    Bob, You should be ashamed of yourself. Taking advantage of an old, decrepit old geezer like Charlie, eh I mean Joe. After all he not in the best of health between his ears right now and prognosis is not very good. He suffers from constant drooling over carbines There is hope for him and his kind that are afflicted the way he is. But it takes a lot of time and understanding. Till then we shall just have to put up with his rants and ravings. We know you can do it Joe (Charlie) and we are standing being you.

    OK, I checked those older threads, so now know the "story" on the little bombs - didn't even have to open a book! I think this stock I have is a Dupage and it's possible it came from the same eBay seller. The picture I posted was from the eBay 'Rockola' stock. I'll pull mine out and take a look, but I think it has an identical "bomb" on the wrist. One problem I was working on before putting it away for awhile, was to figure out why the action is completely loose in that stock. I'm hoping it's due to an out of spec (might be commercial) recoil plate, but am afraid the shelf in the stock isn't cut correctly. Been thinking of trying to improve on the shape of the snout too, but could end up with something that looks even worse! May take a look at it today while waiting for some fresh snow to melt. - Bob

    Carbine is still in the safe this morning. Been thinking about going out and filling the bird feeder - Maybe after the Nascar race is over. - Bob

    To The OP

    To AD-4NA,

    Apologize for getting so Off Topic.
    Maybe now you see what I have to deal with, these old Buzzards like Bruce and Bob.
    They're perfect examples of how low we set the bar for membership here....
    You should have seen them back in Boot Camp........

    Ok Charlie (I mean Joe) Go ahead and tell him about boot camp. Let him know there Bubba Gump what it was like. Why if it wasn't for Bob and I you would still be jumping off Shrimp boats instead of pretending to be a Picasso.

    Well, it’s probably past bedtime in Michigan by now, so I should be safe in posting about the "little bomb" on my repro Underwood stock. Yes, it's out of the safe and the action is even back out of the stock - been busy today! Here's a couple of pictures. I never noticed this before looking at the pictures, but there's a wood filler "repair" behind the recoil plate, and also noticed that the cuts in the stock for the action and recoil plate are off center to the left. The hand guard is the same width as the stock, but because of the way the stock is cut the hand guard sits to one side and the barrel band doesn't fit very well. The "bomb" looks a lot like the one posted earlier from the completed eBay auction. - Bob
