    Digging in the wood pile again.

    ...............................

    I were hunting for some Enfield wood for a few projects I have going and found this like new original stock and cheek pad. I recall buying a box with several stocks and smaller boxes of M1icon parts way back when. I think it will make a great wall hanger.



    There was a back story but you must always buy the item before he story.

    MJ, don't take this personally, but that's crap.

    Looks like SA open box typically found on sniper rebuilds.

    I have one more complete parts set and DCM receiver with a nice stock and don't think flooding the market with another persudo sniper is in my plan.

    More like a wall hanger.

    in the wood pile

    I found this deluxe walnut blank (rear section) of a two piece walnut blank that was purchased many years ago. I had forgot about ! Perfect for single shot rifle or a shotgun, excellent figure on both side and ends sealed-up. I do plan on selling this wood. The M1icon rifle stock is early Winchester no trap from one of my rifles

    There was a story that Winchester was short of wood so they dug into the special figure wood to make M1icon stocks to carry on production. Very nice.

    fancy walnut from Winchester

    I would sure bet these fancy walnut no trap Winchester stocks were produced for the Educational Order M1icon rifles. Those stocks could have been set aside for M70 Super Grades until needed to help complete the E.O. contract. Afternoon sunlight helps enhance the photos

    Nice, imagine being issued with one of those knowing what you do now. You'd have that just glowing for morning parade. Then a trip to the obstacle course would change the gleam a bit...but you'd know you could get it back.

    Priority

    It's amazing that WRA's priority rating was very low and they had real trouble getting material. Early on they were in imminent danger of running out of steel and having to shut down production. They had plenty of their own chrome moly steel on hand for commercial rifles but they could not get permission to use it. Finally the project manager took his job in his hands and authorized it on his own until they got more steel. Those are all the A and CM parts we see.
