I purchased this stock last year and installed it on a newly acquired rifle. I use the rifle at the range twice and it has been a safe queen ever since. The threads going into the lower receiver look nearly virgin and there are faint rub marks on the extension tube where there is a slight marring of the finish due to the extension/contraction of the stock, which is what you would expect to see after very few uses.
There is a rub mark on the upper part of the front sling swivel attachment point. The stock will come with the 1/2" recoil pad (hard)
Please e-mail me for digital photos and you will see just how nice the stock is. Please check my other listing here on the Equipment Exchange for the exact same stock except carbine length.
SPF... I still have a carbine stock for sale
