    I didn't - the stock set that came on the rifle is walnut. I replaced all the wood with this birch set. It doesn't hurt the value of the rifle, since it'd been rebuilt at least once. I wish I could say I magically transformed the "original" stock, but alas :wink2:

    Todd, almost sure I don't have one but I will look Monday. Think you got most of the metal parts I had, but I will see if there is any wood left in the chest.

    Those are some good lookin' rifles!
    The new stock on the last one is awesome.
    Filling out another CMP order today, gotta get me a WWll era Springer and Winny.
    Gonna keep a form and overnight envelope on hand for when the IHCs go on sale, too.

    Thanks. You do know though that the CMP is only offering HRA's at this time via mail order? They're "sold out" of Springfields and Winchesters for now, and it may be a while before the SA's turn up again for sale. I'm dubious about the WRA's being numerous enough to be offered for sale again, unless you just happen to be in one of the two Stores the day they put a handful of those out on the racks. They've done that a few times over the last six months or so.

    As for the IHC's... I'm watching for that sale as well, but I'll wait for the initial reports. If the price is market correct or nearly so, and a lot of the rifles turn out to be mixmasters, I'll pass. It'd be pricey to try and correct one of those rifles.
