An Estimated 40% Of An M1s Accuracy Comes From a Proper Fitting Stock Set!
This entire page has information regarding what we do to the M1 stock sets. Please look to the information regarding a special receiver cut we make after the pricing section of this page.
What do we do…please let me explain. The stock sets we receive are machine inletted, but still requires hand fitting of all three pieces for better fit and accuracy of the rifle.
Below are pictures of equipment purchased for just the fitting of these stock sets we work on.
Two power tools used for the final fitting of the hand guards and stocks. The belt sander on the left has a special guide bar (hard to see in the picture) that controls the stock while making the receiver cut I describe below. The other tool is used for trimming off excess wood from the bottom of hand guards and tops of stocks.
And this is the workbench with parts and tools used for the final fitting of stock sets. (Not shown are many different files and wood chisels. )
Why do all this??? It is for accuracy. With the M1, 40% of the rifles accuracy comes from the stock set. To achieve the rifles accuracy potential a proper fitting stock set from DGR is needed. Plus, send us your trigger group and we will fit the stock to your trigger group, giving you a true "custom fit" at no additional charge to you!
And we finish these stock sets! That does not mean we simply apply some stain and oil, it means each piece is meticulously sanded. Type 2 finishes get sanded to 220 grit before stain and oil is applied. For DGR’s type 1 finish all are sanded to 600 grit.
So if you are looking for a stock set where accuracy and appearance is important…you have come to the right place.
And Sometimes Customers Say It Best!
I received my semi fancy, shiny finished M1 stock w new metal from you several weeks ago and put the action in it and finally got to shoot it on Monday afternoon. The rifle shot reasonably well in the CMP stock after I modified the fit of it, now after putting the DGR stock on it, it shoots very well. After getting a mechanical wind zero on the rifle, my last five shots were 3Xs and 2 10s on the SR target at 200yd. It looks good and it shoots very good, thanks. SF
