I recently ordered a walnut stock from Freds and I believe it was an "excellant as new". The stock is near perfect and all the metal was like new. The stock had 40 years of dirt on it and required some cleaning and oil. I think if I would have spent more time on cleaning the stock it would be a gem. In its current condition I would say its a really nice stock. I think it was around $120 shipped and arrived in about a week. I am happy with mine.
