Default Wanting to restore a Springfield

My son showed me a Springfield rifle that him and a buddy and his buddy's dad is trying to restore.

They only have the metal, no stock.

So they are in need of a stock and possibly some miscellaneous parts.

Anybody have any ideas where one could get such stuff?

Thanks.

richman;
You did not say what rifle exactly you are looking for but more than likely from WWII and Springfield it is probably either a Garand or Carbine? If you are looking for the M-1 Garand check here, they probably also have stocks for M-1 Carbine at this site as well. The site is the CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) and they sell WWII era rifles intact as well!!!

Well all I can go by is what he told me, that it is a springfield, minus the stock.

It didn't appear to be a grand nor a carbine...granted the only thing I'm referencing here is the game models.

I think Raiders has some screen shots, in this form, of WWII weapons. Maybe it was AHz. I'll take a look.

But like I said, I'm going off of what he said. He is pretty reliable, 20 yrs old....

But thanks for that link, I'll forward it on to them. Maybe I can arrange some pics to show.

thank again.
