Help with id of this stock

I recently acquired two stocks one of which is a mystery to me. This photo shows the inletting, which is a flat bottom and sides large recoil lug and the tang is short and fat! Bolt slot, while not shown, is straight down.

Any ideas???

Looks like it's for a Mauser action. That looks like a cutout for the bolt release on the left side.

Sako comes to mind... the tang looks too fat and short to be for a Mauser 98. Looks like a nice stick of wood too.

Hi Evan, it is a spectactular piece of wood with a couple of issues. My plan is to try to sell it as is, but it needs a lot of work. Grip area way too fat, a chip out of the toe, an area at the back of the fore end tip and at the inlet for the fore arm swivel base that is inletted.

I don't think this is a Mauser either because there are none of the radiused areas right in front of the trigger inlet and agreed, the tang is too short and wide.

What about a CZ centerfire rifle?

BTW, not Sako as I have those in a bunch of patterns and it just doesn't match, unless of course it is something newer that what I have patterns for.

Evan,

It appears to be a Howa.

I contacted Legacy Sports, the USA agent for Howa, and talked with their on site gunsmith. Very helpful gentleman. I sent him the photo I posted here and he identified the stock as a Howa. I am waiting for dimensions to determine if it is a long or medium!!!

I will hang another couple of photos later tonight to let you see why it was important for me to id this stock!

This stock has two damaged areas and a fore arm checkering outlined that someone screwed up that has to be fixed. I am trying to determine if it would be better to make the one repair on the toe of the butt, reshape the fore arm to remove the damage there as well as take out part of the checkering panel!

Mike

Looking forward to seeing them.

Don't know why I thought that was a Mini inlet, it does look long.

Is something going on with Photobucket? I haven't been able to access the site in almost three days now.

Its functions have been really slow for me often 20-30 seconds to load or reload pages.
