An original M14 walnut "Big Red" wood stock. These are a late production modified design of the original M14 wood stock. The pistol grip/wrist area and receiver/mag cutout were thickened to increase durability. Many shooters appreciate the larger pistol grip for better control and the additional wood around the receiver cutout that makes bedding the receiver easier. Most walnut big reds do have original DAS and Circle P stamps, as they were original issue on production rifles.
Walnut big reds are the most rare pattern of wood M14 stocks. The United States was running out of walnut as the M14 stock was being redesigned - birch was being phased in.
Excellent - looks like a well maintained, issued stock. Dings, wear and scratches are light, finish is in good shape. Metal shows some wear, but not excessive. This is the grade you won't feel embarassed to put on a newer rifle. Plan on wiping it down with some mineral spirits and think about putting on a coat of tung oil. If you're a stock refinisher, the process will be a lot faster than with a VG/VG+ as the dings and scratches will be fewer and shallower. Straight (not fancy) grain.
Comes wth a complete metal kit attached. The buttplate is in good to very good condition. There is an upgrade option available for an excellent condition buttplate.
