I bought this at the Costa Mesa show several years ago. It's an Italian BM59 full length stock that has had a plug added to the muzzle end, about an inch, to make it fit a Garand. With this addition, it is completely indistinguishable for a standard stock, all metal fits. The set has no metal but includes the front handguard and upper handguard. Stock GI metal parts will fit this wood.

It matches pretty well, looks similar to the Boyd's Walnut in color, it has a stamp on it that says "US", no other markings. I wanted to replace it with a nicer Boyd's stock, but it's pretty nice, no cracks, dings, or scratches that I can see. The three pieces are a pretty good color match. I have no idea what the type of wood is, it is very solid and heavy. I make no representations about the collector value of this, the BM59 reference was from the guy I bought it from to explain the plug, he said they were an inch shorter than Garands. This may or may not be true.

I would like to keep this local, I live in Fullerton and work in Santa Ana.

$75.00 for the set.

I will dig around and put up some pictures today/tonight.

EDIT--Here's a shot of the stock, it's on top in this shot above the unfinished Boyd's. If you look closely, you can see the wooden plug at the muzzle end. AGAIN, NO METAL, despite the picture, which was taken before I switched the metal to my new stock.

Here's a shot of the muzzle end, as you can see, unless you are looking for it, the match is pretty well done,
