found this stock for $50 at a local flea market I added the M1 buttplate. Any idea on how to repair the split. I figured I’d mix up some JB weld and clamp it overnight then sand smooth. They had another one that someone had attempted to strengthen with what felt like 2 lbs of epoxy. I passed on that one but might go back tomorrow and offer them $20 for it. It had the spacer for the M1 buttplate.

if the stock is made out of fiberglass. Go to a store , that sells auto body supply's, and buy some fiberglass cloth and resin.
I'd suggest looking for a fiberglass repair kit. It should have everything that one would need.

well stock was still there so it followed me home. Got the stock, spacer, and screw set. Spacer and M1 garand buttplate weigh 3.4 Oz less then the stock set up. Thanks for all the information.

KurtC,
Thanks for the pics!
What is the story on these spacers?
Did they come on all original USGI Fibers?
Why are most missing, if that's the case?
They are used between Butt plate and stock?
Why are they needed if most stocks now are missing them?
I've got some USGI fibers, maybe remove my butt plates?
Thanks

The change from a Garand buttplate to a flip up style was made late, when the M15 project got cancelled. The flip up buttplates were unavailable when the first M14 were shipped, so they went out with Garand plates and these spacers. Several months later, the flip up plates were available and these spacers went in the trash (most of them). They were long gone when the fiberglass stocks began production.

So to use Garand butt plates these spacers are needed?
