Have you tried getting a hold of Doc White, or whomever might be running the show these days, if not Gary?

Do you have the full length mannlicher stock, but are missing the end cap, or do you have a sporter stock and would like to convert over? If you have a sporter, then a forend cap won't work for you without some custom updates.

Finding the part might be quite difficult. Having a local machine shop mill you one will be relatively expensive, but it's not a bad option - it's not a hard part to produce. Having a bandsaw that could cut the form, I might even try my hand at cutting a stainless block myself if I were in your shoes.

I'd be scouring Ebay for take off stocks, or other sites like it. Then, like I said, go check out some local machine shops and fab shops and see what they might charge to cut it out for you.
