Rob, your killing me! I'd say gorgeous but would only display my grasp of the obvious. Nicely done..

Here's a pic of when I first got my M1C. it has a modern G&H base and mount topped with an old Weaver K4. I decided to take off the GI base for now because G&H fitted their base with the mount and I personally lack the skills to do it myself.



Here's a more recent pic with my new reproduction M84.

I wanted to show my M1c and D but can't find all the photos!

What I have uploaded is a few closeup photos of the Cheekpads on the stocks.

I'm fairly sure both cheekpads are USGI but interested in any opinions on that and how I have them installed.

Thanks!

The dark one, 3-59, is a fake.

OK, I believe you, what tells you that it’s fake? It’s not a recent fake or if it is someone went through a bunch of effort to age it.

It looks the part enough so I’ll leave it on until I can replace it with a USGI one.

I agree, I think the 3-59 is fake. I don't think the originals had "MRT" and the date embossed into the leather, it was ink stamped.

Also, the stitching doesn't end in the typical triangular pattern present on authentic cheek pads.

Makes good sense to me, fortunately the price was right as it was a gift.

I'm still wondering WHEN it was made because the other repros are clearly new leather and this was either on a rifle for a good while or someone went to more trouble than it's worth to age this.

Thanks to all
