Default Project Nr One - Husqvarna Mdl 648 - Cracked Stock

Friends & neighbors,

Well, here we go.........BAD NEWS.........In checking the stock and attempting to get good photos -- well found another crack!!! This may become a study in hopelessness and frustration........but we will press on and see what happens.

First some historical data.....My particular rifle was manufactured approximately 1948.....The model number is designated by caliber......8x57 Mauser equals Model 648. These rifles had three similiar but different actions. The Swede Model 96 (small ring, **** on close), FN 98 (large ring, military version with thumb cut and clip guide--MINE) and the FN 98 Commercial (no thumb cut and no clip guide. From what info I have been able to obtain, stock wood was either birch or beech. I believe mine to be BEECH! Here is the original pic to familiarize you with what we are talking about.
