Default USGI parts.

Just counted up the connector arms in a box in my workshop 495.
Yep USGI parts are getting scarce. Would this be considered hoarding?

I like them , but I miss the selector cutout. Bula is using the same wood. This is the stock on a custom .450 busmaster that had to follow me home. What's not to like?

Hey Art, I believe you on the JR stock....I wonder why their PR dept. chose to showcase the stained hardwood stock in the Firearm News M-14 spread, a couple of months ago....regards....alex

JR likes darker appearance. Bula likes them not as dark as JR. Both companies do their own staining after they get the stock from their vendor.
The stock in the photo was too light in color for Bula's liking. I made the comment that if they made a particular rifle by the next day I would take it in that stock. The BDX 450 was the result. From request to my hands in less than 24 hours. Sure enjoy dedication to the hobby that is shown by the folks at Bula.
The more I look at this stock the more I like it.

I bought a Springfield Armory M1A. After seeing your stock, I wonder if the stock on my M1A was "repurposed" from a bolt action rifle because it has a "cut out" on the right side that looks like a bolt would have been. Am I right or wrong?

You are probably seen the cutout for a selector switch.
