Default Jim Roach dba M1 Carbine Man on eBay

Good evening.

There's a fellow named Jim Roach advertising M1 Carbine stock refinish services on eBay. His user name is hiddensprings2020.

His services include fixing cracks and splits as well as cleaning and refinishing in oil or gloss finish. He says he can also remark original stampings or do custom markings like owner initials.

Anyone use him? Recommend or no?

Thanks.

Most people on this site that are familiar with him would tell you to just steer clear of him. For years he would post reworked stocks with fake cartouches without mentioning that in the description. As time has gone by he generally describes them as "tribute" stocks, which is better than misleading by omission. I can't really comment on his stock work, but if what he puts up for sale is any indication, it seems okay.

If it's the same guy I'm thinking of, a lot of the pictures of the stocks he works on are way over sanded. If you look at the buttplate area, it looks like there is quite a bit of overhang all the way around it. If that's not a problem for you, the rest of the stock appears to be presentable.

Generally speaking remarking old cartouches or adding new “tribute” ones is an area a lot of us feel is unethical or unsavory.

Others may disagree but certainly selling a stock with a cartouche you know is refreshed to added without disclosing same is bad news and not an acceptable business practice in my opinion.

Fully agree, unethical behavior. Stay true or find a different passion.
