    Early 1903 stocks

    I have two decent finger groove SA M1903 stocks to sell, and have no idea how to price them.

    #1 is a correct 1903MK I unmolested stock with reasonable well matched high hump hand guard and dark park grooved lower band; sharp finger grooves and weak but visible EHD cartouche and firing proof. Two shallow gouges on buttstock and other assorted scratches and minor dents consistent with issue and use. Original finish with nice patina. Overall reasonably crisp; a nice correct and properly marked stock for a collectible 80-90% Mark I action.

    #2 is a ca. 1915-16 finger groove stock with good JSA cartouche which was apparently rebuilt for WW1 with added front stock bolt, with "B" inspection stamp. It was apparently again rebuilt or inspected at Raritan arsenal in WW2 with boxed small RA-P stamp. The wrist bears 2 circle P firing proofs. All cartouches and stamps are clearly legible. Original finish with very nice patina. Several period shallow gouges, scratches, small dents,etc., but overall a nice stock for a pre WW1 rifle rebuilt and reissued for WW1 and thereafter rebuilt or reinspected for WW2.

    #3. I also have a very nice correct SA military M2 stock, excellent original condition with crisp finger grooves, original finish with small M2 stamp on bottom of pistol grip. No rebuild /reinspection stamps. The only flaw is a minor repaired crack at top left flat just behind band mortise.

    I have little experience selling stocks, baffled by process of inserting photos, and would appreciate any opinions regarding fair/reasonable value based on descriptions.

    Thanks, Dokcop
