Folks,

I found, and bought, 36 new unissued 1928 crossbolt buttstocks -- no other metal -- at the show I was at this weekend. I have 21 Savage marked, 11 with a W (Wildfowler Co.), and 4 that are either unmarked or unreadable by me. Anyway, thought I would offer them here first. I'm asking $7.00 each, 4 for $25.00, or $200.00 for all 36 if anyone would like the whole lot. Since they are a little weighty, I'll pack any you want and get actual USPS postage before giving you a total. E-mail me if anyone is interested. Thanks much!

On the other hand, the Numrich stocks are "take what you get." If these $7 stocks are selected as of high quality, the $7 versus Numrich's $3.50 may be worth the added $3.50 even though it is double the price.

I'd agree on that one, it seems that some of the NAC are in fairly poor shape. I received a few that were fantastic, and just in need of a final finish and some sanding, but others looked like they are war casualties.

Sometimes you get what you pay for.

For what it's worth, I hand selected all of these from over 100 that the dealer had. I chose each one with an eye to overall condition -- no dings, scratches, or gouges -- grain, color, finish and maker. In short, they're nice. And if nothing else they can always be sawn into slabs for pistol grip blanks biggrin.gif. I'll be at the MAX show in Charlotte most of this week so if anybody is in the area and would like to pick a few, come on over!

Last year I bought a NOS walnut M1A1 pistol grip, and had some trouble finding it. The gent I bought it from had purchased all that a neighbor had left, which was just a few. The neighbor had originally had many cases of them, and had been using them for firewood. blink.gif
