I just got another '03 NRA sporter that has had the stock checkered. I believe that the S-man did the checkering, Fred will be along with the photos that I think show this. The NRA sporter is the bottom rifle in the photos and before some says the one gun with a PG cap isn't an S-man, they are wrong, That is the only one seen so far without his typical S shaped PG and was one of those in Michael's original list of S-man rifles.
