Default Carl Gustav M94 Carbine

Now I have done it I've gone and purchased a Carl Gustav M94 Carbine. Now before you Mauser fans get all excited this dear little carbine has been butchered by Bubba and the original stock has been given the sporter treatment. Now I don't understand why anyone on earth would want to chop back a carbine when they are light enough as they are.

Now I know I'm a masochist but I want to return this bad boy back to its original configuration. And yes I know it will not be matching numbers you say, well I don't care about that. And I know you will say that I have more chance of finding a 4 leaf clover, a unicorn and a naked mermaid than a spare stock but I don't care about that either as I am a patient man and however long it takes me I will try and try to scout out a stock and hardware for it. The only saving grace is that the metal, meaning the action, bolt, trigger guard , sights and floorplate are all in original condition and matching numbers so its not a bitza rifle yet but it will be once I find a stock for it. Also it has not been drilled and tapped either.

The reason I got it is that it was a good price and I missed the Dutch Steyr carbine I sold before I got a chance to shoot it. Once the deal was done when I went out on a deer hunt before I posted the rifle, I took it with me to get rid of the reloads I had and what do you know it was shooting coke cans at 80 meters with open sights, dohhh!!

Now if my quest for a stock gets desperate I have a plan B. I will fit a Spanish Mauser 93 carbine stock to it and just hold out till the Real McCoy comes along. I just want to dress it up in military configuration so I can have fun shooting at the military shoots. I know it won't shoot like a Springfield or M96 but its just a bit of fun.

Now if you dear folk hear about or see a stock or any other hardware for sale for this little carbine I would please like to know about it. Any assistance will be really appreciated. I know they are not cheap either but I'm happy to pay what I paid for the rifle to buy a stock for it.

Here is the photo please don't laugh or cry too loud. Cheers. Jorge

P.S. Now I think about it does not probably belong in the collectors corner in the state it is in.
