Walther Stock Replacement Options?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello,

Bought this gun last year and it's accurate with a great trigger. Starting to shoot this offhand for a Sporter Rifle Course with the aperture sights.
Being 63 with arthritis it's a little too heavy at 10lbs 5oz.

Can you recommend a lighter weight replacement stock option or should I consider removing wood off this stock?

Thank you!

Barrel is the main weight. So replacing stock or removing wood will be only a small change.

Igrlik is correct. The barreled action is where the bulk of the overall weight is. Removing wood from the stock can reduce a little weight but it will come at the cost of an irremediable alteration of a very nice looking UIT Spezial stock.

I would check the stock for weights. Since the gun was imported from Germany, there is a good chance that there are weights in the front stock or behind the buttplate. Those were usually round standard 100 gram steel weights.

Thanks for info.

Haven't removed stock yet. So I'll do that.
