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.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
