PS;LOCK and LOAD,nothing wong with any of the M1A stocks appearances they all look good IMHO as do all the riflestocks pictured.
Thanks.... but have you seen Jrebs stocks??? WOW!!!!
I just freshened mine up and then gave them a coat of furniture wax over the BLO.
I do prefer a synthetic for the range, I have kids that shoot 'em and anyone else with me or at the range... they take abuse better and I wont cry over a dent or scratch.
Im searching now for another USGI wood stock to refinish for the preban I just picked up, she came dressed in the 'ole brown synthetic.
