I picked up 30-40 milsurp stocks last spring, but was mostly focused on a couple of the Mauser stocks.  I might have a couple of straight Springfield stocks, pretty sure there are some scant stocks too.  All of them would take some work, but are probably usable or good donors.

Question for Y'all;
Were the straight '03 stocks made in several different lengths-of-pull?
I have one made in March 1918 based on the serialnumber, it has 12-3/4" length-of-pull, and the bolt will poke me in the eye when I work it...

They had short stocks.  I have the same problem you've got with yours, and I've always maintained the '03 stock was really just an extra long handle for the bayonet!

??? Wasn't it?
Honestly I can't make myself keep my cheek on the stock of any bolt gun when I work the bolt. I know that's how it's supposed to be done, but that bolt starts coming back towards my eye and my head comes up.
