I have never heard an M14A1 (or E2) stock called "Frankenstein".

Unless it has a bunch of thrown together crap on it for hardware.

No Frankenstein here!

Here's a real foregrip. I used to have pics of a fake, but they were lost with the "crash".....



The markings aren't the important thing to look at. Look at the quality and machining.

Actually, the pics are still there!

Here are some pics of a fake foregrip. These were faked back in the late 70's, so don't think you are "safe" just because they are "old".

I found and bought the M14E2 stock here in our PX sometime early 2009 from a member here named raptor. I was there at the right time and place. Thanks for the compliment.DI5
