You're right, that's saying it's USGI without actually saying it. The buyer assumed that's what he said and got hosed. That's an expensive lesson.

Why? I ask only because you are the first to say so.

Looks real to me also and very nice. If I had a pristine early Quality Hardware that was as nice as that stock and "needed" a stock, I would have jumped on it. Premium wood is much harder to find than you might think. It is the first part of a rifle that gets worn and damaged in most cases.

Not true. Normally I think premium wood is nearly impossible to find, and am almost always right about that

If this is the real deal, then it's worth every penny.

I know the buyer and he makes me look like a light weight Newbie collector. He knows what it was. And jumped on it before anyone else could.
The only thing I see is tape damage can be hard to correct.

So not fair. As usual I am late to the game and miss out on a fine looking item. With stuff like that floating around, how am I going to get rid of substandard stuff like this:

Stocks like that are ruining the market for those like myself attempting to sell things of lesser quality, hardware wise. Sigh...
