    Back in the 1960's, Herters offered rough stock blanks for most surplus arms. The 'notch' on the left-side of your stock was probably intended for the Kragicon's Magazine Cut-Off Lever.

    The Krag barrel does 'lift' upon firing and a lot of torque is transferred to stock's 'action-area'. Because your stock partially covers the side-plate, it is a bit stronger (than a U.S. Krag stock).



    A barrel-band or improvised forearm screw keeps the Krag barrel in the channel where it belongs.

    I'll have to look around on the net to see how other people have handled this and determine the best method to manage the recoil without binding to forward on the barrel. It rifle still has the magazine cut-off which looks to be functional.

    Need to figure this out soon, just ordered some Hornady .30-40 ammo for it.

    Thank you again for the information.

    The U.S. Kragicon Military stocks addressed the issue by anchoring the barrel with a rear barrel-band (and also a front band in the case of rifles).

    The Norwegianicon military Krags, in addition to barrel-bands, employed a stock/barrel-screw that anchored the barrel a few inches in front of the receiver ring.

    Knowledgeable gunsmiths use to put a band on the barrel that anchored via a screw through a stock. Some dovetailed, soldered or brazed an 'under-lug' or recoil shoulder to the bottom of the barrel and drilled & tapped the lug to take a stock screw.

    Hobbyists that ignored these remedies risked stock splits.

    Leroy Rice once offered this interesting approach.

    I think I found some barrel bands that I can use but I need to do some measurements. It'll be nice if I could find something already made.. If not I'm going to see if I can come up with something in my shop or using my buddies machine tools. Thanks for the help!
