    The Sunnyside brand RLO is also available through Tru-Value Hardware stores. I found it in Greenwood, SC about 30 miles north of here. It's a bit cheaper there than on Amazon with the shipping.

    I agree on all points. I've noticed over the years as I've seen quite a few Johnson rifles, that the butt is very fragile where it's thin around the tang. They are almost always chipped or cracked....
