Re: Metcalfe on Gun Broker

I'm not so sure about the stock, though it could be the camera angle. Mine has a lot more wood in the flat behind the lower band, and my device is slightly recessed. On that one the bar is proud, and that COULD be because someone tried to fake the flat. Once a stock is fully finished, to standard profile, you cannot make a (proper) Metcalfe stock out of it. If buying that one, I'd INSIST on being allowed to return it. If seller refused, walk. The non-matching finishes are to be expected as 99.9% of Metcalfes (including mine) are reassemblies, but you DO at least want all genuine parts.
