Wenig stock set for garand

I've got an SA CMP garand and would like to put a GOOD stock set on it. What do you guys think of the Wenig stock sets? Are they worth the money in terms of looks and fit? Thanks.

In a word, YES!!!

Well, I think so anyways...

If you get one, then get it from Dean's Gun Restorations. Dean does a bit of inletting on the stocks that you won't get buying one directly from Wenig & IMHO, it's worth the extra money.

I bought a standard grade fitted/unfinished Wenig stock from Dean & I couldn't be happier with it. The fit & feel of the stock is just outstanding.

The Wenig is on the '41 SA on the left. I didn't stain it, just few coats of Danish oil.

Quagmire, I was browsing Ebay and noticed an upper handuard that is a perfect match for the middle stock in the above photo. It needs to be reoiled to highlight the flame in the grain. Just in case you are interested.

Danish Oil

Quagmire,

What brand of Danish Oil do you use?

Thanks Ralfus, that does look like a good match!

cadillo: I used Deft danish oil on those three (went overboard on the HRA). Lately though I've been using Watco danish oil. It seems to give a more military finish than the Deft does.

This is a Wenig semi-fancy Bastonge walnut.
It cost $215.00 plus some shipping. However,
Quagmire is right, unless you are familiar with fitting
a stock to the Garand, get one from Dean. The Wenig
stocks require a lot of final fitting (more so than Boyd's
stocks) but they can be fit better that way.
