Depends, is it a aluminum buttplate ? Should also have a rubber spacer with numbers 7790914 molded into it. These are the parts that are rare

The M14 was designed to use a Garand style buttplate. Pre production stocks (T44E4) will be cut as such. The flap style buttplate that we are all familiar with wasn't adopted until 1959.

The stock you describe is uncommon. Price depends on condition. Some are decent, some were used for a lot of testing at Springfield Armory in the 50's.

If memory serves, I have also seen a few T44E4 stocks that had Garand style steel buttplates with reversed checkering. Instead of sticking out, the checkering is stamped in.

Thanks guys for the info....Today at the Oaks gun show, at Bill Ricca's table he has one for sale.....He stated it is quite rare, and the price is $1K....The one I looked at is about 90%....Plain Jane brown color....It is not as nice as 7.62X51one in the picture....Looks like an HRA butt plate, standard checkering.....Has a thumb nail crimp....I will give it a second look next week....thanks again....regards...alex
