    threaded rod in cleaning rod channel

    I'm fixing up a pretty trashed type 38 arisaka stock at the moment, has had a couple of sections rot out from oil soak etc that I've had to cut out and replace. I was thinking about acraglasing a threaded rod down the whole length of the cleaning rod channel to give it support. Would this act as a hammer over time though with recoil, smacking the receiver apart or if its glassed in would it be ok?? (I did think of using a wooden dowel instead but its probably a bit flimsy) thanks

    I would NOT irreversibly fill up the rod channel.

    Instead, I suggest you apply this method:

    A 15-rupee Jezail - Page 2 - British Militaria Forums

    - which was a reversible fix to a broken and incomplete stock that also allowed the channel to still be used to hold a ramrod!

    (Start on Page 2, Post #20, if you don't want to read the whole thread)

    How about a photo of your stock, to judge the feasibility of this method?

    "Would this act as a hammer over time though with recoil, smacking the receiver apart or if its glassed in would it be ok?? "

    No problem. There is no hammer effect. Ramrods/cleaning rods tend to walk forwards under recoil.

    Scopes, mounts, rods, etc; as mentioned, want to move forward under recoil. The receiver is what wants to slam back into other things, hence the recoil lugs and bearing surfaces designed to evenly bring this force into the stock.

    That said, if truly bonded into place, there will not be a momentum differential between them.

    That said, if the stock needs that much repair, have you exhausted finding another? I've seen stocks break on the firing line. Some shooters have been quite lucky with where the wooden stake then goes.

    Cheers for the ideas. This stock was free and is more just practicing than trying to make it mint and original (all the original finish was removed by a acetone bath apparently. And it’s going to have so many little bits glued back on it’ll never be worth anything (that’s the reason I’m not bothered about filling the cleaning rod hole)
    Replacement stocks in New Zealandicon are almost impossible to find, in saying that this one will be recoverable, if not a bit patchy.
    Was a good read, thanks for the link. I’m lucky my stocks not broken like that, just small patches of soft, crumbly black wood. I might see if I can find a hardwood dowel as an alternative, or at least a packer to make any steel rod I use much shorter just to bridge the area I need rather than the full length
