Slightly off-topic request

Posted by Dick Hosmer on Saturday, 3 July 2010, at 10:48 a.m.

Have just acquired another 26" BoOF rifle (389182) with duffle-cut stock, and have pretty well decided NOT to shorten a good stock for my first one, hence my current plan to set-up and do both forend restorations at the same time.

So, I am looking for a decent (but NOT "mint") Krag stock which has been bubba'd ahead of the band. MUST have a nice clear [JSA/1902] cartouche with considerable impression remaining - sanded down to a flat "stain only" appearance is NOT OK. NO extra holes, NO receiver sight notches, NO carved initials, etc. With or without furniture - but will not pay much extra for the buttplate, etc. as I do not need the metal parts.

Since I have a special need, am willing to consider paying somewhat more than such a cutoff stock might normally fetch, to get exactly what I want. No "rush", but I'll buy the right one without any delay. Please email pics and asking prices. Many thanks.
