Restoring a Stomperund

Found a listing near me that has a german marked “Stomperund” but its been sporterized, is this thing gonna be a bugger to restore? The stomperunds have different wood shape from standard krags and missing bayonet lug.

Ive always wanted one of these german occupation krags but i dont know if i should wait for an intact one

It will most likely be a "bugger" to restore. Norwegian parts in general can be hard to find and are often "feast or famine". If the price was not outrageous I would buy it, be patient and see what I could find. The stock is a tough call because, in my mind, if one finds an extremely rare uncut rifle stock then cuts it that would be "sin full". The one you are looking at appears as though it could be stretched but metal pieces could be quite hard to find. It is a roll of the dice for sure.

Attached photo is an example of an 'Occupation' Norwegian Krag.

'Madsenshooter' did a restoration a number of years back.

You can use the KCA Forum 'search' feature and try to find his posts.

It appears the bayonet 'lug' was removed (ground or filed off) from the barrel of the rifle you are considering.

Nope not mine, I never did get around to cutting that full length stock!  Lots of things I don't get around to anymore!

'madsenshooter' - I thought you had finished a 'Stomperud' restoration. My mistake.

(I was never implying the one pictured was yours).

Does that rifle have a stepped barrel? Hard to see from pic.

If you're referring to the one at the link you posted, yes.  His step is forward of the upper band.  It isn't much of a step.  .666" behind it, .637" ahead of it.  Now that you've mentioned it, I don't see a step on the barrel of the one the OP posted.

If you get the rifle, PM for Parts. I have some of the metal you may need.
