    I purchased a Citori replacement stock on ebay. The person advertised as a take off of a type II. When it arrived it had no serial number. It has an X where normally the numbers matching it to a gun would be. Everything looks right except where the cheeks of the stock would match up to the receiver. When you do a "try" it appears you would have to reshape the cheek to the tune of about a fat 1/8" In all the places that sells new browning stocks they make the disclaimer that all stocks require final fitting...my question this much? Any help or experience would greatly be appreciated.

    If it was advertised (truthfully and accurately) as a take off it obviously fit some model of gun and shouldn't require fitting. My guess is either you don't have a type II or else the sellers advertised spec's aren't accurate.

    Thanks,

    One thing I did not mention is that I highly (99.999%)suspect it was never on a gun. I haven't bought a much for guns on e-bay....stocks a forearms may not be the best place to get a deal. I think your echoing my suspensions. Pat

    To anyone who can help or with experience: I'm just wandering if it's normal to have that much fitting to replace the stock on a citori. It appears with a good bit of work it can fit nicely...I think.

    Pat,
    I recently bought a stock for a 1981 Citori trap from Midwest Gunworks. I too was worried about the "slight fitting may be necessary" disclaimer. However, when I got the stock and went to assemble .... it fit right on the receiver perfectly. No sanding or modifications needed at all. I cant imagine a replacement stock (from Browning) would require anywhere near 1/8" of trimming at the receiver.

    It depends then on who made the stock. Some stocks that are intended to need fitting leave a good bit of extra wood so there is no doubt you will be able to make it fit.

    Thanks everybody. I decided yesterday late to keep the stock and try to inlet it myself. I'm at the point where I need some specialized tools.

    This is my first double gun. It's been drug through the mud and muck of 15 years of hard-core duck seasons, dog training and epic California quail hunts. It's been rode hard and put up wet. Now I want to clean it up and pass it on to my son. Does anybody know a good stock person in California? Pat
