Although they are not I-cut stocks, Sarco has USGI stocks. I bought 3 of them last summer and
couldn't be happier. Additionally I remember reading that they have USGI high wood stocks for about $100.

I just took the plunge and ordered one with matching handguard.. They said it would take about a week. Will let everyone know what kind of stock I get.

cheers

I received mine in the mail. Looks nice- I haven't tried to fit it to gun yet. Noticed the cutout area for the sling to pass through in the buttstock looks a little uneven and misshapen. Anyone else notice this on theirs yet?

I had the same issue as shooter 5x. The slingwell had some poorly done areas to it and looked like junk. I contacted Dupage and returned it for one that hopefully isnt as jacked up.

Otherwise, the stock is awesome. Well worth the 55$. Here it is in the box - as I opened it

I didnt bother putting hardware on it or a carbine into it - as it was going right back. I just felt that the one I got was a defect due to poor finishing / work in the sling well. Heres the photos.

I wonder if these stocks are 55$ because all of them are hosed up like that. I'll see in a week or so when I get the replacement stock from Dupage. I really hope that what I got is truly a "defect" and not representative.

From the first pictures I thought you were crazy for sending it back, it's got a very nice grain/color to it.

From the close ups though I can't believe they let that thing leave their shop, that's terrible. I suppose they expect you to cover the cost of shipping it back to them??

Default same type of defects

mine had the same type of defects around the I cut slot

looks like the milling machine that was used to cut the slot overran a bit either from deflection or is the are using a patern tracer the styles is bein bumped to hard and deflecing in spots.

I decided to keep mine for the price i can live with it - it is minor on my shooter

Except for the sling well it looks pretty nice. I'm still waiting for somebody to put a rifle in theirs to see how it fits.

I was really excited when I opened the box to see that piece of wood in there- but was very dissapointed on inspection of the slingwell.

I generally hold Dupage in high regard. The stock was a very nice piece of wood. Its really a shame that there were "blems".

I contacted Dupage via email, with photos and requested that they send me a return sticker so i could send it back and exhcange for a "non defective" stock. The Fedex man came on Thursday and picked the stock up. I never actually got an email response from Dupage.

I wish they would have got back to me - or I'll have to call them, as I'd like a matching handguard to go with it - as I was impressed with the wood itself.

If these stocks truly all have that issue - I would have liked to seen that disclosed when purchasing. I realize the $55 price is "too good to be true" - and had reservations on sending back such a nice piece of wood. I wish Dupage would have just emailed me back and said "theyre all like this" - so I could have made the decision whether to risk getting one slightly better but still not right - or just keep the piece of wood that I have.

For $55 - it appears to be a very functional, and pretty stock. I wonder how apparent the issue would be with a sling installed.

I would have just liked more info up front - if they happen to be "blems". From the things I've made and sold in the past, I've taken the time to QC everything that goes out the door to make sure my customers get A grade items - as they paid for and expect A grade. Anything that doesnt meet my standard gets held back, corrected if possible, and then labeled, advertised, priced and sold as B grade with full disclosure of any issues.

I look forward to getting my 2nd stock from Dupage and will post photos when it arrives. I intend to do a review to post on my website at a future point when the weather warms up and I can get photos outside in natural light.

I dont mean any of this as an affront or slam on Dupage - I've been very happy with them in the past and look forward to all the great things they'll have in the future.

Nice looking grain, too bad on the sling well cut.
It's out of character for how well the rest of the stock looks.

Just to talk about pricing...
consider potbelly used stocks, nicked and chipped take offs, with FAT marked are going for 45 - 50bux....
