    Default Albanian 91/30 stock ?

    I asked about this several years ago but lost the information on it. I think someone said it was an Albanian stock for the 91/30. Help would be appreciated.

    Check-out Ted's page on the Albanian 91/30:

    Interesting, yes. Not experienced enough to say with certainty, but some of the features are consistent with the link that Richard provided.

    Just to throw out some more food for thought, and some comparisons to other beech stocks. I recently picked up an Albanian stocked M44 with beech and the flat rear comb area that does not extend as far forward as your example. Also, notice that the grasping grooves are offset on the Romanian stock, and not on the one above. Pics.








    And to note. The Poles also issued a beech 91/30 stock with the same sling slot escutcheon combination as the OP example. Comb is not flattened. The Hungarians also had beech as furniture - no pics of that yet.

    I looked at the pics on 7.62x54r and the comb is flat the whole length on my stock so any ideas on what country it is from?

    I believe this to be an Albanian as well. Note how flat the top of the butt stock is and how wide the side rails are. Not sure what the wood is. Could be beech.

    Default Abanian Acacia stock

    I've had this ex PU for quite some time. It has what we believe to be a Albanian stock in Acacia wood. OP's stock is identical, even to the rough cut sling slots!

    I'm no expert on wood genus, but I think it looks like beech.

    wink2 beech/acacia??????????

    Years ago, I recollect the summer of '05, We had quite a discussion about this stock. The consensus was it was acacia. Beech is very similar. I don't know for sure? I have quite a few Swedes in beech, and this is different. I was a carpenter for 49 years, and I don't know much about wood types, just made mountains of sawdust, cutting the stuff up and makin wages!
