I bought a used Mark II, do not ask me why, I just did.

I have a problem with the removal of the stock. (I can here it now, what is so dam hard about removing the screw in the back of the stock?).

Well let me tell you--After I took off the butt pad there were 2 holes ~1" in dia. One hole had of all things in it plumbers puddy in it for about 5" in depth. After two hours of picking it out with a screwdriver I found no bolt/screw/allen head fastner. The other hole has a gluded plug in it and I have started to chip/grind/cut it out. dammmmmm

I need to know how deep the head of the stock bolt is from either the recever tang or the possible depth from the but stock end.

If I didn't know better I would say this gun was worked on by a SKEET shooter!!! :)

Ignore the top hole. The bottom hole has a slotted screw it it. The screw head is exactly 6" from the end of top tang. On mine, that's 5" from the end of the stock, but don't go by that because I think a my stock was cut down slightly by the original owner. Careful -- don't ruin one of the precious remaining Mark IIs!!! -Gary

Thanks for the information,

You're welcome. If you use a spade bit or a forstner bit and be careful it shouldn't be too tough. Might need an extension, though. -Gary

I would start with a small bit as a "pilot" hole. There just might be a reducer on the other side of the plug. I had one of those Mark II's many years ago. A 34" full. Great gun!!!!!

GW22 thanks for the info on the Depth and slotted bolt.

Mike -Thanks for the input on the recoil reducer.
I tried the pilot hole and the wooden dowel spun freely.
I was able to get it out without too much trouble.
It had a Staub Mercury Reducer stuck down in it.

Now I have a question ? Is it worth using the reducer again.
Do they actually work?
