Default Fake SA GAW stock follow up post

Well guys thanks for letting me know i had a fake on my hands. I made a collage of my fake stamp in the middle with two confirmed legitimate cartouches on top and bottom just so you guys could have it for for your records to compare, hopefully i can save at least one person from getting burned like I did. Notice how the A in the GAW on mine begins directly under the period in S.A, while on the other two stocks it is offset to the right. This stock was purchased in northeast Ohio and I will update you guys with the name of the gentleman who swindled me as soon as the gun show circuit is up and running again. Maybe we can track down the origin of some of these bunk stocks. http://imgur.com/gallery/AoQYGu9
