I made this little spanner wrench out of a piece of junk I had clattering around the shop in order to make sure that the bolt was torqued up tight.

After 70 years or so a wooden stock tends to dry out and shrink, and bolts that might have been tight back then are often found somewhat loose now - as I have observed to frequently be the case in these old milsurp rifles.

Sure enough, all of my stock bolts in several M-44s that have passed through my shop as well as the M-91/30 took about a quarter turn to snug back up tight - which probably contributes to the stability and harmonic balance of the stock.

I don't know of anyone who sells these things, and they certainly don't come with the accessory tools that I'm aware of, so it comes in handy now and then.

Nice -- of course, now I need to check the tightness of that bolt on my rifle; didn't even realize it was an issue before reading this...
