Good luck, I had the same issue, took me months to find one,

I found it at a gunsmith, used but good condition.

Keep calling around and asking, because these you cant get parts for anymore so their are alot of scrapped ones out their.

On a side note a 7400 forearm won't work.

I sure love my old but good 742.

Try Ahlman's, Inc down in Morristown. They will have a replacement stock - they also have had extra/leftover stocks in their shop for many years as well. If you're within driving distance, it'd sure be worth the trip. Their shop is probably an hour south of Burnsville - 8 miles west of 35W down by Faribault.

Great gunshop.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
