    Looking at it in 500x I can just make out the UEF over the GHD.
    Not sure, but believe in the middle of the wrist you can make out the circular ghost of a Underwood CC.

    Stock had to be sanded, to remove the splinters......... After someone put the Power Washer to it. Look at how it blew the grain open !
    I agree with Del, that it is a RMC stock.

    QHMC CC added to fill someones needs at the time, Shame.

    Example Pic of UEF over GHD:



    PS: May be remnant of Circled P on grip bottom, unless Washed/sanded away.

    That's pretty cool! While I am not happy with that result, it definitely helps with my decision process reference this rifle. Thanks!

    Jim,
    Somebody has tried a deep cleaning to degrease maybe using oven cleaner (which contains lye, a known wood fiber eater). Or maybe a too aggressive dish washer cycle.
    My WAG is a caustic cleaner was used followed by a water blasting. No Walnut should have a open grain pattern like this. If it did, they might as well have used oak for stocks.
    After a blasting like that, they had no choice but to sand away the splinters.
    I pulled stocks from laying in piles outside for years that showed sun fading and mildew but still had tight grain.
    Remember FRANKEN STOCK ??

    Out here on the Left Coast, I've seen exactly one Rock-ola. I would definitely buy one if the price was OK. Out here it would be $1000+ maybe even $1300.
