rolling block butt plate

Post by frenchie » Tue Dec 12, 2006 3:56 pm

Hello out there, I have a old #1 blackpowder rolling block,had to replace the buttstock,can't seem to locate a butt plate for it,I have two plates,but they are too large in the tang area and have too much curve in the curved area. Any help out there.
Thanks

I'm not going to be too much help. Gun shows may be your best bet. I believe antiqueguns.com has a section for searching for parts. I have never tried to interchange the butt plates on my Rolling Blocks; kind of thought all Remington butt plates were the same on military rifles. The Spanish-made Rolling Blocks have a much flatter butt plate that Remingtons.
Good luck!!

frenchie, look at E-bay. Just recently they had just a steel buttplate and also an old beat up and repaired split buttstock which the seller stated was for sale more for the sling swivel and buttplate than for the old wood. I am not sure which buttplate you need but best of luck....<><.... :D
