German K98 Stocks and Wood Types
German K98 Stocks and Wood Types
(Article and pics courtesy of "rcmauser")

"Here are few pics comparing laminated and solid wood k98 stocks styles that you might find helpful.

The first four pics are of laminated stocks. Laminated stocks are made from beech wood strips that are glued together similar to the plywood manufacturing process . These examples use the red glue in between the laminations. There is a white glue variation out there, also. Not as common as the red glue. You can see laminations and how the red glue is highlighted. The dark one is wearing the russian capture shellac.

The second set of four show solid wood k98 stocks. The bottom stock is a post war solid beech wood Israeli stock... This style is sometimes confused with laminated stocks.
