This is a superb custom stock made for a post-war standard rifle. It is the work of an expert stockmaker with perfect lines, exquisite checkering with fleur-de-lis finales, and inletting which fits the factory standard action and bottom metal like a glove.
The stock appears to be made from a highly figured piece of French walnut.
The vintage finish is even and unworn across the entire stock. There are a few very minor handling marks, but no notable scratches or nicks in the wood. The checkering is unblemished and expertly done. The stock came to us with a very tight hairline crack from the tang screw into the wrist. It has been professionally repaired using the high-pressure epoxy injection method. The repaired crack is not visible and is guaranteed against opening up again. The stock has a vented Pachmayer recoil pad installed.
