Default NOS M14E2 Stocks

Today, I attended the Great Eastern Gun and JAG Military Show in Louisville, KY. At the show, there was a gentleman selling NOS Birch M14E2 Stocks. The price was $150/stock or $120/stock if you bought a box of 10.

Below are some pictures of the stock I purchased:





I looked through 3-4 boxes of stocks trying to locate one with striping/flames. The stock I purchased was the only one I could find.

It seems a bunch of these NOS Birch M14E2 Stocks have hit the market all at once. I've seen Forum Members selling them. I've also noticed Treeline M14 is offering them now.

With these stocks becoming more available, I'm sure the demand for the metal components has gone up.

I figured I'd post this information for anyone in the Louisville area that is interested in obtaining a NOS M14E2 stock at a reasonable price.

Looks like the price is going down quickly and I like that. I wish you would have gotten the fellows phone number. I got one now but would like to replace the wood.

I had the bad luck of being the AR man at Ft. Benning, Ga 1969. They handed me a M14 with pistol grip stock, full auto. Mostly fired at the moon and the handguard got red hot. I had to wear leather gloves. A really bad idea that everyone laughed at. Who tested this concept in the first place?

I couldn't convince you to go buy me one could I?

I wonder where they have all come from suddenly.

Lots of luck finding USGI parts for them. Really hard to find to say the least.

If I lived closer to Louisville, I'd be more willing to help you out. Unfortunately, I live 200 miles away.

Gunny's Surplus was the main guy selling these stocks. He told me that someone is having the rest of the hardware reproduced since he came up with a large group of these stocks. The repo hardware is supposed to be really good and should sell for about $100 a set. Neglected to ask who is having the repos done. He told me that he sold 170 of these stocks to other dealers just on friday night. Appearred to have lots left.

Thanks for the encouragement.

I was aware, prior to purchasing the M14E2 stock, that the metal and rubber buttplate would be very tough to find. With the recent sale of these , the demand will spike.

I have no idea how many of these NOS stocks were found. If there is enough demand, maybe someone will start making readily available reproduction parts?

These reproduction parts could work until you came across the USGI parts.

(Apparently someone is planning to produce reproduction parts - Thanks for the info bigchuck350)

I looked at Gunney's Surplus and he has them for 175 plus shipping. 25.00 more than the gun show and the shipping I guess isn't too bad. Beats driving 200 miles from here to get one at the next Louisville gun show. I already have one in walnut but it has some cracks but the metal is fine shape so I may order one.

Or wait to see if the price goes down some more.

I have an excellent repro forward grip that I would sell. I had it until I found USGI. I paid $150 plus ship for it, would sell for the same.
