It isn't worth anything really, so I'll take it off your hands if you like.

Sad thing is, we use to buy them "all day long" like that, for $35 each.

That preservative looking stuff is more than likely dried linseed oil. Make sure you pick or get every bit of it off before oiling it again or finishing it with anything. They get locked in there under the finish, then start showing up later as white specs again.

But like I said, if you don't want all the hassle, I'll help you out.

Well done, nice score!
Thanks, I'm sure you have seen many more M14 stocks up close than I have (total of 4)...
I think I got a decent deal on it, though not anywhere near $35 I have a decent parts kit that it should look great with when I figure out what to build. Most of my parts kit is SA, not that it matters if I use a different manufacturers stock. I am just curious to know.
