You know, if everyone was satisfied with a plain gun there would be no engraved or silver and gold plated guns. They don't have to make you happy, they have to make the person that buys them happy....

    I would have used two part epoxy, but I hope that works for you. However I have used a CA glue called "Hot Stuff" for hairline cracks with good success. First cleaning out the oil in the crack with...

    And you have that right. I've already gone the "I want one anyway" route and finally decided I don't need to be able to supply a whole platoon of infantry and sold a bunch, focusing on those I want...

    I myself already have four, so $1,800 or more to buy another just didn't seem reasonable.

    Except the OP didn't ask about torquing a barrel, he asked how much torque the action requires. And though that question has already been answered I'll offer that those rifles and actions were never...
