    Question Ross Rifle Full stocks, Handguards, Parts and Barrels for Restoration?

    So I'm looking to restore a few sporterized Ross Rifles (Mk II & III) I have picked up. I need complete stocks including handguards in full military (reproduction) as well as front stock bands and front sight hoods. I saw contact information for Alberta Gun Stocks which I have attempted to reach out to them, but have not heard from them back yet. Does anyone know of any other companies who make full length reproduction stocks & handguards for these rifles? Preferably USAicon.

    Also, two of my rifles need new barrels (my Mk II is shot out and MkIII significant cut down to sporterized version). Does anyone in USA make reproduction Mk II and III barrels for Ross Rifles?

    All help/guidance is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Alberta Gun Stocks apparently has no internet site. Supposedly they are a stock duplicator. Never heard of 'em myself.
    New parts, of any kind, for Ross' will be problematic. Gunparts has some of the small parts. No barrels or stocks. Suspect both will be 100% cu$tom. Give these guys a shout. Cheap they ain't(even for you and it's in Cdn. dollars) but they say they have unfinished barrels(threaded not chambered .303 calibre. Absolutely requires a smithy who has .303 Brit tools. Reamers and head space gauges can be rented.) and they make stocks.

    I'm really new to this forum. I'm in search of Ross Mk II or III front sight parts,. especially the sight hood. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Click on altadiver (2nd post) he can help you with the repro metal bits. Bill at Alberta Gunstocks has been busy doing orders but altadiver takes care of his stock orders.

    Just wondering if you've had any success with your project yet, Shadowdoctor?

    Has anyone found a US supplier of Ross MKII 3* barrels? I tried McGowen barrel in MT, they just responded today with a resounding no.

    Given the breech configuration of a II*** barrel, it would take real commitment for a manufacturer to set up to make them.
