I am working with a 1889 ... the guy I am attempting to repair it for wants it for a wall hanger ... family gun ... functioning is not a consideration.

The stock is broken and he would like to have it secured.

I have never removed a stock from an 1889 ... can not find any internet video help. I do not want to make the problem any worse than it already is.

I have these screws removed, the trigger guard moved forward and the hammers removed out of the way.

What is the procedure for getting the stock off ? What is holding it ? Any tricks here ?

THANKS in advance for any help ...

You have to remove both locks and the trigger plate. Then the stock will drop free from the frame. Removing the locks without chipping the wood around them can be very difficult.

From the April 1897 Remington Arms Co. catalog --

Please excuse my ignorance here but I need some clarification.

Screws out of the Trigger plate and it comes out ?

Do I need to remove the screw from the locking plate and take it off ? If so does removing the plate post any problem with the pins or posts they seem to be holding in place ?

My experience in the double barrel world is very limited so I am groping here a little - well a lot.

I do appreciate your time and effort in helping out.
