Yes, came with everything. Birch, though...Nice stock. Butt pad is well cushioned but a bit grippy. Only observation (not sure it's a complaint) is the stock reinforcement is non-metallic - probably a polymer of sorts. I suppose if it bugs me a lot I could transplant the metal one from my 1980-vintage Choate folder or buy a metal one.Dang, that's a steal for a brand new one. Did it come with the reinforcement?
Thanks!Very nice work, Coletrain! I have a GB model already, but have been working on a modified 6" Accustrut that spans the bayo lug. Your clamp-on bayo lug might still allow me to mount a bayonet, just a little further forward. Hmmm.
Actually, I measured with my bayonet and it would fit - barely (it would just go around the muzzle end of the flash hider rather than the base). I was considering grinding a bayonet lug into the end of my modified Accustrut but decided I don't have the skills or machinery to do that. To use your bayonet lug, I would have to shorten my strut some and the front clamp of the strut would be snugly sandwiched between the original sight/bayonet lug and yours.Thanks!
If you put a bayonet lug in front of the strut you may not have enough room to still get the bayonet ring to land on the flash hider. you might be able to get it to work by mounting is sideways right in front of the GB bayonet lug under the strut. Or you you could find a longer flash hider or muzzle break.
If I remember correctly, the original GB's use a 9/16-24 RH thread. Same as the L1A1. That flash hider has a bayonet lug on it. the bayonet lugs and the flash hider are both kinda cheap.
Understandable. I haven't really ever messed with my 10/22. It's fine the way it came.Actually, I measured with my bayonet and it would fit - barely (it would just go around the muzzle end of the flash hider rather than the base). I was considering grinding a bayonet lug into the end of my modified Accustrut but decided I don't have the skills or machinery to do that.

I have never taken my GB flash hider off, so I wouldn't know the threading. While the L1A1 flash hider is appealing, I just want to keep my GB original, since it is my first firearm. Were I to get a new one to toy with making it look more like a miniature M14, I might be inclined toward it. Thanks for the tip!
Sir, what do ya' need to know? it is just a factory barrel 185 series. i cut the lug & band part off a old M1 carbine barrel band set up. drilled out the rivets clamped it over my barrel useing small bolts with nuts. the barrel ring in the carbine bayonet fits the end of my barrel very well. just let me know if i can give ya' anymore info. Cav.These are early M-1 bayonets. You can also put them on a 1903 and 1903a3. The loop/hole that goes over the end of the barrel is real close to .625. I'm thinking it might be possible to use an M-1 Carbine clamp on mount and this bayonet to make your gun bayonet capable. Otherwise you are going to have to thread and install an M-16 flash hider and use the M7 bayonet. If cavtrpr340could give us more information about his clamp on bayonet lug I think we could figure this out.
I get what you mean. I wish I could, but there are a few issues right now.Here is what I'm talking about,only with a pin on top and allan screws on the bottom made for mini14 583
The short answer: the one that puts you on target.Which height M1A sight do you use for the dovetailed version?
