Ditto on the grain, but the price seems high. Are WWII stocks really going for nearly five bills? For that much I'd keep my eye out for a prewar C-stock. There have been a couple on eBay.

That stock isn't cut for the bolt handle, is it?

Nope.....that's why I asked about the 03A4.

That would be a lot of money to have into a stock to modify to fit an A4... Once modified it won't be good for an a3, and won't be right for a real A4 either.

It would be for my A4 project. Going to have Chuck do the work, so it'll be the best I can get besides a genuine A4 stock. Haven't seen any A4 C stocks in unfinished condition like this though. If y'all have an A4 stock and want to part with it, let me know

I am skeptical that the stock was made by Milton-Bradley. It may be a Keystone stock. But I am more inclined to believe that it's a modern reproduction. The pictures are not sufficient to identify it. If it's a modern reproduction, the stock may have bedding and fitment issues.

Are you building on a real A4 receiver with all correct A4 parts? If not, don't bother getting a correct stock. Get a good reproduction A3 and modify that for the bolt handle.

I personally have seen these stocks that this seller offers,, yes, they are Milton bradly , the last one I had in my hands still had the wrapper on it. they are blems… by that , they fit nicely, but have heavy sanding marks, repairs or cuts that are off on the outside of the stock. as for the bolt cut, if I did the cut and wanted it to be correct. likely the best so called expert wouldnt be able to tell. iv seen some stunning wood offered by the seller, and worth every penny of the selling price, with the repro stocks costing over 200.00 and they really dont fit or look right.. its worth the extra money to get a genuine G.I. issue stock thats brand new. with handguard
