Carl Merck's reply (Now THIS is one fine gentleman, a credit to our hobby):
"Mr. Hosmer, I just wanted to fill you in on the final chapter of the fake stock. I originally received the pictures and description from Scott Sibley in Powell, Wyoming for me to place on ebay. Scott had never posted on ebay and I told him it would be easier for me to just do it for him.
He now agrees that it is a fake new stock and had drawn his conclusion from a conversation he had with Mr. Frasca about the semi finished stocks with the ESA on it. I have since seen photos from Mr. Frasca and yes, there is no comparison between the two. You were correct in that Scott determined it was authentic from his conversations with Mr. Frasca but Mr. Frasca had not seen the pics of the fake. I was caught right in the middle.
Please let your (sic) members know I had no idea this was a fake and I know Scott didn't. It's good I was able to pull the auction before someone "got hurt" in the deal. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention...Carl Merck"
