I won the following stock on ebay the other day. It arrived yesterday and has really high quality inletting, much better
than my pictures show. There are no markings under the buttplate. The grip cap is ebony and the grip has a very pronounced Wundhammer swell. I was wondering if anyone has a clue as to who did the work on this stock. As you can see in the last picture, the tang area of the receiver must have been altered. Here is also the link to the auction as well. sporter stock

I remember that Ed Shulin did a 1903 Springfield varminter with that shape forearm, at least the groove on the sides was similar. Ed's varminter forearm was wider of course and had a rounded tip with the groove carried across the front of the forend end, no contrasting tip material. Ed also shortened the mag capacity by one round which made for a slimmer magazine belly line. This was in 1966 and was a known current style. Your stock doesn't look exactly like Ed's work although it appears to be very well done.

Am I missing something, I don't see any groove in the forend?
It does looks like the forend tip has gone missing? but the stock appears to have good layout and grain flow through the grip. Attractive wood too.

For a remodel you could add an ebony tip, remove the white lines, create some loading port details, install a (st)real grip cap, lessen the swell and checker.
Simply suggestions...

Fred,

Could you post a good picture of the raised wood in the area of where you would normally find a Lyman 48.

Steve, click on the link and then click on 'more details' or similar and then look at the last photo on the bottom row.

I think it started life as either a semi inlet Bishop or Reinhardt Fajen of Warsaw Missouri, Varminter/Target style from the early 60's.

The stock looks to have enough wood everywhere that you should be able to work it into a decent looking stock.

AL#1, a Fajen or Bishop semi-inlet would not be inlet for the reshaped tang as this stock is.

Here is a picture of the area of the stock that Michael requested, there is a bit of tape residue on the stock.
