    I just sold a P72 .22lr. When the gun arrived I was informed that the stock was broke in shipping. so I'm refunding the purchase price and hoping UPS will pay the insured claim. But in the mean time I will be the owner of a broken stock P72. The question is are the stocks interchangeable between a M78 and P72 and will they interchange between .22lr and Magnum?

    Thanks
    Broken hearted, broken stock guy

    the only real difference between a P72 and an M78 is the trigger, so the stocks should be interchangeable.

    It may not be a drop-in fit, but I'm sure it can be adapted with very little work. There were two, or maybe even three, different triggers on these models. It is possible that one type of trigger might require more clearance than another, but that should be a minor fix. The action itself should be pretty much the same.
