it will be a challenge, but will be easier once I know the sectional thickness of the stock where the front dial lays, and the distance from the back end of the forestock forward.
shoot em if you got em

yes indeed , there are a lot of little nuances to reconcile - im just going through my head all the set up required to jig it in place and get the cuts right , sounds like a fun project if you have the tools - i don't anymore and my old eyes have great difficulty with the thousands of an inch required to get it right , 

i would cut a few blanks before i set that stock in the jig - like i said im old - not messin with these intricacies anymore unless i have the time and the inclination - but you do so good on you my friend , have at it ,

The goods have arrived.
Not only is this stock set a work of art, it`s absolutely beautiful, also all the metal bits and then some, the best part is he included 2 unmarked end caps, one early and one later issue, plus a bunch of goodies I never expected.
Ralph is a real stand up guy.

End plates and is that the earlier style slotted shaft bolt head I see? Those bolt heads alone are something worth having.

hoadie, this kit is the listing he has on ebay, he lists it there for $425 complete assembly kit.
I bought direct from Ralph, I explained what I was doing and at no expense to me he add a bunch of stuff he thought could help with the restoration, nice cleaning kit, stock discs, stacking swivels, even an original LSA 1938 sling spare bolt heads etc etc.
Nice score, great Guy he is.
Oh and the stocks are; nulli secundus!!

Yes I believe it is, Ralph tried to find as much period correct stuff as he could, though he said he didn`t have much MkIII, mostly MkIII* and No4 stuff.
He`s going to let me know when the No5 sets are ready, I`m in for a set. He`s doing the non metal end cap variant. Then my NZ bush carbine will be back to a real No5 but sadly with drilled and tapped receiver...

Cheers

Now I am wishing I lived in Canuckistan! LOL  Just some of those early bits offset your cost. And that wood is gorgeous! I will get to the tracing for you tomorrow night and pics too. Work has been a pain this week.

Hey no worries. I know how work can be, Im run ragged right now at work myself.
Gun stocks and bits travel both ways across the boarder as long as its not parts that make it go boom.
Besides it'd only cost @ $10 US, our money aint worth jack.   lol

Got bit done on her over the last few evenings.
Mostly fitting the wood work, its been tedious, but coming along.
The stock isnt really a 1907 pattern stock so the swell where the front volley goes its quite beefy enough, but im going to run with it anyway.
I've layed it out based on my friends 1910, its close but not exact.
I found a windage adjustable rear sight with out the slider, so I need to go searching for an early slider.
Other than that I'll keep plugging away at her.
Having tons of fun with this project.
Cheers.
